Story # 189: Aloha, Paradise.

How is Hawaii a paradise? See for yourself :) 

TEMPLE BEACH 


It's just right across from the Laie Temple of the LDS  church. I love how all the houses are right next to the ocean on a hill. 


It is perhaps the beach that I frequented the most. Only 10 minutes walking from BYU. 


A girl tossing the sand up in the air. Oh... I love beach. 


LAIE POINT


This is where all of the houses you see in the first temple beach picture located at. It's a rocky hill and has the most beautiful sight. 


Somehow this has become one of the good spots for fishing. On the day I went there, there were about 20 or 30 people fishing. 






I climbed down this rock once with Mr.L and it was pretty down there. A lot of crabs too. 

SUNSET BEACH


You should not come to Oahu and not go to Sunset Beach. This is one of my favorite beaches. 


The sand is so huge. They are more like powdered corals than sand.


Fairies were dancing on the rippled bed 























I FORGOT WHAT THIS WAS CALLED




That's not a rock. That's a sea-turtle! It came up so close to the surface. 


Mountain, Sea, Sky...Paradise. 







THE SHORELINE ACROSS FROM 
THE CROUCHING TIGER INN


I remember someone once told me that no one stacked those rocks, they were formed like that naturally. I don't know if that's true or not. But it's one head-turning piece of art for me everytime I drove past it. 






CHINA MAN'S HAT


There was a story about a Chinese farmer boy who ate something that turned him into a giant. He fell asleep in the ocean leaving his hat on the surface of the sea. He slept for so many years and his hat turned into a small island.

After living in the green and blue island of Oahu for 10 days, you could imagine my SHOCK/ sadness/depression when I saw this on the plane flying into Las Vegas.
