Magical Beach Breakfast

Last weekend I sailed with a group of friends to the magical island of Lanai. This is one of the most amazing places on planet earth. I'm biased of course. I woke up to the pinkest sky with the most beautiful sunrises. We all camped in style. There was hot tea (about 10 varieties). We had 2 varieties of French Toast, even homemade challah bread and whole wheat bread with organic eggs and maple syrup. There was fresh chai with soy milk and someone brought the most amazing tapioca pudding made with almond milk and coconut milk. There was smoked salmon and luscious tomatoes. There was a feast. It was a wonderful experience to be able to share this breakfast.
Experiences are what make me appreciate life. It's the moments that take my breath away. It's about food, friends, and natural beauty. I have been learning to appreciate as many of the little things in life as I can. And I will say I have not appreciated French Toast and Tapioca as much as I did on this morning. The sand on my feet. The taste of hot chai. The moment of being at this beach at the crack of dawn. And then when the dolphins! If there is more to life please let me know! :)

The beach at Manele Bay is probably one of the most pristine in the world. The Four Seasons has a hotel there. Its luxury beaching at its finest. Look carefully at the picture above. You'll see a group of spinner dolphins, and one spinning! There were about 100 beautiful dolphin angels in the bay.
Magic happens when you open your eyes and peer into the world of the deep blue.
