Most of my blog is about the market,stocks, bonds and interest rates.. pretty boring stuff I know. Today I woke up early with the thought of a beautiful deserted beach my husband told me about the night before. He had discovered it while driving his big truck and wanted to explore it with me this morning . Our grandson spent the night so the three of us after viewing the purple skies and sunrise over Waimea we decide to get an early start to beat the traffic. We stopped at Ted's Bakery a really hot spot for local diners and a great anytime food choice. Just down the hwy and onto a side street we parked by a little opening you could barely see the beach and ocean, but a short walk through some bushes and you exit onto the most beautiful white sandy beach, it was low tide and my grandson played in the shallow tide pools and ran along the beach... we enjoyed our walk and just had a great time. So serene and beautiful, I didn't want to leave. I know I will definantly be back!

Then.... no I am not quite finish! Driving back we notice about 100 +++ people swimming in a contest I later found out to be Cholo's Waimea Bay Swim, a 1 mile race,part of the 3 event... Surf n Sea series. Anyway we stop as so many people do... on the side of the road and snapped a couple camera shots.. hope you enjoy them. But everyone should take a few minutes... stop and enjoy lifes pleasures. Do something to put in the memory banks once in a while. I did today....I sometimes forget I live in Paradise even tho it's right out my back door. I am truely blessed with a wonderful family and living on the North Shore of Oahu.
