Three Beaches...One Day

What a day...first we started off at the Valley of the Temples (more details in the following blog). Then Zac and I wanted to take the kids to the first beach he and I went to when we were out here two years ago looking for our house. It is a beautiful bay, very secluded but quite the drive from our house. Well we finally got there and took one look at the clouds coming over and the brown water and we turned around and left. (To explain the muddy water...sometimes when it rains the bays around here get pretty messy.) So we went back to a beach park we had passed along the way. It had this great view of China Man's hat - pictured to the left - We had our lunch at a picnic table then got the kids all dresse in their swim gear. Just as the kids ran into the water Zac noticed a small small sign posted a ways down the beach. It read, "No swimming, contaminated water." So you can only guess that we yanked the kids out as fast as possible. They were pretty dissapointed so we headed off to yet another beach - we have a lot here as we do live on an island...so we found ourselves at the beautiful Kailua Beach, had a great afternoon and even managed to get a bit of sun on Zac...he has been a bit sun deprived the last few months.

Can you see how happy they are to finally get to play in the water?

Andrew and Zac dug this great cave in the hill of sand...Anne turned it into a dog kennel.

Finally happy faces...

What no playgrounds!? I will just make a slide out of the sand then!
