Hawaii through my iPhone

Hi friends! I hope you have been well these past 10+ days. Dave and I had a great time in Hawaii and I'm going to be honest and say a social media break felt so good. However, I am glad to be back and to get into the swing of things again. 

I thought I'd do a quick recap of our trip through iPhone photos: 

                   
1. Plane trip there
2. Oahu from the air
3. Kailua beach where we spent our first 5 days
4. Sunrise in Kailua Beach - Thanks to jet lag I was up super early the first 4 to 5 days. 
5. Flag above the USS Arizona that was sunk during Pearl Harbor. Very sombering to be there and made me appreciate my freedom 
6. I ran! 
7. Koko Crater trail - I sweated a disgusting amount climbing up that mountain but the view at the top was worth it. 
8. Sometimes it's too sunny for selfies ;)
9. A luau - I liked the lei more than the luau. 

                        
10. Waterfall in Oahu - can't remember the name 
11. We are 1!!! I told this to Dave at least 50 times :)
12. Volcano glow in the Big Island 
13. I loved all the flowers 
14. Akaka Falls on te Big Island 
15. Mauna Kea - tallest mountain from the sea bed. One of my favorite things and also one of the scariest as we drove up there. I was so scared I almost puked. 
16. Geckos - yes, I fed them some papaya. 
17. Swimming with the dolphins. Can't even describe how fun it was to swim in the wild with them. 
18. Waikiki beach - our last stop on the trip. I thought it was waaaaay overcrowded but we wanted to at least see what it looked like. There were two massive turtles hanging out there which was fun to see. 

That's a quick recap of Hawaii. I can't wait to catch up with everyone and I hope you all are doing well!

  2. We got to spontaneously swim with Dolphins on our trip too! Craziest/coolest/most memorable experience from our trip! Bummer was we were just out snorkeling (not planning to see anything crazy cool) and weren't expecting the 70+ pod of dolphins that came upon us! We were out there for 2:30 hours and I could have stayed all day for sure! Love love love. I can't wait to hear more!

  12. I freaking love the dolphins! We saw them when we were snorkeling too but they were a bit too far out for me to feel comfortable swimming on my own out to them. I love all the fish too though. They are so colorful and fun.

  15. You should go sometime. I recommend the big Island over Oahu but both are fun.

  20. Fun that you lived there? Number one experience??? Well, I can't pick one ... I'd say ocean wise swimming with the dolphins. Hiking wise - was Koko Crater Trail. Mountain wise - MOna Kea. Have you been there? I couldn't believe we were above the clouds and the stars were so bright. It was surreal.
