Bang goes the New Year

52 Weeks of Awesome - Week 1

We decided to take a hike and climbed up to the Makapu'u Lighthouse for some potential whale spotting.

First we had to wait an the trail head and play kazoos until Daddy caught up from parking the car...

The first part of the trail takes you around the over look where you can see the head of the lizard that makes up Hanauma Bay as well as Pele's Chair.

I was expecting to come out of the trail at the base of the light house, but you actually come out above, looking down at it...

Jimmy didn't want to have his pictures taken today...

It was a great hike for all those involved. We saw some splashing evidence of whales at play, but no actual whales, however, from the lookout above the lighthouse we were able to look down upon a pod of Spinner dolphins cruising around!

Joey fell asleep on Daddy's head on the way back down!

You may also know that I started working and working out at Curves again. I am determined to reach my goal this year and would love to surprise Jeff when he returns from his long deployment with a smaller wife (me)!
So the Hula Girl has returned... this ticker started last year, so in 2009 I lost and kept off almost 20 pounds with no real conscious effort. I haven't lost weight in the first month at curves, but I lost 8 1/2 inches! I Think my muscles were just raring to to this year! Yea Me!
