This morning, Sara and Mike went for a run down the boardwalk and to the state park. On the way, there was a monk seal sleeping on the beach. We decided to make that Monk seals example our template for the entire trip: sleep, swim, eat, sleep, eat, sleep some more. It worked out well. After breakfast, we packed all our stuff in the car and headed down the road to Kapalua Bay Beach. This bay is a protected little spot just 10 minutes away from our condo and is well known for its smaller waves and clear water and excellent snorkeling. It did not disappoint. We saw oodles of fish, lots of turtles, and built castles and figurines in the sand. It was a great place for Madeline to explore the ocean without getting pummeled by powerful waves. It was also a great place to snorkel because it was quite deep, but the water was very clear, and you felt pretty safe with the reef keeping any bigger sea life away. In the early morning, we saw whales eating just outside the reef. I couldn't believe that we could see the whales so well from the shore. It was a perfectly pleasant day at the beach. Before we all turned too red, we headed back to the condo, ate dinner, and spent the evening strolling down the boardwalk. Then we made like the monk seal and went to sleep.
