beach, Coconut, Hawaii, Oahu, Papaya, Sugar Cane, Sunset Beach, swimming
19 May 2015 – We decided to spend most of our time on our last day in Hawaii swimming. I took the kids to the pool in the morning for an early swim and then we headed up to the North Shore for some lunch and beach time.
We had lunch at a Thai food truck near Giovanni’s shrimp truck surrounded by papaya trees.
Heading back south towards the better beaches we stopped for a quick treat – fresh coconut and sugar cane. First the kids were given the coconuts to drink and then we had them split to eat the meat. Isabella loved it but Aurelia and Lucas didn’t care for it too much. Giuliana enjoyed chewing on her sugar cane.
After our snack headed back to Sunset beach so the kids could play in the waves. The waves were perfect for the kids, except Aurelia who was sucked into the break a couple of times while trying to fetch water for her bucket.
After playing in the waves the kids tried to excavate the sand from the beach for a couple of hours. It was a great time and a really nice time on the beach.
After time at the beach we headed back to the house to enjoy an hour in the pool (helpful in cleaning off the beach). We also used the grills near the pool to enjoy hot dogs and sausages after swimming.
We will miss our time in Hawaii but really enjoyed the time we had with many memories of our adventures and time together.
