Growing up, Hawaii was not on my radar. It has only been recent years that I realized what a dreamy destination it is. I’ve now been to Oahu but all the islands have received a spot on my bucket list! My one goal when I vacationed there was to see a sea turtle. I had done some research and determined the best places to spot them were on the North Shore and at Hanauma Bay. When I went in October 2017, there were 2 turtles who were loyal Hanauma Bay residents. A staff member told me however that they usually come early in the morning as that was the best time to feed. I went in the late morning, but in typical Natalia fashion, I was stubborn enough to not leave until I spotted one.
