From beach to Beach

Posted on July 2, 2012 by Katherine Macklin

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.
