This was the view from our hotel balcony, or lanai as they call them in Hawaii. Paradise...
"Ocean Front" is definitely the way to go. Well, at least once in your life.
We stayed in Waikiki.
But we rented a car so we could drive around the island. We saw some whales off of the coast.
We drove to the North Shore and watched surfers in Waimea Bay. Dude...those were some impressive waves!
We visited the Dole Plantation and toured the gardens. This is actually a very small pineapple.
And of course we relaxed. You can't see the Blue Hawaii drink I'm enjoying here. And note that I'm wearing Bonita, the tank top I knit.
