Just some pictures we took at the beach. At this particular beach, turtles will sometimes (often?) come up onto the sand. We waited awhile hoping to see them but they seemed pretty content staying in the water near shore. Maybe next time!
If you look closely at the first picture, you can see some smoke in the background. We were driving near the area we used to live and saw a massive amount of smoke. We got really worried because it was coming from the direction of Haleiwa, which is an old historical town that could easily burn down fast if the fire got out of control. We happen to love Haleiwa, as do many others, including the tourists, and it would have been a real loss to the community and a huge financial burden to many if the fire destroyed it. Luckily it was just a brush fire and the firefighters were able to get it under control before it spread. If you want to see some pictures of the incident, feel free to visit North Shore Notes.
We were lucky enough to have my mom visiting with us for 10 days so she could meet the baby and help out. I miss her like crazy already. I wish I could convince her and my dad to move to Hawaii. But of course it's a no go. Anyways, she's beautiful isn't she? Do you think we look alike? Because we get that a lot.
