I loved the bread and the papaya dressing. We decided next to completely shift gears and headed to the Pearl Harbor monument. It's always a neat experience and very moving.
(I promise we really did take it seriously.)
Did you know that the USS Arizona still leaks oil?
An actual anchor from the USS Arizona (I think that's where it was from but I could be wrong):
Next I wanted to work up a bit of a sweat so we headed to Diamond Head Crater. It is a short hike (only 1.6 miles round trip) but it is straight up hill at the end and can get a bit intense. I was quite proud of myself because I only got winded the last staircase. I have running to thank for my endurance and stamina. :) Anyway, my hubby complained almost the whole time but he did it! And it was hard! So I was proud of him. The view is spectacular, one of the best on the island. So worth the horrible staircases.
Three cheers for no makeup!
We made it!
Not the greatest photo of Waikiki at night, but not bad for a cell phone pic.
