Hanauma Bay

Hanauma Bay was closed for a year during the pandemic and finally reopened recently. We were excited to see the fish return and to see if the coral had time to repair. The process for getting an entry was not easy though. Mama got up early and drove to the entrance to pick up a reservation.

When it was our time, we were allowed to enter, watched the short video, and headed down to the beach.

The fish were at knee level so Peanut could enjoy them from the shore. Meanwhile, Janie and Dada went out to explore.

We all had fun exploring and just hanging out in the beautiful fish sanctuary.

At lunch, there was a large bird hanging out in the restaurant. How funny.

For dinner, we went to our favorite katsu place and Peanut had a yummy kid’s bento meal.

On our way back, they hoisted the sail and turned off the motor so we could enjoy the sunset.

The kids were so tired afterward that they skipped dinner and went straight to bed.
