Day 12 – Beach Bums

P1050434There is no other way to say this than…we were beach bums today.  We went to three different beaches off The Farrington Highway in Mokuleia.  We just randomly picked the first two.  For us though being a beach bum, means walking the beaches, we didn’t sit at all.

when at the beaches on this end, don’t forget to look away from the beach, the hills are beautiful

We were out for over two hours exploring the beaches, picturing taking, shell collecting and swimming.

After our return home, we dried off, started laundry and headed out for the mundane task of grocery shopping.  We did treat ourselves to a stop at the Paalaa Kai Bakery. Snow puffies were once again calling our name.

It was a good afternoon to sit in the shade, read and prep dinner.  After a dinner of roasted chicken and sides, I crashed.  All of a sudden a day of sun, hit me.  I barely made it to sunset.  Who knew being a beach bum could be so tiring?
