Matt and I spent 10 days in Hawaii courtesy of Delta’s booking algorithm meltdown. Here is our 1 and bit weeks in pictures…
Aloha! We landed in Honolulu and were lei’d by our lovely hosts.
We went to the Dole pineapple factory.
Left – I’m still a long way from home. Right – our gracious hosts, Emily and Nate.
Then we went to Turtle Beach (on the North Shore), where the sea turtles come up on the beach every day to eat.
Not a lot to see here apart from annoying tourists who couldn’t read signs saying “Keep your distance from turtles”
We climbed Diamond Head which is a huge dormant volcano. I don’t recommend going to do this activity wearing anything else but gym clothes and sneakers.
Then this helicopter came out of nowhere….
…and flew right over us…
…and landed at this little helipad.
Hot, sweaty and gross – but unreal view.
Going back down wasn’t so much fun either.
The next day we went on the Star of Honolulu -a very cheesy, touristy dinner cruise. At the dock we were treated to welcome entertainment by some beautiful ladies and hunky gents.
The dancers had cool props that they shook with unabated skill.
What grand fun!
Picture perfect Nate and Emily on the deck at sunset.
Meanwhile, the wind was whipping up a frenzy and my hair looked like this in every photo. Gah. Not a hair out of place on Matt’s head as you can see.
On Friday, we went down and tooled around in Waikiki on the beach and around the shops.
Without warning, these epic storm clouds appeared but spared us a Hawaiian storm.
Mahalo Hawaii! It sure was fun xo
