My second day was Sunday and the local bus doesn't run this day. So again got on the bike and did some exploring on my own. First I headed down toward the beaches. There were so many to stop at and they were all so different than the beached I am used to. Very rocky for a little distance from shore breaking the waves leaving nice little pools to wade in.
My next stop was going to be a bit of a ride, an up hill excursion to Rainbow Falls. After finally getting there and totally exhausted this was it. Just a little trickle off the mountain. So I went on to explore on top of the falls...I was not disappointed.
I found up there some teenagers jumping off high cliffs but I wasn't so sure it was the safest thing to do. Then I saw a woman who told me that those were her kids and she was watching over them . Apparently they come here often and do this as a family thing. That was enough for me, I was hot from that bike ride...I went for a swim.
The girl in the blue swimsuit just jumped from where those kids are standing on very far upper right. I only dared jumping from where that person is standing on the middle left of the photo...well I climbed down as far as I could and jumped about like 8 feet (about half the distance that water fall is falling).
This picture below is the area of water that flows down into the waterfall shown 2 pictures above. I so wish I had a way to take pictures of the beauty that I witnessed going even farther past where you see me. Falls every where going into little pools with sun pouring down warming me (the water was freezing).

After that I wanted to check out the Boiling Pots water falls up the hill another mile or so. At first from the viewing point it was just..meh. Then I saw some other people way down there so I jumped the fence too.
The picture above is a close up of the picture above that. These pictures just don't do the these two fall justice. There were so high.
After the waterfalls I biked back to town...well, I never peddled once and rode the brakes for portions of the way. It was so fun gliding down the hill that I had to tell someone about it. So the poor girl I ordered ice cream from at the bottom of the hill was polite and humored my excitement. Any way, once back to town I stopped at a nice park with a geocache in it. There were tons of these types of trees around.
It was a great exploring day on the bike.
