I think one of the coolest things about living in Hawaii is being able to see big waves and what's more impressive than seeing the waves is hearing them.
One of the new things Zach and I have been doing is volunteering as Honu Guardians with Malama na Honu on the north shore. Basically we educate visitors about sea turtles.
The turtles come ashore to bask on the sand and Honu Guardians are responsible for roping off the turtles so visitors do not disturb them.
We have enjoyed learning about sea turtles and spending more time at the north shore.
Yesterday we were scheduled to watch the beach but due to the high surf that rolled in earlier this week the beach was closed.
So we drove down the road to Pipeline to watch the big waves.
We sat there for over 2 hours watching the waves and the brave surfers.
The water was so powerful yesterday like nothing we have seen before, at one point there were 4 sets of waves rolling in at the same time.
Seeing waves over 20 feet high is truly an amazing experience.
