As much as I love California, take that, multiply it by 20 and you have Hawaii. This place just rules; there's absolutely nothing not to like. I've been to Hawaii several times in the past but never the famous North Shore of Oahu. I must say, it rules.

We met up with some friends from Marin earlier in the day and checked out some of the world's most famous surf spots (Sunset Beach, Pipeline) before settling on a small break for the kids. I went out there and attempted to surf -- poorly. Very poorly. It isn't as easy as it looks but it sure is fun.

We are staying at Turtle Bay, which is the hotel in the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It's an interesting spot. Yesterday they were concluding an LPGA event (local girl Michelle Wie lost on the back nine) and today they are shooting episodes of The MTV show The Hills. My Wife is in heaven; it's her favorite reality show. Tonight we were in the backdrop for a dinner scene. In my opinion, it was utter nonsense; there must have been 20-30 production assistants running around, most doing nothing. Apparently they are here all week, so I am sure I'll have some good stories.

That's it for now. It's been along day and I need to put the kids to sleep. Will try to post some pictures in the morning.
