{Hawaii 2013}: Dole and Temple

We couldn't go all the way to Hawaii without having fresh pineapple from Dole!

 They had thousands and thousands of pineapple plants on their farms and all were planted by hand.  That blew my mind right there.

 The plants and flowers are so gorgeous, you think they are fake!

 This was delish.  I would have one daily if I could.

 This is a little beach we ventured off and found.  The waves weren't nearly as rough as on sunset beach, so we were able to snorkle.  It was scary to me at first (trying to relax enough to snorkle) AND you don't see anything cool unless you swim over the "dark spots" in the water.  Which is just coral but it scared me to death.  

I was having a hard time getting the hang of it so I took a break.  Kevin soon came running in claiming he saw turtles!  I was like "what the fudge?" so I put on my big girl pants and went back out with him.  We kept following little "dory" like fishes until low and behold we saw a huge sea turtle!  AHH!  Then 5 or so more.  It was surreal.  They didn't even mind us being there.

 One evening we went up to see the temple.  Little did we know that you could rent clothes there!  I would have packed some sunday clothes dang it.  We went to the visitor center and spoke with the sister missionaries for a while, watched a video, then strolled the grounds.  It seems unfair to have a temple AND

 I am not even sure what these trees are acutally called.  But I call them "lost" trees.  From the show "LOST" which I loved.  
 Drove back just in time for sunset.

I tend not to create many remarks, however after reading through a few of the comments here "Hawaii 2013: Dole and Temple".
I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it simply me or do a few of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to
post. Could you list of all of your social sites like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?
