Just Beachy


The retired mothers are used to sleeping in, but us working stiffs have internal clocks that naturally set to earlier so we were usually up before them.  The morning of day five in Kauai, we took an early walk around the hotel grounds.  MJ wanted to pick up breakfast and look for sea turtles.  This is their hang out spot.  We saw some our first day there, but no such luck that morning.

One of the first things we did when we got there is find beach rentals.  Our hotel didn't have it's own beach.  Shipwreck beach was right next door in front of the Hyatt, but it's not very swimmer friendly so we knew that we would be spending our beach days elsewhere.  I do not enjoy baking in the sun and I like to be comfortable while I lounge so we got chairs and umbrellas from Boss Frog's Snorkel Shop for the week.

We spent our first beach day at Poipu Beach because it was close and snorkel friendly.  Parking was really tight.  MJ did that magic trick that guys do where they drop off the ladies and then conjure up a parking space out of thin air.  There isn't a lot of sand and it was pretty crowded but we found a spot to set up.  As the day went on the waves started to creep closer and closer to us.  We weren't quite ready to leave so when that one wave came that made me jump and grab my stuff, we relocated to an area further back. 
I spent hours shopping for those darn bikini bottoms and will probably never wear them again.  When you go in the ocean and it looks like you have dropped a load it means you got the wrong size.  That may be acceptable when you are five years old, but not so much on a grown woman.



This has to be one of my favorite beaches ever.  The water is shallow and I saw no fish in my immediate area.  Plus, it has this really cool little sandbar that allows you to walk out to sea and sit in a patch of sand in the middle of the ocean while gentle waves wash over your lap.  You can see it in the background in this pic.  As the day went on this area filled up with water as well and there was probably no sand left on the beach after we left.

Looking back I realize that there weren't very many pictures from our beach.  I am always the main photographer.  If I don't take the picture or ask for a picture that often means it doesn't get taken and sometimes I just can't be bothered; but you get the idea.  Just another gorgeous day in Kauai.

Ah, I'm super jealous of you right now! I'd love to be laying on a beach somewhere right now - preferably with a cocktail in hand :)

Everytime I look at your Hawaii posts I always want to go! Looks like you guys had a great time!

That "drop a load" line made me laugh! And I hear you about always being the only photographer. As I was looking at my Myrtle Beach pictures I realized that I did not get any of me! If I don't ask, I don't get.

Beautiful shots!

Wow, such beautiful pics. I am always the photographer and I always make it a point to ask otherwise I won't make it in any pictures.

PS - I am loving your super flat tummy, I hope you tell us more about your diet and exercise regime again
