Pedicure? I Don't Know...This Seems a Little Fishy

Back in June, we went over to the island of Lana'i for a little birthday/anniversary R&R. We stayed at The Lodge at Koele, which is beautiful; it's located upcountry, in the middle of the island, so it's a little bit cooler and rainier, there are lots of trees, and it feels very country. Its sister property Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay is the total opposite; it's still beautiful, but it's down on the beach--oceanfront, hot, sunny, and probably more along the lines of what people think about when they think about a resort in Hawai'i. On our last day, we took the shuttle from our hotel down to Manele and walked the length of the beach over to where there are some little tide pools. I sat down and stuck my feet in the water while Hubby went off in explorer mode. He always just wants to know what's over there. Me? I'm happy to find a nice spot and stay there. Like this:

There were all kinds of little fish in the tide pool, and I knew from previous experience that if I sat still long enough they might come over and start nibbling on me. And, hey, after all the money we'd just spent at the resort, if I could get some free exfoliation, I was going to take it! It took a while, but I finally found the exact right foot placement to entice my little gang of exfoliators. For some reason, completely submerged feet are not interesting, but if you keep the tops of your feet just barely under the surface of the water, that seems to do the trick. 

This probably seems a little weird, but I didn't have to tip anyone, and this was definitely the best view I've ever had during a pedicure!

You're making me miss Hawaii with these pictures. Not that it is hard to do, it is my favorite. But, I'd go without the fish chewing on my feet. :)

LOL-Well, it's not like they were taking big chunks out, just getting all the dead skin that was sloughed to the surface by walking on the sand! :)
