We’ve got a somewhat unique benefit here in that our local girl Aina lives near a lake on the mainland and when she comes home to Hawaii she’s near the ocean. If you’ve enjoyed time on a lake I can tell you that the only things lakes and oceans have in common is that they are both bodies of water. For those of you that are “Water people”, you’ll enjoy reading through Aina’s “4 Ways Oceans are Different from Lakes” writeup.
