Hanauma Bay

"When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?

You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands;

you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air,and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! " from Psalm 8

We went to Hanauma Bay for our last hurrah before heading back to school. It was fun to be able to show our local identification and not have to pay the tourist entrance fees. It was amazing to swim right next to such beautiful fish. Because it is a protected area, the fish have no fear of man. The water was a bit chilly, so Laura stayed in the sun and in the shade soaking in a good mystery. I agreed with her on the chilly water verdict, going out once but happy to wait until the spring for the water to warm up. The purple areas in the water are all coral reefs; the fish swim in and out showing off their colors without a hint of fear.
