Dear Hawaii, You win! You took a girl who always thought you were a bunch of hype and have converted me with your beauty in two days. Thanks for your gorgeous landscape, waterfalls, wild weather, fresh road side pineapple, green sand beaches and rest filled spirit. I look forward to the week ahead. With Joy, CCB #Godissoooocreative#greensandbeachhawaii#fairmontorchidhawaii
And on the third day of the Faheys’ Big Island adventure, we had breakfast in Captain Cook with some geckos on the railing, then went down to South Point, the southernmost tip of the United States (Matt was brave enough to jump off the cliff, and I fear death too much so I stayed up top). We then ventured over to Green Sand Beach, one of only four beaches in the world with green sand. And, if you’re wondering, those are indeed the same Chacos I wore on our wedding day. #southpointhawaii#greensandbeachhawaii#bigisland
#Olivine paradise 💚 Green sand beach is officially known as “Papakōlea beach” (after the kōlea bird often seen behind the beach) and “Mahana beach” (after the cinder cone responsible for the green color of the beach). The 3rd name is also the newest nickname: “Green Sand Beach“ #hawaii#greensandbeachhawaii
Sitting at home with a healing ankle remembering how the hike to this incredible green sand beach was a reality just days ago. The sand is made green by a mineral called olivine. Up close the green sand glitters and glows in the sunlight. Swimming in this cove is like taking a bath in this mineral. It feels so divine and I am grateful to have gotten to spend time with the land and the sea in this intimate way. Thanks @themedicinecircle and @ojofarm for encouraging us.
