Though extremely satisfied with some good old resort living, we did occasionally hop in the car and explore the rest of the island. Our first adventure was a hike up Diamond Head.
We considered attempting a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center... but decided to save that adventure for future years. Instead we took a trip to the Dole Plantation.
The maze was huge and all kinds of confusing. They had 8 different stations set up through it that you had to find and mark your little paper with. We all divided into pairs and headed into the maze to see who could get done the fastest. We roped Jon with Asher to give all the rest of us a fighting chance. Even after some of the couples got a hold of some maps, they still couldn't find all of the stations.
And some gave up early so they could enjoy another round of Dole Whips. Hard to blame them.
But my competitive side just couldn't give up. And even with Jude strapped to my chest. I came in a very respectable second place, just losing to Jon by mere minutes.
And our last adventure of the trip was to this lookout.
The view looked like this
And from a distance, our group looked like this.
But in all honesty, most of our vacation felt like this...
Still smiling! Stay tuned for our Oahu beach misadventures.
