beach days

body surfin'
pure joy :)

The best part of our trip was parking my beach bum in the sand and enjoying the ocean! I relaxed while Eric got beat up by the waves :) But he enjoyed every second of it!
My client lent me her book that held the secrets of Maui and we found an amazing beach that the locals hangout on. (So bummed I can't remember the name of the beach. But it was in Wailea.) The beach was great, the waves were perfect, and there was awesome snorkeling! We saw more sea turtles. What an amazing experience!
We also spent a day at Big Beach, the last undeveloped beach in Maui. The sand is supposedly the best sand on the island. The waves were much bigger here so I didn't spend much time in the ocean but the boys enjoyed their boogie boarding :) Oh, we saw sea turtles at this beach, too!!


I am convinced that life would be much easier if I lived near the beach ;) ha ha! I love it!
