Hawai’i Farmers’ Markets


On our way back from Diamond Head, we decided to stop by the Saturday Farmer's Market at Kapiolani Community College nearby. I highly recommend it!

Cape Flattery


On our way home from our backpacking trip to Shi Shi Beach, we decided we should visit the northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States, Cape Flattery.

Point of Arches (Olympic National Park)


Honestly, this wasn't a planned part of our backpacking trip to Shi Shi Beach. We saw all of the beautiful rocks jutting out of the water to the south of our camping spot and decided to take a closer look at low tide. Once we returned home, we realized that what we explored is a sight well-known to many: Point of Arches.

Shi Shi Beach (Olympic National Park)


We decided that this year was the year for our kids to have their first backpacking trip, so we settled on where my husband went on his first backpacking trip: Shi Shi Beach.


The hike gently rolls over boardwalks and well-maintained trails. The only difficult bit is toward the end where the trail turns dramatically downward to the beach.
