And after about 35 minutes of steady upward hiking we came to the falls......
That is wet rock you see there with a little "trickle " of water running down it.
Should have called it the Manoa Trickle!!
I took this 6 second shutter speed shot at the bottom of the falls in the steady rain - this was the only place you could actually SEE any water on this falls.
Apparently the Big Island has some spectacular falls - perhaps another time.
All was not lost though. The hike in (and out) was refreshing (and a little slippery at times) and it was good exercise. We met some very interesting people from Canada - B.C. on the way up and hiked down with a young couple from Utah.
Back at the bottom we loaded the gear and headed on to Honolulu and Waikiki for lunch at a favorite spot - Dukes! Lunch was fabulous and wait until you see the pics of the dessert!! mmmm
I wasn't disappointed with the fun pictures on Waikiki beach either - the best place in the world to people watch. They come in all shapes and sizes and they aren't afraid to show it... some people should NOT wear a bikini!!!
Stay tuned for some fun candid photos!
