Splash!

Instead of going to the beach this weekend, I decided we should try something else Hawaiian.

A hike to a waterfall was in order, so off we went into the woods, and over Maunawili stream (three or four times).

We tried (not always successfully) not to trip on all the tangled roots along the trail.

We followed these guys who looked like they were ready for a swim.

They beat us to the Falls and were already jumping, not only off the eight foot rock to the left of the falls, but off a ledge 20 feet up and to the right, just out of the picture.

An hour later the small pool was filled and the jumps became flips and gainers. That’s Zavi and I next in line above the splash. We did two jumps together and Katja and I did one. I was proud of the kids’ bravery until Zavi reminded me that he had jumped off the three meter diving board in swim club many times over the last year. They were still thrilled enough to want to do this every weekend though.
