Hawaii pt. 2

So more glorious pictures for you to be jealous of. Grab a coke zero


After Waimea Canyon, we saw the spouting horn. It's a blowhole that makes a lot of noise and it spouts water. Pretty sick. We watched it for ten minutes and then decided getting sun was more important.


This little guy was chillin' on the beach! :) Monk seals are known to go to the shore after a feeding and they rest there. Don't worry he's NOT DEAD. They state of Hawaii is very protective of them and have someone guard them and they are also roped off so they will be 'safe'. They put up signs like this one too.


Don't worry he's living the life.

The next day we went to the spa and got a massage. Ahhhhh. Then we decided to walk down to a beach by our hotel. Nothing really where we were staying was 'close' to the beach and a lot of beaches take a steep downhill to get there and a steep uphill to get back.




Yea, not so dangerous? It was a nice beach with barely anyone on it.

That night we also went to Postcards Cafe.


It was pretty good, and the hummus was amazing. I have a thing for hummus. :)


This is hideaways beach, you have to hike down 191 stairs/muddy rocks that are disguised as stairs to get there. Luckily there is a rope like thing to hold on too.


After Hideaways we drove to another beach, that had a little river that you had to cross to get to the beach.


It was kind of cold in the afternoon on this day and I was burning. I was stupid and didn't put any sunscreen on my legs the day before thinking they already had some color. I forgot I'm not 10 anymore and burned crazy lines on my legs. Giant Fail. Luckily the next day I was fine after slathering aloe on them.

The next day we went to another beach, called Tunnels. It's known for great snorkeling and Mr. R got some snorkel stuff. I am not one to snorkel. I hate when the fish get close, it freaks me out. He said he saw a turtle.



This was a picture taken on the way to Tunnels. See what I mean about being so green and lush?


Sadly, this was also the day we left to come back home. We checked out and got ready to come back to the 'mainland'. Before leaving though, we stopped in over by the airport/harbor and got some delicious dinner at Dukes restaurant.


I know. I know. Wearing leggings as legitimate pants, not acceptable, BUT I was trying to be comfy on the plane. Also didn't want to do the hand on the hip, yet again, so I made an awkward arm thing. Cool. Anyways, Dukes overlooks this bay. This is where Mr. R saw one of his students. CRAZY.

Other than that... The trip was simply amazing. I got some fat cold sores from spending a little too much time with my 2nd lover, the sun, which stinks now, but oh well it was more than worth it. We flew back on a red eye on Friday morning and then Friday night was KAYVMANIA. One of my roommates little brother's best friends (I know him because we went to Hawaii together and we are kind of close in age) turned 21. He rented out the BigRedBus and we rode around in it and it took us to four different bars. I didn't drink much but when I did it was keystone because that was free on the bus. So classy.


Me and the best friend, yup, we are wearing matching shirts for the party.


Party till you pass out. What am I? 15? Hilarious none the less and though I was tired it was a great time.

So that sums up my trip and last weekend.

Last night was wonderful. We decided on the counter and it was great food and the Angels finally got out of the losing slump. Mr. R got me the newest coach breast cancer awareness keychain, which is too cute. Tonight I'm going to get in some miles after work and I hope it cools down soon. Right now I'm really craving a cupcake or some Redbull. Perhaps a lot of sugar free Redbull.

Tomorrow = deals coming your way.

I am SO jealous!! Wow.

It looks just heavenly there. I wish I was there instead of cooped up in an office!

(You look fantastic by the way!)

Jamie said...

Awesome pics!
Love the Keystone Light =)
I am so jealous... looks like an awesome trip and you and Mr R look amazing!

Susan said...

jealous jealous jealous! I love your orange stripe bathing suit! So cute...especially with a tan!

Shannon said...

I get coldsores all the time and the only thing that will heal them quickly is taking Zinc. It's just a vitamin that you can get at any drug store but it works miracles! If you decide to try it make sure you take it with food, otherwise it'll make you sick, ew!

Matt said...

