Today in Hawaii we met up with the Emery's. The Emery's used to live in Jen's hometown in California while growing up and now they live on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaii. The wanted to show us their favorite beach location the Kona side of the island where we were staying.
We hit up Waialea Beach (beach 69) - this place was perfect for us! There was lots of trees with shade on the beach, we brought a picnic lunch, and the water was calm for snorkeling and exploring!
Zach and Logan had fun picking out pieces of coral that were washed up on the beach.
We saw lots of turtles swimming at beach 69. We were able to get up close and personal with the sea turtles.
We enjoyed the beach most of the afternoon. Afterwards we headed back to the resort to clean up and go out for some dinner. The Emery's had a local favorite they wanted to take us to...it was a restaurant right on the beach.
