Living in Hawaii temporarily has showed me wonders of the little island of Oahu. The island may be small, but the adventures are never- ending. I will take you through a typical summer day in Hawaii. It always starts with a morning surf session, but beware of the reef below (I got scratched up a little). For breakfast we stop by our favorite new local truck, Banan, and pick up acai bowls in papayas.
Next step is to head out North Shore before all the traffic hits and luckily the drive up is quite scenic. Once we get to Pipeline (of course), I watch the monstrous waves that barrel so elegantly. I could watch the waves come and go forever; nature is so incredible. When our stomachs start to growl, we make our way to the famous Kahuku Farms and get an organic, fresh lunch.
The adventure does not stop here though, we leave north and make our way towards Hawaii Kai to jump off the wooden plank at Alan Davis. Sometimes our turtle friends like to join us too if we’re lucky. Once we’re all snorkeled out, we hurry and gather our belongings to make it to our sunset hike.
Deadman’s catwalk, located in the neighborhood of Hawaii Kai, has one of the most breathtaking views on this island. As we climb up, we made it just in time for the blue sky to fade to an array of colors from orange to pinks and our jaws slowly drop. In awe and amazement we stand and admire what life has given us until the sun goes down. By the end of the night our bodies are browned, we have accumulated more freckles, tan lines, and are covered in sand. I would say it was a pretty exceptional day, what do you think?
