We went to Cafe Pesto for lunch and I ordered a blended blue margarita and as much as I prefer it on the rocks, I thought the blended version was much better suited for the early afternoon.


I ordered a Chicken & Wild Mushroom Rissoto and it was pretty delicious! We ordered the calamari for a starter and it is such a larger portion than what we get here in Canada. I approve!

Afterwards we headed toward the waterfalls, but on the way we took a scenic route that led to Onomea Trail which had a spectacular view of a small pebbled/rocky cove. And down by that small beach, I almost got swept away by some waves and riptides. GOOD TIMES!

Also, because I couldn’t get a really good sunset time-lapse and photos a couple days ago I was DETERMINED to get ALL MY SHOTS THIS TIME AROUND. I also had a chat with an older couple there that told me about “the green flash” that happens as soon as you see the top of the sun sink into the water. I didn’t see anything, but apparently the gentleman next to me did on his camera. I looked at all my footage and witnessed NOTHING 🙁

They say it doesn’t happen all the time, or most people miss it because it happens so quickly. Now every time I do a timelapse or watch the sunset THAT’S ALL I WILL BE WATCHING FOR.
