Day 33 – Connected to the Ocean

I wish I could start every morning of our life like we did today.  Wake up, savor a fine cup of coffee, eat fresh fruit, locally grown and then take an hour and half stroll on the beach.

We entered at Cannons Beach and strolled almost to Ke’e Beach.  What a morning to walk, sun and tide were both out. Simply a beautiful morning with creatures of the ocean to watch.

crabs, snails and limpets oh my

Monk Seal shhh taking a snooze

After our private experience with the monk seal, we continued on until we were able to see the Napali coast in all her beauty.

At this point we turned around and headed back.  It was a relaxing way to start the day.

By the time we landed at home, it was time to find lunch.  We enjoyed The Jailhouse Pub the first week were here, so we decided to have another lunch there our last week.  We drove the 50 minutes and once again had an enjoyable lunch.  Of course the waitress and the Guinness beer added to a fun lunch experience.

We then hoped to have a dessert at Icing on the Cake in Kapaa, but it is closed for renovations until August 16th.  We were broken heartened. Oh well, hit up the bakery next door.  We picked up a little mango french toast thingie to eat at our outing tonight and I got an iced mocha to go.  Ok it really wasn’t a true iced mocha, a shot of espresso with a little milk and lots of chocolate, to die for!!

At home we recovered from the beach walk and lunch. Quickly 6:30 came and we packed up snacks and headed out to Waipa for the Hawaii Ocean Film Fest featuring tributes to Andy Iron and our Cultural Connections to the Sea.

The films were great. We had a lot of fun and to help set the mood the moon came out to play.

We started the day at the sea and ended the day with films about the ocean. Not a  bad day, I say.
