Day 45 - Beach Views

We decided for our third day in Hawaii to give the kids their first experience with snorkeling. Kahalu'u Beach was recommended as a good snorkeling beach for families.

After we showed up we walked around to check out the beach. We found a turtle sunning on the rocks at the edge of the water. I stood behind a chest high wall to sketch him. It wasn't the most comfortable sketching spot, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sketch this guy.

Later in the day I did this sketch of the life guard stand and it's surroundings. It ended up being one of my favorite sketches from the trip

Jennifer, we thought it was pretty cool too. I was surprised that he (she?) came onto the beach with so many people around.

Thank you Li! I'm glad you like him. After I grabbed my pen I thought I should have sketched the turtle with pencil instead. But I was afraid he would swim away if I ran back to get my pencil!
