Wai Opae Tidal Pools
June 4, 2008
I got a call from a representative of the Homeowner's Association of "Vacationland", an area of
Kapoho where the Wai Opae Tidal Pools are located.  There's a road that runs right along the
coast that is subject to erosion from high tides and they wanted to look into repairing.  As a
step in the process, the official shoreline as to be determined which is defined as the highest
point of the high tide.  So on this day we met with a representative of the University of Hawaii
who would make this determination.  Also along for the ride were myself, as the engineer, a
couple of guys from a surveying company to mark the high tide locations, some people from
the Planning Board, and some of the interested homeowners.  I arrived around 2:00 and
waited around for everyone else to show up.  Gradually, the various people came.  We all
walked around and talked and pointed at things while we waited for high tide, around 5:00.

The tide's starting to do down.  I
thought this was a pretty shot.
