Sperm Whale YUCK!

Today we did something that not many people would EVER want to do.......this was the most DISGUSTING and awful SMELLING thing I have ever experienced!! It all started yesterday when we over heard some boys talking about the dead decaying sperm whale. The first thing that went through my mind was that is so disgusting.....but the more I heard the more I wanted to see it for myself. We asked them how they got there and how long of a walk it was....they said it was down the coast of Turtle Bay and it was only about a 1 mile hike!! So I was like 1 mile thats not bad at all I can handle that. So this morning we set off for our 1 mile hike to the decaying sperm whale.......after about 2 hours and 9000 miles later we finally made it.....there it was, in all it's GINORMOUS glory.......I couldn't believe my eyes all that flubber floating was was a mix between rotten onions, B to the O, and any other thing that smells nasty.....I thought I was going to throw up I couldn't stand it! I wouldn't recommend ever hiking to a ROTTEN sperm whale!! Now I sit on the couch and I can still smell the rotten smell in my nose holes!! I don't think my life will ever be the same are a few pictures to show you what I seen......if i could only add the smell for you so you could get a little taste of what i went through today!

Hawaii Baby!

My 2 best friends, Megan and Tara, came out to Hawaii to visit....we have been on some crazy adventures and have had the bestest time ever! I'm so glad I got to share this time with them it means a lot to me!!

We went surfing in the International Market place....that was really fun but I was scared we were going to drown haha!!

We spent the day at Waikiki and we all got matching Pearl rings and went shopping and had so much fun playing on the Buddha lady!

Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay that was really fun we seen lots of cool fish...we didn't see any sea turtles so I was a little sad about that!!

Aaahhhh sitting on top of the the Buddha lady's head!!
