Hawaii, day six

On Sunday we went to church with Cassidy and James. Their building was really cool! The relief society crochets these cute lei's for visitors. I couldn't believe how many visitors they had--apparently lots of vacationers take the time to go to all three hours of church. Those ladies must be really busy crocheting. After church, we went on a drive along the North Shore. We stopped to get shave ice at Matsumoto's. Good thing Cass and James were there to tell us that Matsumoto's is the only place to get shave ice. We got the works on ours--a scoop of vanilla ice cream, azuki beans, and a shot of sweetened condenced milk on the top. Super yum!
We stopped at a beach where sea turtles often sunbathe. Unfortunately, they weren't out that day, although we did spot one in the water.
I don't remember the names of any of these beaches, but we stopped and walked along a few of them. Once again I questioned why any tourists would waste their time on Waikiki, but I guess most of them don't have a car or someone willing to drive them around. And to be fair, Waikiki does have tons of shops and restaurants around, so I can sort of see it's appeal.
Anyway, it was a beautiful day and we had a great time.

Isn't that shave ice the best!! The beans are a little odd, but the sweetened condensed milk is yummy. I love all those beaches along the north shore. So beautiful.

I thought you guys were pretty good sports to go to all 3 hours of church on your Hawaiian vacation. But I'm glad you got to see our pretty building.

Our North Shore drive was fun too. A stop at Matsumoto's is always yummy!
