Other sand is more black.
i've been to hawaii before.
mainly kona and oahu.
kauai once before.
but i don't remember it ever being this lush and gorgeous.
We went to hanalei to shop and meet some of the lds members at the branch there that my mom goes to church with on Sundays.
The taro fields are gorgeous.
Mom's friends own a chunk of the taro fields behind me.
We ate lunch, shave ice, and bought souvenirs for Sean and the kids.
I can't WAIT to give them what I found!
Hidden away in my bag:)
Mom's friend at the church showed us how to wrap pork in taro leaves and then in tea leaves to make a tasty little recipe.
The younger girls were all talking about Bethany Hamilton. The girl from hanalei whose arm was bitten off by a shark.
There's a movie that just came out about it.
We are going to see it tomorrow.
The premiere was here last week.
So these girls are all friend's with her.
At least they said they were.
Whenever anyone becomes famous everyone seems to claim they know them.
Let's give these girls the benefit of the doubt.
It is hanalei.
So they were talking about how the movie made all of this boy drama and that "Bethany is just not drama," so they didn't like that part of it.
And that it was really weird to see people they knew being played by actors on a big screen.
It was fun to see the girls light up when they talked about it all.
You could tell they felt really special.
Then the girls found bugs in the taro leaves so they went outside to throw the bugs out.
They were so calm about it.
I wouldn't be so calm.
They were big bugs.
So we went outside and there was the baptismal font.
In the ground.
With big wood planks covering it for safety.
I loved it:)
They were such good people.
I loved meeting them all.
I am tired.
Bali hai (basically just a really big rock).
think the movie "South Pacific."
Na Pali coast.
Crystal Clear Water.
AND I walked on water.
:)My muscles are getting sore.
The roosters made me think max was crying on the baby monitor this morning, but then I peeked open one eye and remembered I was in Hawaii.
I wish they'd roost somewhere else.
The Emily show bids you goodnight.
That is all.
