North Shore Beach in Hawaii

North Shore Beach in Hawaii

It looks like a near-perfect beach day at Haleʻiwa Beach Park on the North Shore of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our 2023 Hawaiʻi trip. When you hear of North Shore beaches on Oʻahu, people are probably talking about beaches just a bit east of Haleʻiwa Beach Park. But this park was a nice place for us to visit, and we saw lots of sea turtles out in the water while we were there, too.

Waves wash onto the shore at Kaʻena Point Beach on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi during our 2023 Hawaiʻi trip. If you have been following along on the posts from our trip, this photo may look familiar, because I posted a similar view several months ago. This view is not exactly the same as that previous one to begin with. And besides that, I like this one better. The processing makes the photo look clearer and brighter.
Crashing Waves at Cocoa Beach

Waves crash upon the shore at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach, Florida. And yes, that is Laura out in the waves. During our October 2023 Florida trip, Laura and I spent a day at Cocoa Beach, one of our favorite places to spend a day. For most of the day it was cloudy and slightly cool, but that did not keep us from getting in the water, and it did not keep us from enjoying our day.
From Atlantic to Pacific, Or the Other Way Around

From Atlantic to Pacific, Or the Other Way Around

We have done some traveling this year, and those travels have taken us to both the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. Putting those together, one thought ran through my mind: From Atlantic to Pacific, Gee the traffic is terrific! “Home for the Holidays” by Al Stillman and Robert Allen (Made famous by Perry Como and the Carpenters, among others) Except that we went from Pacific to Atlantic, chronologically speaking.

Waves crash into rocks along the shoreline at Kaʻena Point State Park on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi. We visited Kaʻena Point State Park early in our trip, as we were looking to check out some of the beaches of Oʻahu. If you have not already done so, you might want to read about it in Part 4 of the trip report. I always enjoy seeing waves splash high when they crash into rocks, and this beach provided a good show of that.

A lifeguard station on the beach at Kaʻena Point State Park on the island of Oʻahu in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our June 2023 Hawaiʻi Trip. During our visit to Kaʻena Point, we happened to walk by the lifeguard station, which looked to me to be a good photo opportunity. For whatever reason, lifeguard stations are interesting to me, such as this one at Cocoa Beach, Florida and this one on the Hawaiian island of Kauaʻi.

The Hawaiʻi trip in June 2023 continues with a visit to a North Shore beach and some night photos. If you have not done so already, you might want to read the previous part. Monday, June 19, 2023 By now, if you have been reading the trip report, you know our usual routine. This day started like the others. No complaints at all. Great company, great scenery, a great place.

Looking down the shore at Kaʻena Point State Park on the island of Oʻhau in Hawaiʻi, as seen during our June 2023 trip. If you have read part 4 of the trip report, you may recall reading that I took lots of beach photos, but that I did not include all that many in that post. This is one of the many that I did not include. Not that it was not good enough to “make the cut”, but just that I had too many to choose from.

As our Hawaiʻi trip in June 2023 continues, we go out searching and wind up at the beach. If you have not done so already, you might want to read the previous part. Friday, June 16, 2023 It does not take us long to settle into a routine. Just as with the previous day, my alarm started waking us up at 7:00 AM, and then after showering and such, we ate breakfast on the Riedels’ balcony.
Peering at a Grand Cayman Pier

Peering at a Grand Cayman Pier

Peering at a pier in George Town, Grand Cayman, as seen during our 2022 Disney Cruise. During our stop in Grand Cayman, I was looking for interesting things to photograph, as I always do in new places. We found a small beach, and that beach had some nice views of the cruise ships that were anchored out in the harbor. As I was taking photos of the ships, I decided to include this pier in one of the photos.
