Island of Oahu

Waimea Falls Park
Tuesday, October 10th, 2000

Oahu is known as the gathering place. Today the gathering is at Waimea Falls Park for lunch and a show of dancing and diving.

The show included cliff divers. See them? Just missed them. They made that pair of splashes in the picture at left above. They did climb the cliffs beside the falls and make impressive dives.

The word waimea (wy-ah-may-ah) means red. You'll find that name everywhere on the islands. Although we didn't see much red about this valley, they assured us that these falls turn red after a big rain washes soil off the surrounding hillsides.
