Hawaii Trip

My wife surprised me with a trip to Oahu this January for a combo birthday gift.  This was my first trip back for 35 years!  She did an awesome planning job.  We stayed right on the beach on the North Shore at Three Table beach and listened to the pounding surf day and night.  We were a 5 minute walk to Waimea Bay where we walked and swam in the morning.  We snorkled at Shark's cove and Turtle bay and surfed Chuns and Haleiwa too, and spend a day with my cousins in Kalihi.  Here are a few pics.

 Super small surf at Haleiwa.  
 New friends Steve Andreas (from Carlsbad of all places) and legendary Buttons K. Even Steph looks stoked!  Steve and Buttons run a surf adventure business on the North Shore.
