Basically everything was perfect... From all the wonderful food and sites to the great rest we got after a busy wedding season!
After traveling straight up across the country, and an ocean we landed in Honolulu, Hawaii at 9:30pm their time... Sowe felt like it was 2:30am. We liked the time change though, it got us to bed early and up early. It was a nice change:)
We went to a free breakfast through our traveling agent and got to sign up for some later tours/events. Lunch at BurgerKing... This is when we figured out that everything in Hawaii is so so so expensive! After some shopping and a little time on the beach we went out to Atlantis Steak and Seafood for our first dinner in Hawaii!
Skipped breakfast and headed straight for Diamond Head! We really enjoyed the hike, view, and especially the shaved ice after! We feel like it may be better then SnoBiz! After that fun, HOT morning we had togofor beach/swim pool time! Finally got some underwater camera action :) Then that nightwasthe big Luau!! It was yummy food, a good show, and a great night!
We woke up early and headed for TheBus (public transportation) and started our longggg journey to the Dole Plantation! So the journey to get there wasn't so bad but what followed was... To make a long story short we ended up taking the bus around the whole island enduring a full bus of high school kids, freezing air conditioning, and many many bus stops! When we finally got back we decided to dodinner somewhere close. We went to PF Changs (We're not the most adventurous eaters!)
This was our eating day... Seems like everything we did had to do with food! Haha! First we went to a popular local breakfast place called Eggs N Things! It was super delicious! For lunch we decided to head to another local place we had seen on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives called Rainbow Drive-in! They had the local "plate lunches" and I got a mahimahi one... It was yummy! It was almost a mile and a half walk to get there. Yay, exercise! Some more beach time and then some Cheesecake Factory for dinner... We LOVE food.
Leaving day! Early early went on a tour to Pearl Harbor/USS Arizona Memorial and around the city! When we got back we had to go straight and check out but then had a tonnnn of time before we had to leave for the airport! So then we ate lunch and wondered around for a long time! Finally we found a little Hawaiian/Japanese show that was good! Then it was off to the airport to head home. Our flight left at 10:30pm so we flew through the night and lost lots of time! When we finally got back to San Francisco we headed to Atlanta where we had a four hour layover :(ughhhh! Come to find out when we got back to Huntsville Nick Fairleywason our flight! Such an awesome end to a WONDERFUL honeymoon
