From beach to Beach

Posted on July 2, 2012

We woke up early Saturday morning to check out the sunrise off of Shipwreck Point and then went for a swim in the morning sun. After breakfast out at a restaurant in a nearby town we headed home to prepare for a day at the beach. We went back to Poipu beach for the day and got to see a chubby monk seal taking a nap on the beach. There was some great snorkeling and I found myself swimming in the middle of a giant mixed school of fish of all sizes – including a moorish idol lurking on the outside – and some very playful trigger fish.

Sunday was full of packing and flying back to CSULB, and waking up on Monday to realize that I was no longer on a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific. Bummer.
