Our family vacation this year was a week in Hawaii at the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's North Shore. It was only possible because Brian was the chairman of the Calorimetry Conference here, and, as a result, we were given the royal treatment. We love this location away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It is billed as "True Hawaii" and is indeed beautiful.

One of our favorite things to do is to hike through the nearby "jungle".
Our first stop is the old bunker with lots to discover along the way.
Next up is the Banyan Trees (where some LOST episodes were filmed.)
Finally, we make it to "our" private beach.
Eventually we were all out there treading water. And, I must say it was heavenly having everyone old enough to enjoy the ocean at the same time and in the same way. As luck would have it, though, both Kellie and Abby were stung by something as they neared the shore.

It's still a bit of paradise.
