Freddie bear took a trip to the leeward side of the island this weekend. The island is only 26 miles wide but since he got stuck in traffic on the Farrington highway he could have made it from Edmonton to Red Deer in that amount of time. Here is Fred is Fred standing on a mound of Sand looking at the surfers on Makaha beach. To see more pics of the surf at that beach check our travel gallery. But this is Fred's gallery and he can only stare in envy at the surfers since the surf was pretty high and he is only a begginer at the sport. The waves were not nearly as high as they get a little later on in the year when they hold World Class surfing conditions. When the surf gets higher than that they hold an Eddie would go or and Eddie Aikau (pronounced I Koa. He will tell you more about that when he sees one. Or google Eddie Aikau to learn why Freddie is so fascinated by him.
Here you can see how many surfers were in the water.
But only one or too of them are up. Freddie knows he is outclassed so he is staying safe.
So after concedeing that he couldn't possibly boogie board or surf those waves our intrepid little bear decided that the Kaneana Cave would be a good stop. Here he is checking out the walls of the cave
And the floor
Freddie thinks thes lava walls are much different from the caves back home.
The brave little bear gets up high to have a good look around
Then he trudges to the back to explore.
Fred is kinda cross that somebody saw fit to grafitti a sacred cave. If he catches them there will be trouble.
Fred is just wondering if there are bats in this cave?
Freddie is takes a look further back in this cave but not all the way back, cause he didn't have his flashlight with him, before heading back to his side of the island.
