So when you go to Hawaii, (or at least when I go to Hawaii) I'm all about the beaches, the surf, the ocean, and the sunset. Tuesday was BEACH DAY, Baby. We were determined to find one of the beaches we had read about, the problem was, you had to walk about 2 miles through lava rock and an extremely rough road to get to the slice of paradise I had read and longed about.
Tuesday morning: get in rented Altima. John and Bill in front.
"Just hoping that the tide doesn't hit my chair..."
(The Zack Brown Band totally ROCKS.)
Gorgeous beach with clear, light blue water that was so salty it literally made your nose run like a momma who had injected saline into her baby's stuffy nose to break up the congestion.
(Am I the only momma who ever did that???)
We were full and happy with our Costco spinach salads, yummy baguette, diet Cokes all around, and shrimp cocktails. Probably my most favorite meal of the trip!
Then it came.
That long awaited for-haven't seen it since Mexico 8 years ago-nostalgic feeling of a beach
John and Stefanie enjoyed it too so I took their picture like the creepy stalker that I am when I have a camera!
Some of the locals (or "natives" as I called them...) enjoying the sunset before acting all crazy again by running into the surf from the shore, with their boogey boards, to catch a wave and surf it in or skim the wave in. They were nuts!
Just another day in paradise!
