hawaii day 2

saturday, may 20... this was one of my most fav days! poipu and polihale beaches...

welcome to poipu beach! 

i love this pic of nate (and his sweet tat!)

this beach was beautiful... there's just something about palm trees/coconut trees that really make the beach that much prettier! total paradise! :)

why yes, this is a hawaiian monk seal. 
it is endangered... (and it's alive here... just being lazy!)
GASP- a hawaiian monkseal. hahaha. this pic cracks me up!!!

the snorkeling side of poipu... we couldn't hang with loni and jake, but we did go out a little ways and snorkel. tons of pretty fish... 

 the chics and their snorkeling gear!

i have to be honest and say loni took these underwater pics... she and jake went out further than nate and i, and they got to swim with this awesome sea turtle. at least she shared the pic with me! ;)

after working up an appetite at poipu, we went to tropical burgers to eat... 
and oh my, it was delish!!!
i ordered the kalbi pineapple bacon burger... yum! wish i had one for lunch right now! :)

and what's a trip to the mall without crazy sun visors... with HAIR!?! i LOVE this pic and think it's hilarious! jake's hair was actually kinda long and messy, so this could have passed for his real deal. nate, on the other hand, has shaved his head for the past 12 years! i've never known him with hair, so this really made me laugh! (for the record, during the trip he decided he would grow his hair out. ummm it lasted 2.5 weeks and he could no longer stand the fuzzy stage. he said he's not meant to have hair, and shaved it again last nite!) :)
i think it's so cute when old guys with gray hair or NO HAIR wear these visors with spikey gray hair!! i will so be buying my dad one soon! ;)) b/c you are the cooooolest poppi!

after shopping, we ran home and packed up the truck... cooler, tent, surfboard, boogie boards... then picked up subway, and headed to the coolest beach ever... polihale beach! you gotta follow a little dirt road, let some air out of your tires, and then you are good to go. you can drive your truck up on the beach!!! omg it was so cool! we took "junk truck" and had a blast! in fact, i think she earned a new name that trip. she got us there and back safely! ;)


jake surfed... we watched! :)


mountains on one side, ocean on the other. i mean, how much better could it get?!?

awwww... J <3 N 2012 ;))

 coolest part of this beach... we went at sunset. and oh my word. probably the absolute most gorgeous sunset i've ever witnessed!!!

nate and i holding the sun in our hands!

loni and jake givin the shocka! :)

who are these CRAZYYY ninja's? oh yeah, loni and me!! this pic is CLASSIC!!!!

this is real ya'll... no photoshopping at all!! no edits. just breathtaking!!

awwww <3

 i'm not the best photographer ever, but i do try sometimes! i kinda love this shot below, right up on the sand, then the waves, then the sun setting. i think it's pretty cool!

aloha polihale! i will DEF be visiting this beach again, you can count on that!

see why it was my fav? everything about it was awesome. and did i mention, we pretty much had the whole beach to OURSELVES!?!?! ahhhhh... love love love it!
