I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share my Five For Friday!
I've spent the last two weeks with the hubby on the islands of Kauai and Oahu! Kauai was the last of the Hawaiian islands I had not visited yet (I've been wanting to go for the last couple of years). I checked that off my bucket list this summer! It was absolutely gorgeous, humid, but gorgeous! Did I mention humid? We're not talking just "average" humidity! This is the type of humidity that makes you feel sticky ALL the time...oh, and styling your hair in the morning...forget it! There isn't a straightener, curling iron, or styling product that can withstand the humidity! So, my hair went all N-A-T-U-R-A-L! :)
Here are a couple of pictures of a place we visited on our first day. I can't remember the name of it. I just remember being in a sundress, flip flops, and hiking a very steep hill to get to this "hidden gem" as our tour book called it. The book didn't mention I would need hiking boots and a gallon of water to get to this little gem:-). The views were stunning! I'm glad I didn't let my flip flops get in the way of me hiking up to this awesome spot!
If you can make out those tally marks, you will see that there have been 29 deaths at this spot in the last year!
Despite the scary sign, it was absolutely beautiful! I was nervous. I told the hubby there was no way he was jumping in. That lasted about as long as it took me to get my camera out. He saw a few of the locals jumping in and headed down the rocks. He is much more daring than I am. I definitely like to play it safe!
We did a little horseback riding while in Kauai. I LOVE horseback riding. We rode the horses to a couple of waterfalls, went swimming in the falls, had lunch, and some amazing views!
I'll quickly share a couple of my favorite spots on Oahu. The first spot, Turtle Beach. I don't actually know if that's what it's called, but that's what I call it. You'll see why:).
Next up...Bellows Beach. This is by far the most beautiful beach on the island! It's only open to military and their families, which makes it a little more special. The water is so clear and fairly calm.
Ok, I need a
number 6...maybe a number 7!
I'll call this #5 1/2
I have to quickly share with you that my blog got a makeover! You may have already noticed, if you're not on a mobile device. I absolutely LOVE it! Courtney, from Blogs fit for a queen did an amazing job! She was so patient with me (I may, or may not have changed my mind several times). If you're in need of a blog makeover, check her out!
That's my Five (and a half) for Friday! What are your summer plans before going back to school?
Have a great weekend!
