Day 2: Too much fun in the sun!

Day two started out with a drive to the West Shore of the island. We were searching out a beach called Polihale. It was as far as you can drive on the highway and then about 4 miles down a long, long dirt road. The beach was beautiful, and mostly desereted. We played in the swells for a while, Brad and I keeping a close watch on our playful kids just to make sure one of them didn't go out with the tide. (Kind of scarey!) It is surreal to be at the beach and have the beautiful mountains of the Napli Coast in the back ground. Breath taking! As we lay on the sand...everyone was quiet and all of a sudden a huge swell came up and washed over us, towels, cameras and all. Luckily the cameras weren't wet but the towels were a disaster. We all laughed and went to wash off in the showers before heading out for lunch. We stopped at a wonderful little spot called the Kalaheo Cafe and had turkey burgers & cilantro garlic fries, sandwiches and salads and some really killer cookies too. Double chocolate macademia nut brownies were my favorite. Yum! On the way home we stopped at the local farmers market and it was so cool to see all of the unusual produce. After lunch we were a little worn out and a LOT sunburned so we headed back to the hotel to rest up! Because of the time difference here we have been getting up at 5am and so we are ready for bed by 8:30pm or 9pm.

The beach looks like heaven! I want to eat there too, the food descriptions are excellent.

Adrienne and I hit the OG for lunch on Monday-not quite Hawaii, but still yummy!
