We heard there was a hurricane on the way, so we went to the beach!
We saw helicoptors dropping water on a wild fire near our home, so we stopped for some Shave Ice on the way.
Nathan and his brother, Terry, went scuba diving in "The Trench" while we snorkeled and played in the sand at Ali'i beach. They saw turtles:
(insert Jaws theme song)
A white tipped reef shark. About 7 feet long. Scary! (Nathan took some totally cool video of both the shark and turtle with his fancy new underwater camera - happy birthday to Nate - so if you know how to upload video to blogger, let me know.)
It was a beautiful day! And a great way to wrap up our visit with our fun California cousins!
I didn't feel the earthquake, and though we had a little bit of wind and rain, we didn't see much of Flossie.
I think there was a Tsunami warning along with an earthquake today in Peru? but that's been lifted. Let's see: Hurricane, tsunami, earthquake, drought, fire...Are there any natural disasters we're missing out on today?
ps - In the interest of honesty, that first beach picture is actually from a few days ago at a totally different beach, but it's a cute picture, isn't it? We really did go to the beach during the hurricane warning!