Awesome pics, awesome trip. I actually have a picture from the Galapagos Islands where I'm laying down with the sea lions. It's pretty awesome.

Billy Burger said...

You are too funny. I cracked up at that arm thing line.

Great pics - welcome back!

MOMMY-MOMO said...

ummm...yah... VERY JEALOUS! Enough said.

J.J. said...

Nice arm move. You could have always turned around and done that red carpet look-over-your-shoulder-look-at-the-back-of-my-dress move. That move is one to keep in your back pocket. You never know when you might need it.

Awesome pics. Nice tan.

J.J. said...

Oh yeah...thanks for stopping by my little blog :) I really dig reading yours.

J said...

OMG I want to go to Hawaii RIGHT NOW!!! Sounds like the perfect vacation!! Where did you get your orange stripped bathing suit! It is so cute!

kristen said...

Cool vaca. I worked on a cruise ship for a while and we cruised around the isalnds for part of it. I miss it. Next to Dukes is the BEST burgers you'll ever taste at The Beach Hut. I miss them terribly.

You look nice and tan!

Alisa said...

Fun times!

We should get a crew together sometime and do a marathon in Hawaii! They have one on Kauai, Oahu and Maui. I know the humidity would be terrible BUT it's freakin' Hawaii!

Did you ever make it to Larsen's beach? It's another really good snorkeling place...also known to be empty. We were the only ones there until right before we left when the nudists came (yikes!).

Marathon Maritza said...

Gorgeous, just gorgeous!

I love the little seal guy! I want one!

And the leggings as pants - I totally understand being comfy on a plane. I wear as close to pajamas as I can on a long flight. LOL

Tara Gibson said...

gorgeous! gosh i wanna go back!!!

you look beautiful in that blue! You should wear it more often : )

Marlene said...

All this beach talk is making me SO jealous! It looks fabulous. So glad you had such an amazing time!

(I never know what to do with my arms in pics...)

ShutUpandRun said...

Again, great photos. I love that seal on the beach. That's what I look like on the beach. Only they don't put rope and signs up for me.

ShutUpandRun said...

Oh and about the cold sores. I put sunscreen directly on my lips in big doses. I finally got a Valtrex perscription and if I take that at the first sign of a sore, it goes away. They are NASTY!!

Amy said...

Awesome Pics! Thanks for sharing. The trip looked amazing!

Btw... that bikini you have... the orange and blue one?? That's my DREAM bikini for the summer. I even have a picture of it from the Victorias Secret catalog on my fridge to try and keep me from opening the fridge all the time. Looks great on you!

LyndsAU said...

X-Country2 said...

emily_howard said...

I have been daydreaming about Hawaii since I read your first post this morning. Agh. These pictures are amazing!

Mollie said...

How fun!! No judgement here on the LAP (leggings as pants)... I used to make fun of the girls around campus who did it, then I tried it, and it is SO COMFY. :) Glad you had a good trip!

Marcy said...

OOoooohhh looks like a fabulous time my dear! Totally jealous. You big B! (only playin :-) )

*~! megs !~* said...

still so jealous!! i need a vacay! next time you're having a serious love affair and you feel that tingle of the dreaded cold sore, take 1000 mg of L-lysine. it's over the counter in the vitamins. i do this when i feel it coming and it knocks 'em out. they never come up.

love that bathing suit!

Wearing Mascara said...

Beautiful pictures. I love hummus too.. well, I'm obsessed with it really.


Stacey said...

Isn't Kauai the most beautiful island! We moved her in February and it has been fabulous! Hope you have a great vacation!

Glenn Jones said...

Looks like a great vacation Danica! I have an Aunt that lives in Princeville. I can she why she moved from the mainland!

Amy said...

Looks like SO much fun. You are too cute! :)

I agree with the snorkeling thing. I snorkeled on vaca a couple weeks ago, and the fish get so close! I would wave them away with my fin because I would be freaking out. Silly, I know, but still!

Run For Life said...

Ahhh, that looks so beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing your trip with us. :)
