Oahu Adventure: Day 5

Standard

After a quick breakfast the kids asked to play Monopoly again. It took us a couple of hours before we called Alex the winner and put everything away. Today our mission is to find a beach on the North Shore to explore and then drive back to the famous Shrimp Shack for some dinner. We got ourselves ready for the day and did some laundry and then got in the car for an explore. 

The guidebook made Sunset Beach sound like a nice place for us to stop for a while. It wasn’t too far away and there were very few people there. The kids hadn’t quite committed to swimming or getting wet yet. They ran around and played for a while and got everything wet! Time to put on the cozzies and get in the water. One problem. The waves were a big too much for the little ones. They did love waiting for them to come in the then running. I went up to the car and changed into mine so I could get in the water with them. It was good fun but difficult as an adult not to be knocked down by waves or swept back in. I went in a bit further past the break and sort of bobbed along with the waves but they were too strong and kept pushing me back in. No wonder the North Shore is famous for surfing the big waves.

We bundled up and got back in the car. Speed limits are notoriously slow here. It took us a while to get back over by our house and down to The Shrimp Shack. We got there at 5:07…seven minutes after they shut for the day!  Oh well, back to the house. The kids had a bath while I prepared something to eat. After dinner they watched some shows on the iPad before we got ready for bed. Wednesday I have planned to take the kids up to Kualoa Ranch for a jungle expedition in a Pinzgauer. Should be a good time.
