On Sunday I arrived home from Hawaii. I was sad to go; who would want to leave the warm, sunny, and beautiful Oahu? Not me! Sadly my vacation did come to an end and I headed back to school.
Hawaii was sunny and warm (a huge break from the rainy, gray, cold Massachusetts weather I have right now…)! Oahu was also absolutely beautiful with a contrast of turquoise (yes, turquoise!) warm water and rolling emerald green mountains. I even saw a rainbow three times! While we were there, my dad, Caroline, and I went surfing for the first time ever! It was awesome and extremely exhilarating! I love surfing now and can’t wait until the next opportunity to surf arises! My family hiked while we were in Hawaii too, we climbed the rim wall of the Diamond Head crater and hiked to Makapu Point. Both scenic locations had beautiful views of Honolulu, the Pacific, and near beaches! I also went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay: it was really cool to be just inches away from bright tropical fish! We spent a good amount of time swimming too, both my sister and I LOVE to swim! It was also really enjoyable to go to downtown Honolulu where all the shops are, window-shopping was great! Now back in rainy-ish, gray, and chilly Massachusetts I am reminiscing about the tropical water, sunny skies, and warmth of Hawaii…. Why does vacation have to end?!
Did you do anything over vacation?
