Day 5-Oahu-Ko Olina Lagoon#4

Featured image from our neighborhood: Mariella Smith

I went to get a snorkel in after getting skunked out of Hanauma Bay Preserve, twice. Went to Disney’s version of Oahu at Ko Olina. Manicured and ready for mainlanders. They had built 4 or 5 man made place to snorkel from the beach with breakwaters. The private place had to open these to the public after some complaint. It was busy but the water was still kind of moving at the openings. A minute in the water I found some one’s wedding ring. The camera giving me some fits again but got some pics for later. Moorish Idol!

I was not skunked and there were some other fish that I had never seen quite colored that way. Can’t wait to get to Maui and snorkel. $16 bacon and bagel with all the works and back to the room to check up on the commish. She had found the free store.

I went to see the Byodo-In Temple. Buddhist a couple of miles from where we are. It’s a re-creation but, is quite impressive.

Looked like feeding the tarpon at Robbie’s in Islamorada, Florida on Lower Matecumbe Key.

The temple was in a huge cemetery.

Off tomorrow to Maui and the road to Hana and staying 2 nights. Went waaay to fast. Peace out Tres
