We left the house at 9am and got back home at 11:00pm. It was a really good day.although it started out like this...We were afraid this rain could ruin our day, but thankfully after a little North Shore shopping the weather cleared and the sun came out and it turned into a very beautiful day. See?
After a little theraputic shopping we had a yummy lunch at the new mexican restaurant, Luibuenos and then went to our secret beach and spent the next 4 hours or so alternating between wading in the water and laying out in the sun, talking and reading. It was glorious. Seriously. i mean just look at this view. A surf instructor even let Hillary borrow his board while he went into to Haleiwa to get some food. Only in Hawaii would someone trust you with their board without even knowing you. After the beach we went to our favorite restaurant on the whole island, Haleiwa Eats. Excellent Thai Food. We make it a point to eat there as much as possible. and guess what? while we were the only 2 eating there (because it was a little earlier than the dinner rush, in walked Terry O'Quinn aka JOHN LOCKE to get take out...i about jumped out of my seat. Wish i could say i had some proof but it was obvious he didn't want to be disturbed. You'll just have to take my word on it. We saw him. AND he had a pretty young girl driving him around in a little hybrid car. hehe. we were leavin gthe North Shore right at sunset which was one of the best times to make the drive. In my 5+ years here i have always wanted to stop on the side of the road and take pictures. This time we did. Look how pretty it is! I wanted to get a pic of the 2 of us with the pretty background so we tried to set up the self timer...we had a hard time getting the camera steady though.
this was the best we got...not quite the materpiece i had imagined, but i love the pic all the same :)
