Beach Day

June 18th, 2013 · 6 Comments · Family, Hawaii

Hello Friends!  My mom took some vacation days from work so she could hang out with us before we leave. Yesterday we drove around the windward side of the island and up to the North Shore. We hung out at the beach, enjoyed shave ice and snapped pictures. Our first stop was Laie Point.

We picked up some sandwiches from the super market and had our lunch on some picnic tables next to the beach. There were chickens gathering around the table looking for morsels.  We did not feed them.  After lunch we carried our goods down to the water. It was a LONG hot walk down the sand. We plopped our booties in sand and picked up some shells.

Jordan liked digging in the sand and being buried.

When we were done we hiked it back up the beach to the car. It really seemed like a long hot walk. hey, hot loose sand is a battle to walk through. note to self: get back into exercising more often. We drove further North to hit Aoki’s for shaved ice in Haleiwa and then headed back south. We stopped off at “Turtle Beach” to snap a few pictures. These turtles are so beautiful.

Stopped again to snap a few pictures of these windmills. They are SO much bigger than I thought they would be.

    Such beautiful blues…almost a turquoise sky and water! ♥
    I hate those windmills. There are SO many out west in the 48 and they just ruin the beauty of nature. Many of them don’t work right.
    Was that old building a church? Looks like there is a bell tower on the side!!!

    P.S. I LOVE that pic of you with the A hat on!

    Wonderful pictures and wonderful day out. Kind of bittersweet for you, huh? So glad that you guys have time to really say goodbye to everything!

    Thanks for the beautiful photos! I miss the shave ice at Haleiwa and the shrimp trucks and oh, the beautiful beaches. I was fortunate to have visited Ohau twice when my sister lived in Kailua. Best wishes on your next stop. You used to live in Alabama, right?
