I love sitting on the beach. I like watching the water, the clouds, the people, and the wildlife. This was a great beach and a nice, relaxing day.

Haleiwa and the North Shore
On Monday, K and I drove up through the center of the island to the North Shore area. During the winter, this is the area that surfers go for the really big waves, but during the summer, it is just a great place to see. The center of the island is where pineapples and sugarcane are grown, although we didn't see any sugarcane (not that I would recognize it if I saw it). We stopped at the Dole Plantation, although we had little interest in going on a tour (I hate pineapple and I have moral oppositions to Sanford Dole, the plantation system in general and the subsequent takeover of Hawaii...). I took a couple of pictures, but my friend Stacie has a much better description (and far better pictures) here. This is a decorative pineapple, by the way.
