Well rested, we set out for some island exploration!
We drove a crazy-winding road (Tanalus Rd.) to a beautiful overlook of Honolulu.
Then we took a hike through a forest that they used to film some of Jurassic Park.
The hike ended in a lovely waterfall (Manoa Falls).
The adjoining park had trails that were a never-ending tropical garden.
Amazing flowering plants by the thousands! Enjoy the walk!
We then drove to the other side of the island (it's a small island!!)
Lanikai Beach view:
Then it was time for some dinner! We found a marina restaurant near the KoKo crater.
I had some "Poke" - pronounced PO - KAY. It's a traditional Hawaiian dish with veggies and raw fish cubes. It was yummy!
