Whirlwind Trip: Day 3

After Charlotte's appointment with the Pediatric Neurologist and Developmental Specialist (it was about 1.5-2 hours), we headed out for another adventure. Since our appointment was later in the morning, we got a late start (after lunch) on exploring. We headed out to the Hanauma Bay area, until we started to see the rain clouds... they hovered and hovered for awhile... so we decided to get a coffee (well, this lady did... Charlotte could only dream of having her very own cup. Got it to go, and made our way down to the waterfront... oh how peaceful it was. Even Charlotte enjoyed the view and let me drink my coffee in peace.

After that, we decided against snorkeling in Hanauma Bay (we'll have to save that for another time), and decided to just drive the coast a bit. Charlotte was crazy tired, and I was scared of the rain clouds... they would trickle some rain, and then stop... and then trickle again.

We didn't have too much time to spare, because I had a photo session with a family that evening... but we did manage to enjoy the sweet breeze, before we got back in the Jeep, and made our way over to Kapolei... on the way, we were even greeted by a sweet little rainbow. A trip to Hawaii, isn't a trip, until you've seen one after all...

A sweet family from Korea, recently moved to Hawaii and when they heard I was coming, they asked for me to photograph them on the beach.. I was honored. Oh what a delight it was... we went to to this beautiful remote lagoon... and had a blast. You can see pictures of that shoot here. While I was photographing, Charlotte was swimming... Both of us ladies were doing what we love to do the most.

And she swam and swam and swam until there's barely any light to see our footsteps as we left.
Pin It!


  1. Such a beautiful place!! Even on a rainy day, it is beautiful...and leaves you with a rainbow :)

  2. Absolutely lovely! Were you at Sandy Beach by chance? I have so many memories of swimming that beach! My dad used to body surf there. Feels like a million years ago. *sigh* I cannot wait to take my kids there.

  3. That last photo is so picturesque.
