The North Shore of O'ahu, February 2002
In the above picture I am the little dot in the middle. I am
sliding straight down the wave - the last wave I caught in Hawai'i.
Bodysurfing is the sport that most makes my heart sing.
This picture reminds me of the Pat Benetar song - "Isn't
it a tough life!"
Ke Iki Beach Bugalow's had four hammocks out in front. We
did not spend that much time on them, but did enjoy some lazy discussions
Here is an excellent use of technology!
If you start to feel a little isolated, or, a little thristy, or,
perhaps both, head to Haleiwa (holly eva) to the
Free Surf Cafe
The camera we had was waterproof. This is one of the best
shot we got in the water.
Cornelius in front of no swimming signs. Why does
he look wet?
View of off the wall from above. The main part of O'ahu is a plateau
rising about 150 ft above sea level. This is taken from the edge of the
plateau. Some nice houses are along there.
There is a very cool early Hawai'i'n religious site on the plateau
above Waimea bay. Great views in many directions, especially if you
walk down to the very edge of the plateau.

Here I am in front of a Hawai'i'n statue.
The Hawaiin religion looks pretty interesting. How can you argue when the
ocean is the most powerful god?
me - unshaven - salty hair.
Time to go home.
Back home with our shirts.
Nice Gotcha shirts and T-Shirts from the Gotcha Pipeline Pro contest
that was going on the last two days we were there.
The mapmap of Oahu by James A. Bier was a pretty good map published
by the University of Hawai'i
Was that enough? Was the fantasy fulfilled? Stay tuned.
