A friend of mine has a rad little dingy that can jet to all sorts of watery places. Like Ahu'olaka Island, also known as the Sandbar in Kane'ohe.
We dubbed it Sandbar Sunday.
So, if you don't already know, there is this massive sand pile in the middle of Kane'ohe bay [only accessible via water vehicle] and was notorious for some pretty rowdy parties during holidays. But after a series of unfortunate events the party problem has been eradicated. That's not really the way to enjoy it anyway, in my opinion. I prefer it quiet, serene, and with as little congestion as possible. The sandbar is a place of beauty, meant for enjoying the views, water, and peacefulness of being out in the middle of the bay. The tide wasn't quite as low as we would have liked but still just as enjoyable. It was a dream.
We spent the better half of the day lounging, drinking a couple brews, trolling through the water, and attempting to fish. Apparently you aren't supposed to bring bananas onto a fishing vessel. It's bad luck, fish don't like it. And guess who decided to bring a few apple bananas on the excursion? Oops. We thought we could break the curse. Failed. No fish for dinner. Just a note to all you non-savvy fishermen: no bananas on board.
Besides the whole banana bit, it was such a good day. I hope it becomes a tradition.
A delightful day at the Sandbar.
