The weather forecast for the north was bad again. Mostly clouded and rain. So we stayed in the south again. The really great beaches here is Poipu, Kiahuna, and Gillin’s beach, but Gillin’s beach is not so good for swimming as the other. We went to Kiahuna again. And we were lucky. Shortly after we arrived so did a Hawaiian Monk Seal. And although we have been to Kiahuna so many times now we have never seen a Monk seal here.
Since there is no life guard at Kiahuna it took a while to put up rope to fence the seal from people. Actually it was not really necessary since most people care for the Monk seals and don’t want to disturb them. But there is always exceptions. Today some guy from east Europe tried to touch the seal. So I guess the ropes were needed anyway.
The Monk seal spend the whole day on the beach. Only moving to get a better position on the beach. When we left around 5 pm the seal was still sleeping in the sand. I think it doesn’t matter how many times you see wild (well, not crazy wild but you know what I mean) animals, they will always be fascinating to watch.
After the beach we went to the grocery store to buy dinner and breakfast. Also some wine and Sobe. Then home to relax and prepare dinner. Tonight it was herb chicken with salad.
