We Are Beach People



When planning a vacation, we always plan for the beach. I know some people prefer places like Italy, Paris, NYC...and while I wouldn't turn my nose up at those places if offered a free vaca, my first choice will always be the sea and sand. Museums and ancient buildings? Eh, I'll pass. Call us uncultured if you wish, but "peace dude" is what we are.

Vacation to us consists of relaxation, good food, good drinks, snorkeling, lounging and all around just taking it easy. Stress free, no schedule and did I mention good drinks? 

Our second home has welcomed us back with its usual big squeezy bear hug. 

Aloha.

  7. Have an amazing time! My H and I are the same way, we'll take a beach and fruity drinks with umbrellas in them any day over city streets and guided tours. A vacay should be relaxing!

  9. Have a fun relaxing time. And I agree with the no museums, and ancient buildings, give me a drink, a good book and a beach and I'm good to go!

  10. I could not agree with you more. I have friends who vacationed/Honeymooned in Europe and while they had a great time and their pics and experiences were amazing...walking around and learning and looking at art really ain't my style. I'll see you on the lounge chair with a Miami Vice, eyes on the water. Amen sister.

  14. Soooo jealous.

    Have you taken your babes to Turtle Beach (aka Laniakea Beach) on Oahu? It's totally worth the day trip, sea turtles chillin' everywhere. It's along the Kamehameha Highway, on the way to the North Shore.

  18. Normally I would agree with you, I absolutely love being at the beach, but it is pretty much the only place I've ever vacationed. I'm dying to go somewhere, pretty much anywhere, different. I want to play tourist in a big new city.
