Best way to come back to Hawai'i? A camping trip out on the west side. It was the perfect way to transition back into island life.
It was a really last minute trip. Per usual for all our activities.. it seems. We sort of talked about going camping and then [on the day of] agreed to all meet up and pitch a tent [or grab the futon for the back of the truck.] Just about all my favorite people on the island were there. We drank, talked story, had a picnic bench dance party, and watched the moon set over the ocean. The next morning we ate french toast, swam with dolphins, and had an epic surf/hang out at Makaha the rest of the day [even though it rained we still went strong until the very end!]
I love camping and would have to say this particular weekend was the perfect way to spend any weekend. Always. It makes me feel so grateful for my friends and the place that I live. Everyone else can have their glitz and glam. We've got our hibachi's and surfboards ready for any weekend!
Back to the Islands.. and doing it the right way!
