So, it took some convincing today, but Natalee and I took off to the windward side of the island and rented a sea kayak. I know what you are thinking...I've done that and it was lame and frustrating, etc., etc. Well, that's because you didn't know what you were doing, or maybe because you didn't have anywhere to go. I agree, sea kayaking down the coast doesn't make any sense and probably isn't any fun. But, Nat and I went out about 2 miles to a bird sanctuary island called the Mokulas. We walked around, snorkeled (we saw a sea turtle), and ate lunch staring at the beautiful island of Oahu. Then we headed back in and Natalee almost dumped the boat over trying to jump in. All in all, we didn't have any mishaps and it was a great day. Then we came back and played in the pool for a couple hours. Tomorrow morning we are going to get up early and head to Pear Harbor. Apparently Natalee's grandpa was in the Air Force and she said she'll feel like a bad American if she doesn't go, so we're going. Then we will fly out and get back in to DFW at 5am...then we'll try to stay up all day so we can go to sleep at a normal hour. I'm so, so, so glad I'm taking off Monday as well. See y'all soon.
Here's the view from our island to OahuMe and Natalee on the way back to the leeward side

Ironically enough, there was lots of birds on the bird sanctuary island...
