Hawaii Day 5 & 6

Not a whole lot happened on Day 5. We did a lot of driving, which isn't a bad thing since the island is so pretty. We made a stop at BYU Hawaii which wasn't as cool as I thought it would be. We had an interesting conversation with the lady in the information center. We asked her what there was cool to see and she said what do you want to see? We told her we asked her because we don't know what there is cool to see. Matt and I laughed so hard and she just stared at us. She was not helpful.

From there we drove to Turtle Bay and didn't see any turtles and we made a stop at a fruit stand on the side of the road. It was pretty yummy. then we headed to another beach I forgot the name of and saw LOTS and LOTS of turtles I guess this is where they feed them so they tend to hang out more there. It was pretty fun to see them all but it was really hot and crowded so we stayed for only a few minutes.

We decided to try snorkeling out in sharks cove. There were a TON of fish and it was really fun. I don't enjoy snorkeling as much as Matt but it was good for me to see it. That is when my goggles were filling up with water.

That day we tried to head down to Pearl Harbor but by the time we got there it was closed, which was a bummer. We headed back to our hotel and went out for a nice dinner at Macaroni Grill. It was actually quite delicious!

Just a cute picture of us at this look out point on one of the freeways. Matt posed with a peace sign because we saw A LOT of people doing it. We figured we better join in!

Day 6

On Friday We tried heading strait to Honauma Bay to do snorkeling. It was full by the time we got there at 9:30. We were totally bummed and tried driving back and forth to see if it would open up for us. But nothing. So we decided to head to Sandy Beach again...I didn't get in the water this time. Too scary or me!

This is Matt body surfing he got pretty good but the locals were really riding those waves!

After that we headed to Pearl Harbor and were able to join in on the fun there. It was all free and we both really enjoyed looking at the exhibits and watching the video. I went through the exhibits a little faster then Matt, which is pretty normal.

We took this picture of the sub marine for Matt's dad.

Matt was pretending to be scaring all the people on board the ship. I think it may have worked. He at least scared the Asian guy standing next to me watching Matt pose.

Pretty cute Huh?

The names of all the people who died the day of Pearl Harbor, pretty intimidating wall.
