The closest beach to our hotel was ‘A Bay’, which is located right on the property of the Waikoloa Marriott. We know that nearby Hapuna Beach is more beautiful, secluded and swim friendly, but we didn’t really feel like schlepping all our stuff and an 11-month old all the way there. We got all the benefits of a beach day, without the hassle at A Bay. It was a beautiful morning.
Oh hey, Pacific Ocean! Don’t you look pretty!
As much as she loved being in the Ocean (for the first time!!), she liked the shore better so she could feel the waves lap her little feet.
As much as we loved being at the Ocean, there wasn’t much shade and it was HOT.
So after a couple of hours, we packed up and headed back to our hotel pool which has an abundant of umbrellas. You can’t go to Hawaii and not go to the beach! But we thought with Adele being so young, it was more fun at the pool.
I can’t wait for a year or two from now when she’ll get excited about sand castles and shell collecting. Hopefully we have a little beach baby in the making.
