Wow! Two amazing things in one day!
So I met my friend at Baby Beach this morning, but I didn’t go swimming, I just had fun taking pictures! The water was so crystal clear and serene.
There were plenty of people on the beach but I found a small little cove that I wrote these words…
So as I went about my stressful day…I was anticipating my friend’s birthday beach evening. We had fun surfing, even though we got caught in some sets that were head high at least. It makes you realize how precious life is. It’s probably the 100th time I’ve almost died at Ho’okipa and her first. We made it and we are totally fine. We ate a bit and then took pictures….of our toes!
So then it started to get dark…and we knew what that meant. Turtles! We were careful not to get too close, that’s why the pictures are a bit blurry. They crept up on the beach and started to sleep.
On a side note, Thanksgiving is coming! Woop woop! Time for stuffing yourself with turkey and pumkin pie.
Now, this is a little weird cause usually people ask, “What is your favorite thanksgiving food?” or something like that. Well, I’m gonna ask…What is your least favorite part of the thanksgiving meal?
My least favorite would have to be, the cranberry sauce with real cranberries. I don’t like crunching on things when I am trying to enjoy the jello substance.
Don’t forget to comment and give your answer!

Did anyone drive by (or surf) Ho’okipa on Thursday? It was so beautiful!
These are some pictures I took from the road. Don’t worry I wasn’t driving. 😉 Sorry, some are a bit blurry.
The water at Ho’okipa (Ho-oh-key-pah) is usually choppy and not so blue. Mostly choppy cause of the wind. Windsurfers love those conditions but today, it was pure surfing conditions. The parking lot at Ho’okipa Beach Park was packed and there were so many people in the water!
I went surfing later in the day, it was still pretty good…but the Honu (ho-new; sea turtles) were kinda scaring me, they kept popping up out of nowhere and I was afraid I would run over one!
I always love Ho’okipa, but that day especially. Probably has something to do with me being a surfer/boogie boarder. Yeah, one of these days I will get someone to take a picture of me surfing.
I took these pictures at 9:30 am. I bet people skipped out on work just to enjoy this…
Aloha Nui Loa!
