The rugged Ka Iwi Coast on the east side of Oahu is a great place to wander. Lots of tidepools and little surprises.
Oahu’s last active lava flow met the sea here many moons ago, and the beach is now a fascinating mix of coral and lava.
A few nice shells are scattered here and there.
The line on this fish’s back makes it look like he’s looking up and frowning.
Lots of little reef fish in the pools.
Some of the fish have very good camouflage. Look closely and you will see the fish in the center below.
It’s always nice to see the Coast Guard on the job.
The empty shell of a large crab still stands guard too.
Koko Crater looms in the background.
This old engine block has seen better days. It’s almost like an archeological find. But not quite. Just another reminder of the modern world.
