Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Thursday, February 01, 2007


Take a look at this. You might not be able to tell all that well, but these so called "steps" were really steep. This is little sis and nephew trying to navigate their way down/up the Trail to the Blowhole!. Actually the "fake blowhole". Seems that oldest sis/ hubby kind of remembered the way to the blowhole and took us thru a neighborhood of homes that according to the nice pool man that we asked, was the location of the blowhole. Does this look like a one of only 3 blowholes in the world kind of trail? Does it look like hundreds...nay thousands of people partake in this natural wonder? HELL NO! Now imagine, 18 people, ranging from 5 - 70 trying to get down this steel trail. We were like a human ladder with some of us scooting down on our ass, while others, like my poor daughter, slamming down 1/2 the way against a fence. This little trail was smack dab in the middle of a well to do neighborhood and in between 2 peopls homes. Don't quite think that this was the right place. That statement was confirmed when we heard my older sis's 2 kids say , "Stop...there's a steep drop off and Andy looks as though he has to climb down some kind of cable to get down".....yep, definately wrong place. The two nephews made it along with hubby, not quite sure who else made it.

This is the two newphews who finally made it down to ....wait for it......The Spitting Cave! Not no fucking blowhole for all to see and gaze at...it was supposedly some fucked up spitting cave!! We risked life and limb and not to mention, someone falling off into the ocean and rocks to their deaths for some cave that when the water goes into the cave, it sprays out and looks as if it's spitting. Now that was hilarious. Poor sis felt so bad, she just imagined someone falling or getting hurt and all because of the directions. Oh man we all had a laugh on that one.
Wouldn't you know after we all got up out of there, we got back in the car to head towards Hanama Bay and 1 1/2 miles down the road a huge opened up parking lot and
tourist site set up was in front of us. BING! Blowhole !!

I've been to the Blowhole, it was pretty cool but there were tons of people there.

I'm glad everyone survived the Spitting Hellhole Cave!

omg omg omg OMG!!! I can not believe that picture! This is the first time I have seen what it actually looked like. My you know what hurts! OMG! The pic that Lou had was NOTHING like the one of the boys on that cliff. I never made it past the hairpin turn so I never really saw where they went. Now I feel even worse! I have to get up and walk around, my chest is getting tight from just looking at that picture.
