This was our first real vacation (i.e. no racing of any kind involved) since our honeymoon in 2006!
Jeff booked everything when I was in Australia so all I had to do was pack my boardies, kini (bikini), wetsuit surf top, flip flops and sunscreen!
I did manage to get Jeff to let me take some running gear and convince him to do the same incase we felt like ' exploring' the island a little further.
So I have put together some photos from our trip to show some of our activities.They are of a few different runs we did- Diamond Head Crater, in the water at Waikiki( didn't get any at Haleiwa unfortunately or of the big Loggerhead turtle I touched), running/trails at Puu Ualakaa State Park and Pupukea-Paumalo State Park.
Jeff bought me a waterproof/shatterproof camera (do you think he thinks I am rough or clumsy with things??!!) for my b'day so we used that a little bit and I have actually downloaded them onto my computer and put some description etc with them...that is HUGE for me as I can never be bothered to do it:)
I wished I had taken more surfing photos but was having so much fun catching waves, I forgot about taking it out.
One lucky girl and a huge smile left on my face from our vacation and a huge warmth in my heart.
Mahalo for reading and looking at my blog:)
