So for Thanksgiving, we got the awesome opportunity to travel to the Big Island. It blew my mind in so many ways. The beach was a joy to swim in, with waters so clear during the afternoon that scuba diving was a paradise of color. We also got to walk over weeks old lava in the moonlight and watch lava spewing into the ocean to create new earth. The valleys were so spectacular it looks like you’re peering into Jurassic park.
I remember feeling all my anxiety melt away as I wade into the ocean, surrounded by crystal blue waters. When the sun started to set, and I was the only person in sight, I felt so content and grateful.
Here are my husband and me, lolling around in the sand and pleasant waters of the Pacific.
