I think that sometimes, when life is getting crazy and you have so much going on that you can’t even think straight, that is exactly when you need to have a day date on the beach. Or sometimes, you just have a Groupon that’s about to expire and you have to use it. Either way.
I love day dates. I love spending a whole day with Nick out in the sun, eating a long lunch and wandering around. Plus, we are home in time to get in our pjs and watch Netflix.
Nick’s been so busy with his MBA program lately, so his weekends are completely filled up with homework. But since we had a Groupon for Ola at Turtle Bay that was about to expire, Nick decided to throw caution to the wind and take a Saturday to take a long drive, eat some good food, and relax.
We had been to Ola for dinner a few times, and I wrote about our anniversary weekend at Turtle Bay here, but we had never been for lunch.
What I love about Ola is that you can sit with your feet in the sand, look out at the ocean, and eat lots of good food made with local ingredients. Ola is Hawaiian for “life, living, healthy and alive” and they really make you feel that way.
