This past week we found a new place near our house called "baby beach." Perfect, huh? It is a small spot that is protected from wave action. Very hip with the local keiki. There also happens to be some good snorkeling all along the reef break, which makes it hip with Nate, too. Following the swim Benji was indeed back to his normal self. We enjoyed pizza for dinner, pretended to eat play-doh cake for dessert, and then called it a day.
|Evidence of the trailhead. A horse is there in the adjacent field to greet you, too.|

|Cook Pines were brought to Hawaii by Captain Cook, and were planted on tropical islands to make the masts of sailing ships. Cook's first stop in Hawaii was Kauai.|
|Like Cook, we are intrepid explorers. With Blackberries and iPhones to take pics along the way.|

|Yes, that's the head (just the nose, really). |
Tag loves them, anyway.
