Making way to launch, barefoot on lava rock-I'm so bad ass;)
Step one, we are both in the water, this was my first stop to gush on how awesome it was- yup, I didn't get very far- I may have made it a bit further before my next stop
The boys caught us finishing our swim, we both decided we would love to swim commute all the time
After our swim we stopped at a farmers market and picked up some fresh produce. Super yummy papaya, pineapple and veggies for my salads all week. How could this day get any better? How about a trip up the island to one of the bestest beaches in the whole world. When I think of great beaches that I have been to this one is always in the top three. The sand is amazing, the water so clear and blue and it is so peaceful. We spent several hours at Hapuna beach. Bobbing in the water- which required bikini number two for the day, sitting in our little sheltered cove, having our picnic lunch and one of us did some serious napping-Me Hearty really was taking this vacation thing seriously!

sun for one, shade for one- Me Hearty was in heaven with his orange passion Hawaiian sun drink all week
After a few hours of reading, bobbing and napping we headed back to town to get ready for our next adventure of the day. We got back to the condo, cleaned up our stuff a bit, had a quick dinner on the lanai and then I put on my third bikini of the day and we headed out for our evening adventure. We had a sunset kayak from Keauhou Bay out to the night feeding grounds for the Manta Rays. We weren't holding out a ton of hope at seeing Manta Rays since our friends had gone on a boat trip two nights earlier and gotten skunked. Once we got out to the viewing spot we were given our dive lights and we were into the water. We had lucked out and were the only two people on this nights trip so we could pretty much dictate where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. It was great and right at the 30 minute mark of being in the water we got to see one of these magnificent creatures swim right under us and around. She really liked our light and there was an abundance of plankton in the water so she was having a feast. Right after that Me Hearty got a little sea sick, maybe a little more than he let on as he was pretty green the rest of the night and into the next day. For me the day couldn't have been better. In my rating system, 3 bikinis equals the Perfect Day.
