What Norman Rockwell would have painted on Oahu's North Shore

I love my Hawaii, while photographing a family visiting from Canada a honu (turtle) crawled from the sea to bask in the last little bit of the sun's warmth for the day. I love how at first the kids ran over to see the honu, but quickly became more interested in the sand. You can't create moments like this, they just happen when they are supposed to and your are blessed.
