North Shore Morning

North Shore Morning

One recent Saturday we decided to finally head out bright & early to check out the North Shore. I’d been to the North Shore many times before but it was my husband’s first trip there so I was excited from the very start when we got our hot beverages “in town” & hit the road….

Further down the shore…

 Our North Shore adventure ended on a very delicious note in the early afternoon with lunch at Ola at Turtle Bay. Above, almost 8 months pregnant & enjoying the scene after a dip in the waters right at Turtle Bay Resort while my husband enjoyed Big Island Brewhaus’s “Golden Sabbath” Beer in the open air dining area overlooking the ocean at Ola.
