There's a new horse in town and Turtle Bay Resort's employees are pretty giddy about it.
"We are so excited because he is going to be an excellent addition," said Turtle Bay Stables Director Alicia McCumbers.
His name is Boogie, and he's an 11-year-old Quarter Horse Paint Gelding. Boogie was born at Kapualei Ranch on Molokai. He came to the island of Oahu several years ago to train as a rodeo horse in Kahaluu with a young boy.
"He did rodeo but he’s so mellow his previous owner, now 11-years-old seemed to grow out of him. He needed a more rambunctious horse," said McCumbers.
As soon as Boogie saw his new home at Turtle Bay Resort's stables, it was obvious he was pretty giddy to be here too.
You’re in paradise and you’re probably thinking, Beach please! Of course, there are 5 miles of beaches for you to soak in the Hawaiian sun at Turtle Bay. However, we recommend you adventure out to some of our favorite North Shore swimming spots not located on property. That’s because North Shore beaches are among the best on Oahu thanks to their white sand, vivid sea life and crisp, clear waters. Even better, they are located only a short drive from your room at Turtle Bay Resort.
Here's our five favorite North Shore, Oahu beaches:
1. Waimea Bay
