Here is a (sort-of) summary of my trip, complete with photographs.
I saw some beautiful beaches.
|One of the only black sand beaches in the world!|
I saw some dolphins pass a few feet from me.
|This one actually turned to smile at me, but sadly, I was not able to capture that.|
I hiked in the rain forest.
Shira and I had dramatic beach photoshoots, one at 2 in the morning, one at a more decent hour. But no pics of The Sister, because she is shy (ha).
I saw The Black Pearl.
I went to the aquarium.
I went ziplining.
I saw so much beautiful scenery I feared my head might explode.
And finally, things not captured by camera: I a) swam with sharks, but could not take pictures because I was too busy clinging to cage bars for dear life, and b) got a really spectacular sunburn on my ass.
That's about it! I can't properly summarize my trip, and those pictures can't properly express the ridiculous beauty that is Hawaii, but this is as close as I can get. And now, after an eight-day trip and fourteen-hour flight . . . I get to leave for a month-long writing camp!
P.S. Apologies for the formatting issues. Blogger is being rather stubborn.
