13 May 2015 – After a late start to the morning to allow Giuliana to take an early nap we packed up a lunch and headed to Hanauma Bay for some world-class snorkeling.
The day was spent playing in the sand – and of course snorkeling. Isabella went out a few times with Sherrie and myself. I finally got Lucas to go out once with me right before we left and I was able to tow Aurelia around on the boogie board with a window for about 10 minutes to see some Convict Tangs in the shallows.
Isabella and I saw an octopus hiding in a hole along with many other types (Parrot Fish, Convict Tangs, Humuhumunukunukuapua, etc.). However, Isabella and I both spent a lot of time following a Coronetfish around. They are just beautiful creatures and so unusual – they look almost translucent in the water. However, no sightings of turtles this time.
We spent about 5 hours at the bay and left when the park was closing allowing me to get a shot of the bay at sunset with nobody on the beach 🙂
