My best friends and I got together to spend the day on the North Shore. These are some of the people whom I’ve been friends with for my entire high school career (and longer) and we always have fun together. We drove countless hours to get to the other side of the island and made our first stop at Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck. Mikayla and I waited over an hour for an overpriced plate of shrimp but it was so worth it by the time we got to Ali‘i Beach. Unfortunately, we didn’t check the surf report before we got there and weren’t allowed to swim in the high swell conditions. Instead of getting in the truck and turning back around, we hung out on the beach until dinner time and ate Ted’s pie before we headed home. The best people + Ted’s made for an excellent day!
