Off to Wailua Fresh and Haleiwa Beach. Just another beautiful day in Hawaii

It was a good morning to drive out to Wailua and Haleiwa. Though it is the dead of winter here in Hawaii, it is quite sunny and warm. So Nico and I, his best friend John Mark and his mother headed out to Wailua Fresh.

After picking up some wonderful freshly grown, GMO free vegetables and fruit we headed out on an adventure. We had been told about a monastery that was way in the back of the Waianae mountain range. The kicker was we would have to drive through the rumored Monsanto fields. Or better known as the Frankenseed industry. So we headed out.

According to the directions we were given, this must have been the Monsanto  fields. The road was very rocky so it took us quite a time to get up to the next set of gates. But where was the gate leading to the monastery? We were told to stop at the gates and wait. A monk would come out and show us around.

The only thing we saw was a sign that said Orchid farm no trespassing. But I could not resist the opportunity to jump out of the car and take a photo of the North Shore. What a view. There was a wonderful paved road just ahead and I was so tempted to continue on (it turned out that the paved road was the way there)to see if the monastery was around the bend.

But I didn’t want to take a chance of getting into trouble. So I took one last photo and we hopped in the car and headed to the beach.

We stopped at the bakery and bought some wonderful, fresh, inexpensive pastries and sat in the park to eat them.

We walked along Haleiwa Beach

We watched the building waves. The beginning of an expected huge surf.

The boys gathered shells and coral and ran around for awhile. Though we never found the monastery ( I will another time, I’m determined) we still had a wonderful day. The boys got to play together one last time before heading back to school tomorrow.

And I can’t wait to make my smoothies in the morning with my fresh Wailua fruits.
