Aloha, friends! I know it’s been a few days since I posted, so I’ll do two posts about my weekend. As you may remember, we were planning to hike Koko Railway on Saturday, but Kelsey had a late night on Friday, so instead, they decided to sleep in a little bit then take me out to introduce me to surfing. Now, those of you who know me know that I’m not exactly graceful. Surfing requires a certain amount of balance. I am happy to report, however, that my balance had absolutely no impact on my ability to surf. The constant barrage of waves flipping me over, yes…but not my balance. Apparently, it was a pretty rough day for someone just learning how to surf. Yeah, we’ll go with that. Meanwhile, Kelsey manages to stay on her board, if not standing, at least riding the wave in. I did get to see a Hawaiian Monk Seal sunning herself on the beach! Just a warning to those who may not be aware, the Hawaiian Monk Seal is an endangered species, and it is therefore illegal to approach these creatures. I took this photo from a distance with a zoom lens. Stay tuned for my recap of our Koko Railway hike!
