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.
