The sun shone today! And it was marvelous.

We were up bright and early this morning to make it to Hanauma Bay State Park before the crowds. The park opened at six, we were there not long after that. The parking lot usually fills up by seven, and then they don’t allow private vehicles, so we were dedicated.

What is the draw to the bay, you may ask? The incredible snorkeling.

The fish in this bag were very friendly, many came within feet of us. At one point, a sea turtle came into the bay and swam with the snorkelers.

It was unreal.

God makes beautiful things, we know that. But I never stopped to think about the beautiful things underwater that God made. The vibrant fish, textured coral, soft sand, clear ocean water. It was like an entirely new world down there.

And unfortunately, the underwater camera didn’t want to cooperate this morning.

Whomp whomp.

But that’s alright – an experience to be had without the distraction of a camera. You’ll just have to trust me that it was phenomenal.

At lunchtime, we packed up and came back to Waikiki. The sun was out in full force, and it felt like we went through buckets of sunscreen.

A relaxing afternoon baking in the sun and swimming in the ocean.

To finish the day, Paul and I went to Benihana for dinner – a first time for both of us. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, but it was so good! A perfect pre-anniversary dinner date.

Since we were on the go all day, I didn’t get any pictures taken, so I snapped this one before we went out for dinner. Our condo had an amazing view!
