Happy Aloha Friday 🤙🏼 I haven’t looked forward to the end of the week as much as I have this week in quite a while. Ughhh what a waste of a week! I’ve got so much on my plate, I almost don’t know what to do next. Unfortunately almost nothing went as intended this week (aka barely anything was accomplished), and when you’re already emotionally drained, it’s pretty darn easy to feel beat down. The BEST news is it will all settle in the next month or so, but it’s sure going to be a ride until then! I remember saying at the end of 2017 that 2018 was going to take me for a ride! I’m so tired I feel like I could sleep for an entire day, but I can’t lol because I’m such a creature of habit. 🤦🏻♀️ the only good news is I beat my mile run from 2 weeks ago (7:30). This week I did one mile in 7:11. 🙌🏼 59 days until I can just lay on this beach and be kissed by the Hawaiian sun 😎
On your way to the famed Pololu Valley Lookout, be sure to stop and explore the quiet haven of Hawi. Perhaps best known as the bicycle turnaround for the annual IRONMAN World Championship before triathletes pedal back south to Kona, this historic town, located on the northernmost tip of the island, is home to homespun boutiques and lively restaurants, as well as exciting outdoor adventure activities like farm tours, kayak tours, zip lining, ATV tours, and the original Kamehameha I statue. #hawi#smalltownhawaii
After hours of hiking through dense jungle, lots of mud and along sheer cliff faces we made it, with a few cuts and grazes and a ruined pair of @lululemon leggings, to this incredible view. Hawaii definitely has my heart now.
Kaihalulu Beach, also know as the Red Sand beach, was definitely one of our favorite spots we visited on Maui. The dark red sand against the deep blue water was such a unique and crazy beautiful sight to see, even in the pouring rain. ❤️🌊
The Kohala Coast on the Island of Hawaii has some of the most enchanting beaches on the island. The Island of Hawaii is the largest in the chain and is your island for adventure! Follow along with me over the next 6 weeks as I feature each major Hawaiian island! #followfriday#hawaiifriday#lethawaiihappen#islandofhawaii
The Napali Coast is known to be one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. It can only be seen by boat, helicopter or foot. Stretching fifteen miles long, this rugged coast is characterized by pali (high cliffs) that rise to 4,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, sea caves, waterfalls, and narrow green valleys. No wonder it’s been the location for movies such as King Kong, Jurassic Park, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Have you hiked, taken a boat or helicopter tour to experience the NaPali coast? What did you like best?
