Sightseeing & Activities
Day 2 RV-ing: Today we seek out a specialist to get a tow bar and InvisiBrake® by Roadmaster installed for our Gulfstream Montaj 29H to Mini Cooper. They’ll need our vehicles all day. How to pass the time? A day at San Diego Safari Park with Billy Jr. where we really enjoy the Ring-tailed Lemur Walk and Pygmy Falcon encounter.
“Waimea Valley was carved by rain and wind from the flank of the Ko‘olau Mountain range some two million years ago. With its range of habitats stretching from the dry, salty sea shore to the cool, misty uplands, Waimea Valley became home to a vast array of ferns, flowering plants, invertebrates, birds, stream life, and Hawaii’s only land mammal, the hoary bat.” – WaimeaValley.net
Today, I fell in Love with the Fennec Fox at the Honolulu Zoo!!! “The fennec fox is the smallest of all foxes. The prey it hunts in the evening provide its moisture that it needs no drinking water at all! The fennec is a true ‘desert fox.’ Its large ears also serves to dissipate heat.” -Honolulu Zoo

Pillbox (a.k.a, Ka’iwa Ridge Trail) is considered an easy hike and is located in Lanikai, Oahu. I would say it’s easy because it’s only a 0.7mi. trail but with an intermediate start and return where the trail is the most steep. There are a few parking spots on the street in front of Mid Pacific County Club. Walk up the road and you’ll see it stems off from Kaelepulu Dr. to find the trail head.

I wasn’t born in 1965 when Thunderball – the 4th spy film in the James Bond series starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent – came out in the theaters showing him escaping in a jetpack. Skip forward to present day, now there’s a water amusement jetpack. Insane! Words to describe a Jet Pack lesson = Major Rush!
Near the end of March, it’s still humpback whale season in Waikiki.
