The Blow Holes

The entrance to Luperon Harbor can be tricky.  One reason is the rocky shoreline, especially to the east of the entrance.  One cool thing about that rocky shoreline though is the blow holes.  Natural holes in the limestone that create blow holes, especially when there is a northern swell, as we have had for the last couple of days.  It's a nice, easy hike out to the blow holes and we decided that with the north swell, it would be a good idea to see if the blow holes were blowing.  Our hiking party consisted of Rene and Stacy (Pipe Muh Bligh), Pat and Darnell (Island Dream), Pat and Lucy (Illusions) and myself (Storyville).  We were rewarded with some spectacular displays......
