The Adventures of Flat Stanley

My six year old niece sent Flat Stanley to us this week. If you don’t know about Flat Stanley, google him. He’s a paper boy that gets shipped all over the place, has his photo taken in different places, then gets shipped back to the elementary school where he started. I am taking Stanley around Hawaii and making notes for his journal back in Virginia.
Today we went to one of my favorite beaches here in Hawaii. It’s on the windward (east) side of the island. The sand is perfect, the waves are great for boogie boarding and the view is amazing.
I hate to admit that we haven’t been to the beach in a long time. As I sat there on the beach, then braved the cool water to hit some waves, I wondered, why don’t we do this more often? We only have around two months left here and I’m going to take advantage of the beautiful island I may never see again.
Enjoy these photos of Flat Stanley. He had a great day at the beach too. He’s napping now, still a little jet lagged from his long trip.

In the car, driving up to the beach.
