Hawaii (part 2)

Got up and watched the sunrise. Drove up the coast with my love. Got fresh smoothies. Picked up Steve and Helene from the trail and heard about their crazy day of backpacking. Went to Anini Beach. Snorkeled. Thought I was going to scrape belly on the rocks. Checked out the local Hawaiian thrift shops. BBQ'd burgers for dinner. Watched Steve chomp through watermelon seeds. Talked about kids and life. Chopped open a coconut.

driftwood. if only I could've brought some home


it was 6am- this is the best we could do

the people who took this photo said "wow - this is an incredible shot" I'm not sure we're looking at the same photos...

22 week bump headed to the beach

Hanalei in the distance

empty like most beaches

crazy one lane bridge times two

Searched for Steve's sunglasses. Drove up to the Northern Coast. Shopped in the town of Hanalei. Stopped at the Tropical Taco for fish tacos and fish and chips. I ate ono fish and actually liked it. Tunnels Beach. Most beautiful beach yet. More snorkeling. Lots of sunshine, book reading and seashells. Hanalei Beach. Best swimming beach. Boogie boarding. Dogs on the beach. Dressing in the car. Luau. Hula dancers. Fire show. Amazing food - pork and coconut cake especially. Stopped off for some star gazing.
