Beach Day in Waikiki

We're not really beach people.  Some people I know can spend a week lounging in the sand and splashing in the water.  I typically prefer city vacations or exploring areas on foot.  However, every once in a while I like a day lounging on the beach and this was the day.  We walked to one of the public beaches at the end of Fort Derussy Beach Park in Waikiki.  
We set-up our stuff on a narrow strip of sand.
We saw people out and about on these big green water trikes.  We decided to just splash around a bit in the water rather than renting a vehicle.  For this beach, it's a good idea to have water shoes as there were a lot of rocks and sharp coral in the area.
We had lunch at the Shorebird Restaurant nearby.
Look how healthy:  fruit and cottage cheese in a pineapple.
Oh...did I mention the sandwich and fries we shared as well?  Not so healthy but tasty after a day on the water.
We moved further down the beach to a spot near the Sheraton Waikiki.  This beach was much more crowded (particularly with Japanese tourists).  I liked these little kids beach chairs with colorful animals on them.
Once again, we had a great view of Diamond Head as people frolicked in the water.
It was amazing to see the array of people, boats, inner tubes, etc. all occupying nearly the same space.
We concluded our day on the beach and I soon realized another reason that I don't do this very often.  Despite applying and re-applying sunblock religiously throughout the day, I still got a patchy sunburn over my shoulders and back.  It's no fun being pale in the tropics...
