We also got to see three seals as they floated in the water below us. It was truly an amazing place, one of those unknown gems we happened to find. There was a lot for sale at the top of the cliffs. We jokingly studied the realty sign. What a bargain at only $3,475,000.00 for the lot. What are we waiting for?
After a quick lunch and another stop at Kailua Beach, we headed out to Goat Island. Mara had been wanting to visit this beach the entire time we've been here. The draw is the island just 720 feet offshore. The guidebook said it was possible to swim/walk out to the island, and our adventurers could not wait to try.
This beach is on the North Shore, so the surf was pretty strong here . Our brave ones pushed on through and explored the island, which is mostly a bird sanctuary, for a while. When they returned it was time to head back to Honolulu and start packing up our belongings.
We will be checking out in the morning and spending the day doing anything we've missed before our flight out tomorrow night. I have a feeling we'll be in some restaurant around 1:45 p.m. trying to catch a bit of some college football game. Go Dawgs!
