Last weekend I went to Kualoa Beach Park with two of my dear friends, and we took a whole mess of kids with us :)

The gaggle, minus two grown-ups and two babies.

The big girls explored the beach, hunting for shells and other treasures, while the little ones had a great time splashing in the water.  It was such a beautiful day - warm sunshine and a perfectly calm sea.  We played, we ate a picnic dinner, we played some more. 

I love this photo of the little ones - it looks like they are all peering out at Chinaman's Hat Island, pondering something really important (they were probably just watching the pigeons!).

 My beautiful girl, getting in one last swim as the sun goes down.

 What a fun afternoon - sure hope we get to do it again soon!


  1. Those pictures just look like perfection. I'm sure you know how blessed you are to live there. When I was a kid I visited Hawaii(1968) and always wanted to live there. But, that wasn't my destiny. So now I live in my hometown on the East Coast and will be happy to look at your pictures. Thanks for sharing where you live and this journey to your daughter.

  2. Yes, we do feel very blessed to live here! I love the sun and the ocean, so being here makes me happy. Thanks for supporting us!

  3. Oh and Rosedel, if you really like looking at photos of Hawaii you might like my other blog:

    I haven't kept up with it much lately but hope to start posting more soon!

    1. I just spent an hour looking at your pictures. Oh my, they make me homesick for a place that's not my home, if that makes sense. :) You have a picture of a bay or cove that I swear used to be a set on Magnum P.I. And the sea turtles are amazing. They just swim up and hang out with you???? Just fun and beauty all around.

  4. Yes that is Pa Honu pond (not a pond, but a walled off part of the sea), which is directly in front of the house that they used to film part of Magnum P.I. in - I think they used to show Pa Honu pond in the opening credits! Yes, the sea turtles hang around the shoreline eating algae in the summer and are not afraid of people at all. So glad you enjoyed the pics - at least you can get your Hawaii fix that way :)
