This week over break I went to Oahu, Hawaii. We spent a few amazing days on the North Shore where we got to go to beaches like Pipeline and watch the surfers on the powerful waves. The water was a nice 80 degrees, so many of the surfers didn’t need to wear wetsuits. Being that it was Pipeline, they were all very good and caught some impressive rides. There were lots of people that came to watch the surfers do their thing. Living in Hawaii would be a dream, and to be able to experience the environment everyday must be incredible. If you are every in Oahu, definitely visit the North Shore and the beaches along the coast such as Pipeline, Waimea Bay, and Sharks Cove.
Thousand Steps has so many different things that you can enjoy. It is located in the beautiful Laguna Beach. Although the name implies that there are 1000 steps, you only have to go down about 230 stairs to get there. There are caves, secret pools, great waves, rocks to climb, and adventures to go on. The caves and secret pools are only accessible at certain times. When the tide is high, no one is allowed to attempt to climb the rocks to get over to them. However, if the tides are low, it is a beautiful place to explore. Most of the time there is a great shore break that allows for body surfers to get some great pictures. Also, if you want to explore down the beach, you can climb on and through some rocks to get to other little beaches in Laguna. It is a lot of fun to spend the day in Laguna going from beach to beach on the trolley and spending the day at Thousand Steps.
