I have two friends who love the beach ... and mainly the sunshine. Me? Less sun. Each of them enjoy my favorite beach (so far), Keawakapu. It is a little over one half mile long with three entrances. The northernmost entrance is my favorite. There is a condo complex there and they have an enormous grassy area that is public domain. Can't use their lounge chairs, but I put my blanket and chair in the shade of a palm ... and keep moving to stay in the shade.
The shore is a clear gentle slope into the ocean. A couple of mornings a week there used to be an ocean water aerobics group. I'll be checking into that as our local pool is CLOSING for six months for renovations (as of Jan 1). Why would they do that during tourist season????? I'll save that for a rant day.
Lisa invited me to Ulua Beach the other day. It was great to have a buddy to splash about with. She has a very cool water hammock that I am going to try on our next outing. If I love it as much as I think I will, Amazon here I come. Now that I have one good knee, it was so much easier to walk in and out of the water, and even walk in the sand.
We are rather new friends, so we chatted until I thought it was too much sun for me. She brought an umbrella just for me, so I got into the shade. And we did a bit more chatting.
That evening, I started looking for a shade tent that is lightweight and EASY to put up. Can't wait to try it out! The umbrella keeps blowing away ...
