I was bad today with taking photos, and didn't really take any of Hank or me. I'm hoping to be better tomorrow, we just spend so much time in the water (ocean or pool) and I obviously don't bring my camera down there. So, this update is all "things" and our pretty surroundings for the most part. Today was another great day though, we woke up at 6:30am and went on a 5-mile walk. I love that Hank loves to workout with me, and we always have a blast talking while we walk or run. Afterward we enjoyed some breakfast on the lower lanai. I had Kashi Go Lean Crunch with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and blueberries, truly delicious! After breakfast we spent hours and hours floating around in the ocean, and Hank boogie-boarded for awhile. At one point I backed up and almost ran straight into a huge sea turtle that decided to take a swim with us. I've seen sea turtles before, but never actually swam with one, and it was so neat to see one so incredibly close. Beautiful. It was the most perfect morning- the water here is super clear and the white sand feels like velvet on your feet. We spent some time just sitting in the sand and letting the ocean lap up at our legs and it was really relaxing and pretty entertaining to watch all the young local boys doing crazy things in the water with their boards. We came home exhausted and enjoyed a snack before we headed out to pick up some things at the market. When we got home we napped for a bit and then spent more time in the water, but this time in the pool. Our pool is immediately over the ocean and it's really pretty to just relax and swim around when you want a little change from the beach. For dinner we decided to try a veg-friendly Vietnamese place we found online and it was good. I'm glad we found a quick, cheap and pretty healthy stop for our future visits. After we decided to stop by Jameson's and bring home their AMAZING lemon chiffon-macadamia nut crust pie and a slice of cheesecake for dessert on the lanai. Heaven. Winding down now, and heading to bed in a bit so we can get ready for an early morning of swimming. Goodnight!
the gardens at the house are so pretty, I can't get enough of Hawaiian flowers
such a great backyard, our little ones will have so much fun running around here in the future!
heading out to get some frozen yogurt at Kona Wave
SO NERDY. We bought these water shoes a few years ago and wear them whenever we go exploring in the water/rocks wherever our vacations take us, and they're so useful. Incredibly dorky, but useful. Useful wins! haha.
on the point
the only kind of beer Hank drinks! ;)
Vietnamese for dinner- lemongrass tofu and delicious wonton soup
our takeout dessert. I always have to get the lemon pie! mmm
