Back in 2002 we went on a two week trip to Hawaii. Hawaii was not my first choice of locations but since Michelle has indulged my dragging her to many out of the way locations on trips I decided to surprise with a trip to somewhere that she wanted to go. I was pleasantly surprised. There was a good amount of interesting wildlife, since many of the species had adapted over centuries of exclusion. I also had a blast searching the tide pools for interesting creatures and the scenery, like the view above, was incredible.
