A Day at the Beach

Yesterday I went to the beach for the first time in about three months.

I know... I know... That's terrible considering I live on an island.  It's just that it's not as much fun if you have to go by yourself, and most of my friends around here had different schedules, had kids that they were taking here, there, and everywhere, or they were expecting babies soon, so it just didn't work out.  Anyhoo... I made friends with the beach yet again yesterday. Yay!

It was a little bit of an impromptu beach day because when Kent and I got back from our workouts, he just said, "Let's go to the beach!"  He wanted to drive around and try to find a beach we haven't been to.  (You should know that one of his favorite activities is "driving around," and one of my least favorite activities is "driving around."  I just like to know where I'm going and get there.)  After driving round and round, I got a little grumpy.  It seriously looked like we were circling the dumpy ghetto, so-- I confess-- I started whining until we just went to the nearest beach we'd been to before.  It happened to be at the Ko Olina resort.  (I know living here has spoiled me rotten when it comes to beaches, but the beaches on this side of the island don't do it for me.  They aren't as pretty to me, and they always feel ridiculously hot.)  We did finally get there, though, and hit the sand. :)  Aaand... It turned out to be a pretty good time.

I finally got my toes in the sand again...

Kent had to wear his "beach hat."  Lovely, isn't it? 

I just relaxed some and soaked up some warm sunshine.

When we finally had enough of the beach, we stopped for some shaved ice on the way home.
(I didn't get a photo when they first handed it to me because I just dug in!) 
Strawberry cream shaved ice is yummy!

All in all, it was a pretty dandy day.  Hope everyone else had a day just as wonderful!


  1. Ahhh...a day at the beach sounds wonderful! :) Looks like a perfect day!

  2. Oh that sounds wonderful. I'm so happy for you, Lindsay! Did you wear those cute new bikini bottoms or did you return them? LOL. Love all the pics!

  3. I've had alot of "days at the pool" this summer, but I have yet to have a "day at the beach" in over 3yrs. Needless to say I'm a little jealous. Hope your enjoying you Kent-time! Oh loved Mondays post about Kent being a clown, never would have!


I love getting your comments! Put a smile on my face and show me some love. :-)
