Hawaii ... Day 5 ... Whale Watching

Day 5 ... Wednesday
February 26, 2014

On Wednesday we went whale watching!!!

 Our tour left out of A-Bay (Anaeho'Omalu Bay) which is a beautiful little beach in the Waikoloa Resort area.

Mom, Susan & Brooke had all been whale watching before, but this was my first time & I thought it was super cool!

We saw a lot of whales! I think about 12 in all.

We saw them blowing

and flapping their tails.

And this one swam right under our boat!

We also saw this guy in a kayak. He kept getting so so so close to the whales! I was scared for him! But the captain of our boat said he's out there every single morning watching the whales. I think he might be crazy!

Our tour lasted about 2 hours & ended back at the beautiful A-Bay.

After the whale watching, we ate lunch at the Lava Lava Beach Club at A-Bay.

Not only was the food at Lava Lava delicious but the view was TO. DIE. FOR!

We literally had lunch right on the beach!

When we were done eating, we walked around the rocky side of A-Bay.

And watched a sea turtle swim right up on the shore to lay in the sun.

After lunch we headed back to the room to relax and swim in the pool for the rest of the afternoon.

Around 6 pm we headed towards a small harbor town just north of Waikoloa called Kawaihae. 
The sun began to set along the way.

So we pulled over & stopped to watch it.

While in Kawaihae, we ate a fabulous dinner at a restaurant called Cafe Pesto & then looked around the Harbor Gallery, a cool little store that has lots of items handmade by Hawaiian artists.
