Tuesday, we hiked up to the Makapuu lighthouse. The weather cooperated (overcast and windy), so it was only mildly miserable (and not completely grueling the way it was last time). It's whale season in Hawaii, and it was a great day to rest on the lookout points and watch a pod of whales at play.

And then the beaches were too windy all the way through Waimanalo (really, really windy and deserted), so we wound up in Kailua again. Already have photos of that.
On the way home, John's Store was open and the kids finally got their shave ice:
