Interrupting our beach crawl for an hour, to learn some Hawaiian classics on the Ukelele, was a great idea. I had a fun time and learned a new strumming technique. On our way out, we watched a crowd (of predominantly Japanese tourists) taking hula lessons. I love cheesy tourist activities, so I'm glad that I saw the sign for the classes when we grabbed a late lunch at Mahaloha Burger during our first day on the island.

Hālona Blowhole and Paragliding

Hālona Blowhole

Hālona Blowhole is a unique rock formation on Oahu, just off of Hanauma Bay. Hālona means "lookout". When the tides are high, the shape of the rock helps to create a spray that shoots high into the air, like a geyser. The winds weren't in our favour that day, and we didn't witness it. Like everything else in Hawaii, the scenery was so beautiful that we were just thrilled to be there, blowhole or no blowhole.

We also stopped in a parking lot to admire a paraglider who was floating through the air for quite a long time. There was a time that we thought kite surfing might be a fun idea, this seems even more insane. Who knows, maybe someday...
