The day starts as my friend Dawn slips behind the wheel again. . . and we are off exploring the coast of Oahu.
First stop, the park high above picture perfect Hanauma Bay.
Back in the car we start up the coast.
Stop the car!
I do as directed and find myself sharing the top of the rock with some sort of shrine. What is this?
Sandy Beach sprawls in the distance.
Back in the car Dawn informs me that this perfect hidden beach is the one in the movie From Here to Eternity. She probably wouldn’t have pointed that out except, while I was out taking pictures, Lane was divulging the fact that the 1951 novel was my pre-trip reading. (I suspect they both found that amusing.)
As we continue along the coast we pass a number of lovely beaches and stop at a few.
