The Powells and Perkins' scheduled the Ka'anapali ziplining adventure for their 5th day on the island. Since Chris and I ziplined on our last visit, we chose not to do it again (for budgetary reasons). Instead, Chris scheduled an "early bird" parasail trip. Neither one of us could agree on his designated "flight" time, so we called in the morning to confirm. When we called at 8:15 a.m., they told us that his "flight" was at 9 a.m. and he was supposed to check-in by 8:30! Yikes! We quickly got ourselves put together and hurried to the beach. Chris barely made it on time. I had to park in a parking garage way up the beach and speed-walk to the launching site. I arrived just before Chris got on the boat to go out. I wanted to ride with him, but the company charges $30 just to ride in the boat... so I stayed ashore.
During the hour Chris was gone, I hunted for sea glass on the beach. I thought that I would be lucky to just find one piece, but I actually found quite a stash -- including one white piece that is about half the size of a playing card! Finding sea glass is like finding a little treasure. I had to wade into the ocean at the areas where the water was washing up medium to large sized rocks and search on the ground between waves to retrieve the pieces. It's a challenge, but I really enjoyed my "treasure hunt"!

While we were parasailing, hunting for sea glass, and meeting celebrities... the zipliners were having a grand ol' time. I'm not going to post much about it so that Emily can blog all about it on her site: http://perksspot.blogspot.com/. Suffice it to say that there is a video of Josh and a video of Dad that kept us all laughing for about half an hour. :)
That evening, we decided to eat dinner on the beach at Leilani's. As the sun was setting, we went out to the beach and took pictures of each couple using the perfect sunset lighting. I think the photographs turned out pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. :) And it saved us $100 on having a professional do the same thing! I tried to get a little artsy with some of the photos, and then I even had us and the Perkins' do a High School Musical-style jump.
