for spring break, i went to hawaii to see my beautiful best friend amy hanson.
she introduced me to the wonderful world that is laie. we rode the bus, maybe a few too many times, enjoyed loads of unhealthy food, most of which was purchased at the lovely tamuras, biked on over to the school, and most importantly surfed and surfed and surfed. it was a wonderful week and regardless of the 11 hour plane ride, i would go back in a heartbeat.
we went to a surf competition. pretty cool.
and saw a homeless man who lives on the beach and searches for sea shells with his teddy bears. not such a bad life.
saw the temple in laie. gorgeous.
amy's roommate, kelsey, and i successfully opened up a coconut. mind you it took us about an hour, all of our strength, and we may or may not have broken a wooden spoon in the process.
i learned how to surf and went whenever we could. one time we even saw a sea turtle while paddling through the ocean. that experience literally made my life.
thank you so much miss amo. i cannot wait to go back next year!
