Life has been pretty lazy over the last couple weeks. I am on the Big Island escaping from reality and trying to do as little as possible. And find it pretty guilt-free because it is somewhat of a transitional period for me. In a couple of weeks I will be on the other side of the country spending my summer outside of the pacific ocean!! And hopefully spending a lot of time in the Atlantic. Temperature willing. Super excited about it actually. But whew.. more on that later.
So a couple of friends and I decided to drive to the other side of the island for some snorkeling and lounging at one of our favorite beaches.. 69′s. But don’t let the name fool you. It is actually named after the mile marker it falls on.. not that other 69. Whatever that means.
We even made a couple of stops off in Waimea.. including the farmers market, thrift store, and “Puppies for Sale.” Which really made me think long and hard about potentially living in that area. It is so beautiful. Misty green hills, quaint plantation homes, and that good ol’ ranching vibe. The Big Island is such a unique, diverse place. It’s pretty incredible. They’re not lying when they called this island big. You could easily choose to be between white sand beaches, rolling green hills and horse covered pastures, long stretches of lava, active flowing rivers of molten lava, snowy mountain tops, dramatic valleys, sweeping waterfalls, black sand beaches, rain forests, and dry desolate deserts. All in one day [if you tried really hard]. It’s hard to beat and the perfect place to be on hiatus.
Just another lazy saturday on the Big Island.
