The term ‘Big Five’ refers to five of Africa’s greatest wild animals – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Before humankind destroys their home or hunt them down to total extinction, we want to see these amazing creatures up close and personal.
An August 2013 small surf adventure in Oahu, Hawaii. Friends Chris and Terence are with us as we all hitch a ride with the Maita’i Catamaran. Special thanks to Captain Ian. We jump overboard and pick a break to paddle to.
“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
What is the most spontaneous, last minute adventure you’ve ever taken? After a planned drive for breakfast at Sweet Home Waimanalo, we discussed what else we should do today. I had mentioned hiking Mariner’s Ridge Trail as other friends have done the hike and although we only wore our flip flops, we decide to go for it!
