Hawaii trip

February 27, 2006 @ 12:04 By: gordon Category: Travelling

Earlier this month, Kathy and I went to Hawaii for 8 days. We stayed in Waikiki Beach in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. For the first half of the trip, we rented a Jeep and did a lot of sightseeing, including visiting the Dole Plantation, Hanauma Bay and driving most of the north shore of the island. We also climbed Diamond Head, a volcanic crater at the east end of Waikiki. For much of the 20th century, it was a military command post with fire battery control stations defending Honolulu.

We also did some geocaching and spent the last half of the trip on Waikiki beach in front of the Hale Koa hotel. Some of the highlights included going parasailing and taking a ride on one of the Atlantis submarines.

I took a fair number of pictures which I haven’t put online yet.
