Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay

This was probably my favorite day from our time in Hawaii! I’ve been here before as a kid so I thought snorkeling would be a piece of cake, but my mask was leaking so my nose would fill up with water which made me hold my breath instead of breathing through the snorkel and then I would come up for air and drain my mask…and I kept doing this and Jake and I were cracking up for like 20 minutes. lol We finally switched masks and then everything was fine.

Anyways, we saw so many beautiful fish, I would grab Jake and point at each new fish I saw! The Humuhumus are my favorite but probably not Jakes favorite because one of them literally swam full force right into Jakes mask like it was trying to head butt him or something haha He claims an eel also tried to eat him but I never saw it…lol  We basically spent the whole time laughing and in awe of all the beauty and it was just a really really wonderful day.

Also if you are looking for an underwater phone case, I have this one and it works great! And if you are wondering how the sound/speaker works with the case on, I haven’t noticed any problems at all, everyone can still hear me when talking on the phone and music plays just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you are having a great week!

A Swim with Wild Sea Turtles

For Christmas Jake bought me a leather journal to write about all our travel adventures. The feeling of being able to re-read our memories of different places, knowing that it was authentically written in that place and time…well I just love it ๐Ÿ™‚ So here is a journal entry from our time in Hawaii!

Oahu, Hawaii // 5-25-17

Today we went to Haleiwa on the North Shore. Im not sure the name of the beach but we swam with turtles! It was magical! ๐Ÿ™‚ I saw at least 5 of themย and they swam right up to us and around us and we just floated next to them. They are so cute and calm. It was an amazing experience that I hope to have again someday!

Jake and I also went for a walk along the beach and found some tide pools and explored around there for a while and after we all went to Matsumoto shaved ice which was super yummy!

Happy Wednesday friends!

With Love,

Lindsay
