Summer Memories: Hawaii

Back in September we took a really lovely trip to Oahu with some dear friends. I'm excited to share some of my favorite pictures with you! 

We stayed for the first three nights in a cabin by the beach on the east side of Oahu near Kailua.

Blue ocean meets blue sky.

Watching the sunrise. We found that our sleep schedule was influenced by the sun--early to bed and early to rise! There was no point in sleeping when you could be out enjoying the beach, and there was less to do when the sun set. 

A classic Hawaiian rainbow.

Our little cottage!

Mom, Christina, and I took a hike in the forest.

We got high enough to have a pretty good view.

 One morning we got up early to snorkel at Hanauma Bay. It was beautiful and very fun. We got to see quite a few fish! 

The beach at Hanauma Bay seems to be over-run with pigeons.

 The mostly empty beach just after sunrise.

By the time we left, the beach was getting quite full, and there was a long line of people waiting to enter the grounds.

It's so easy to see the coral from above, not so easy from the water's edge.

I always love driving up into the mountains and going through the tunnels on H3.

We spent out last night in Honolulu.

Watching the sunset from our hotel on the last night. So beautiful!
