Just when I thought this island couldn't get any better, it did today. I got up this morning with the intention of doing three things. I wanted to go to the Farmer's Market, I wanted a Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks, and I wanted to see the big waves along the North Shore. Well, the waves were kind of lame today, not so big. I hear a swell is coming though and I have high hopes for Tuesday! The Farmer's Market kind of sucked b/c the vendors that I really like seem to have stopped coming, although I did find our Christmas tree farm and it's going to be awesome, but that's another post. One out of three was rocking though - that latte was super yum. I was sort of torn about going to the beach since the waves sucked and Sunset was super packed for the last day of the O'Neil and then I remembered this beach access that I've seen but have not been down near the turtle beach in Haleiwa. I decided today was a great day to explore it while I was kid free. Eve and CRH decided to stay home while I ventured out this morning. OMG, I stumbled off the access path into paradise. I sat on this gorgeous stretch of beach with my latte in total peace and quiet. For most of the time I was there, I was the ONLY person on the beach. Well this guy was there, but he left quickly upon my arrival.
A small, quiet family joined me but they were way down from where I was laying. It was just pure bliss. I've found my new happy place. I am never, ever leaving this island...ever...sorry Mom.
