Some fun in the sun activities

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

At the Fairmont Orchid there are lots of activities you can take part in!  For instance, a 1 time payment of $65/person will give you access to the Fun & Sun Activity Pass.  Good for your entire stay at the Fairmont Orchid.  Things included in the Fun & Sun Activity pass are, snorkels, masks and fins, soft-top surf boards, kayaks and even small fishing nets.  You can also take introduction classes on how to surf, how to snorkel, tide pool excursions and more!


The Fairmont Orchid also is home to the Orchid “Beachboys”.  Don’t forget to go visit them at the Beach Shack.  They “Beachboys” also offer kayaking/snorkeling tours, fishing, and surf lessons.  Activities are on request, by appointment only.  Contact the Beach Shack (808-887-7524) for reservations and pricing.

And the dress shopping is over!  That’s right, I purchased my wedding dress last night.  One more thing done.  Now I just have to sit back as patiently as possible and wait for it to be be made, shipped and delivered.  Off to the next thing on the list!

We’re booked, are you?!?

Corey and I are booked.  Plane ticket and hotel.

We’ll be arriving on the 16th, do not feel obligated to arrive that soon as your presence is not required until the 18th!  We’ll be leaving on the 25th after spending some quality time with the beach, sand, and a few Mai Tai’s.

What are your travel plans?  We like comments so tell us what you are doing!

Sydney and I became friends during a field trip to The Big Island of Hawaii. Here is a group picture of all of us near South Point.
