How Hawaiian Locals End Their Sunday Evening

After a full day of work it’s always nice to come home and enjoy a few minutes of the beach. Like so many in Hawaii after work I like to head over to the beach at home. I don’t even change into anything comfortable I just go as is.

My son Jordan met me at the beach, his office like he calls it. He spends a lot of time on the phone catching up with friends on the mainland, he make all of his personal calls at the beach and research schools for the upcoming semester.

So this is how I will end my evening, it was so needed especially my feet.

Today, I’m off and the beach is calling me, I can hear the waves from my house. Guess what, I plan on enjoying hours in that warm turquoise water and that flawless butter pecan sand. This is one of the best part about living here in Hawaii, having the beach and being able to just love on it all day.

Last week was busy for me so I didn’t spend a lot of time at the beach like I normally do but today I had nothing schedule, and I didn’t schedule anything because I needed that ME TIME.

 

Living in Hawaii I promised myself that I was going to be selfish with my time. I vow to put myself first and all I wanted to do today was be free and just do what I wanted to do and basically that was drink prosecco, create content, and just enjoy myself.

See for yourself…

Hawaii Living: Friday On The Beach In O’ahu Hawaii

img_4265When you get my age Friday nights doesn’t always consist of wearing a freakum dress, 6 inch heels and sweating out the hair on the dance floor.

When living on any island in Hawaii and your over 40’s you will probably catch us sitting on the beach before strutting in a nightclub. Don’t get me wrong if I had family and friends in town then maybe you’ll find me somewhere in Waikiki walking it out.

But for now, my Friday’s consist of me hanging out on the beach at home in Ewa Beach, eating, drinking and enjoying the beautiful turquoise warm water. What I love about our beach is it’s secluded and we have a catering company that comes out on the weekend and sell food, drinks and snacks to the community that live on the beach. This is one of the amenities that sold me on this location. A private beach that I can just walk to. I don’t have to pay to go on the beach, if I wanted to drive a few steps I wouldn’t have to pay to park my car. The weekdays are usually empty so it’s like having the beach to myself. On the weekend I see more traffic but still not what you would see in Waikki. The beach is so big that everyone can just spread out and find a spot and still feel like you’re alone.

Today I only wanted the fancy grilled cheese sandwich with chips and a Blue Mermaid. I enjoyed the Blue Mermaid before so this time I ordered 2. So, I didn’t have to get my lazy ass up to get another.

Finally Prince Charming came to join me, his evening right after work consist of going to the gym or running 2 miles around the lagoon. Then he showers and join me on the beach. Not a shabby Friday, right?

A Beautiful Sunday In Oahu Hawaii

 

 

img_3726Aloha 🤙🏾🌸🌺 such a beautiful morning. I started my day at home in Ewa Beach just walking the beautiful tranquil beach that I’m blessed and grateful to have access to.  I’m trying to start a Sunday morning routine here in Hawaii. Waking up, walking on the beach, collecting my thoughts 💭being mindful having ME TIME with myself and GOD sounds like a plan.

Today the fam and I are going to go check out the Surf Grom in Waikiki. Definitely sounds like fun, I just want to attend any and every event that I can. I wanna be where the Hawaii locals are and  learn genuinely learn the culture because I’m now going to calling Hawaii home.

I was so impressed today with the young surfer kids who were all so talented working the surfboard like pro’s out on the beach. I was schooled on what a GROM was, it’s a young kid, usually under the age of 15, that likes to surf or skateboard I also learned some new surfer lingo and slang today. Surfing In The Pocket means The pocket is the most powerful part of the wave, just ahead of where the wave is breaking. It was actually cool just watching these boys & girls do their thing out there.

On our way back from the Surf Grom we took a scenic route back home on Kalaniana’ole Hwy in Hawaii’Kai. What a beautiful view that every shot I captured looked like a picture from a postcard.

As you can see we haven’t gotten enough of being outside and being on the beach that when we got home we dropped our bags and went back to the beach to unwind and relax. Jordan ordered a ceasar salad and of course I got a Blue Mermaid and we will just sit here until the sun goes down. Living in Hawaii is really cool, having access to all this I feel like I won the lottery.
