We began our trip without any expectations. As soon as we drove out of Honolulu and into the mountains it began to rain. The rain was a welcoming shower for us from the gods of the land. We continued with our journey driving through pineapple farms until we descend into Haleiwa. This was farm country with the rich soil that agriculturalists made good in farming, from small plots to grand scale farming.
To reach Waimea Bay we took the Kamehameha Highway. The bay is on the north, west side of the highway (at the entrance point). We drove on until we arrived at the Wamea Valley Park. Waimea Bay is located in Haleiwa on the North Shore of O‘ahu in the Hawaiian Islands at the mouth of the Waimea River. Waimea Valley extends behind Waimea Bay. Waimea means "Red Water" in Hawaiian.
We drove west from Waimea Bay on along the coast until we hit the dirt road towards the end of the road. Behind is the Wai‘anae Mountain range. We stopped for a short photo session. We had one more stop to make at the only airstrip on North Shore.
