Can you believe it! Yes, I have started a blog. I never thought I would actually do this, but it is actually kind of fun. Recently, we took a trip to Hawaii and had the time of our life. We flew to Honolulu (thanks to skymiles!) and cruised on Norwegian cruise line from island to island for a week. We cruised to Oahu, Kauai, Big Island, and Maui. Each island is different from the next, but I will have to say Kauai was our favorite. It's the mountainous (is that a word?) one in most of the pictures. Our most favorite adventure all week was the helicopter ride...I got tears in my eyes seeing all the beauty God put in one place...We got to see the sunrise atop a volcano one morning. Yes, we woke up at 3 AM to drive to the top of the Haleakala volcano to see the sunrise above the clouds... Well worth it though. In Maui, we were brave enough to go to a nude beach! We embarrassed ourselves so we didn't get naked, but we saw a man surf naked and an old woman do yoga in the sand. Everyone knows I couldn't keep a straight face while seeing a bunch of naked people! Those people take their nudity seriously. On the Big Island, we saw a black sand beach and lava pouring into the ocean...While snorkeling, I unintentionally swam with a 6 ft. shark! I never knew I could swim so fast back to the boat once I spotted it below me... Well, I could go on all day about Hawaii. I do suggest everyone goes once in their lifetime!
