Waimea Bay

I thought I’d extend my summer a little bit and head to Hawaii for the week. My friend Jasper has been taking our crew around to a bunch of fun spots. You can only jump off this rock when the tide is high enough, so we waited until someone else went first (my feet still touched the bottom).

    I love Waimea Bay. Greta beach when the surf is down. I totally wanted to jump off that rock with a bunch of kids that were doing it but my wife told me it wasn’t a good idea… Now I regret not jumping.

    I jumped off that rock with my brother when I went traveling a few years ago and I’d totally forgotten about it until I saw your pic. Thanks for the flashback.
