Maui - Day 1

On the first day of our Hawaiian adventure my sister and I decided to hit the beach and find some sweet boogie boarding waves. Amy read in her book that 'Little Beach' near 'Big Beach' had some great waves...however it was 'clothing optional'. shouldn't be that bad right? It wasn't like it was a NUDE beach right? Clothing optional sounded fine to us. She also read in the book that you had to go on a mini hike to get to the location. I was a little hesitant about that since my Achilles was still not healed, but we went anyway.

When we arrived at the beach we weren't sure where to go, and then we saw a guy on the top of this mini hill so we headed that way. Once we made it to the top the view was great!

Then when we turned the corner we saw the following sign:
Let me just say that even though it was 'clothing optional' there were hardly ANY CLOTHES being worn. The killer was it was almost ALL locals and ALL MEN! There were dudes playing football, and Frisbee. Naked...with just a knee brace on, playing Frisbee. Quite the site. As you know I am known for taking my spy photos, but I felt like it would have been disrespectful to have taken photos of the naked locals. So instead I have some boogie boarding photos for you. This first one is priceless as my sister wiping out.

This next one is of her catching a sweet wave.

We had a great time hanging out at the beach even with all the ween staring at us. We even did some snorkeling in some not so calm water.

Afterwards we met back up with the family as the dudes played golf. John had to return his rental clubs so we jumped in the car and headed to the store.

We also decided to get a shaved ice, which turned out to be one of the best ones I've ever had. Let me tell you that I have had a lot of shaved ices in my time as they are my favorite. This is one thing that I was really looking forward to going back to Hawaii. The first place we went to had the following machine, which was AWESOME, and the lady also overloaded it with the syrup. Talk about a perfect combo!

For dinner that night we headed to Roy's. John and I went to Roy's on our honeymoon in Kauai 5 years ago, and it was just as good.

Here is John in his island wear:
Enjoying our cocktails:
They even gave us warm towels at one point!

I've had that same experience at the beach on the Big Island. There's nothing like sunburnt genitalia!

I'm pretty sure I saw a white butt in that 2nd video. Must have been a tourist because I don't think locals have white butts.

Amber, you crack me up. You are the best writer! I can totally picture this scenario.

That picture of John looks like "he's got a little Capitan in him" LOL.

And now BTW I can't get a visual of naked locals playing frisbee....heebie geebies! Ugh! GAG!
