My Hawaii Vacation

This post is way overdue, but I came back to a pile of work and have just now caught up two weeks after getting back. Hawaii was NOT at all what I had been hoping for. I got sick on the plane ride over. Really sick. A fever, and swollen throat set in for the first 5 days of my seven day vacation. So I did not get to go surfing every day, go running along the Ala Wai Canal, cliff jump or do a ton of hiking like I had originally planned. So every morning I popped Motrin and Dayquil and lay on the beach or my floaty tube, not my idea of the perfect vacation but what is a girl to do?  The last two days I felt better so I got to go surfing with my sister, but the waves in Waikiki are a joke and it is soooo crammed full of people, you are lucky if you get two good waves.

I wouldn’t stay in Waikiki again. While it was really convenient to not need a rental car and to have everything we need within walking distance, I found it crowded and it just didn’t feel like home like the North Shore does. Here are a few shots from my trip.

All that dieting and exercise for nothing… ick!

Why did my sister get the hot body genes?

I taught my sister Leilani how to surf

She caught on really fast!

If only I could have spent every day like this!
