As much as we had a great time, I am very ready to go home!

Hawaii, Day 5

Seems odd our time is kinda coming to a close. Last night after I wrote we decided on a trip to the beach, where we waded joyously in the soothing ocean waves.

Hawaii, Day 4

I will make this short because I am on the Android while Morgan watches hockey. Saw great Lost stuff today, ate wonderful pineapple, and hiked to a waterfall and down a beach. I am now sitting on the balcony of our room. I do not want to leave!

Hawaii, Day 3

Second beach camp: Lost film location

Addition from Day 2...

Today we slept in a little (slept off the luau drinks, I spose!), and then headed up to North Shore after eating a couple sandwiches here in the hotel room. It rained some today, but we got some great beach time just as well. The North Shore is the most beautiful part of Oahu we've seen so far, though the southeast shore isn't bad either. Up on the north part of the island are the bigger swells, the serious surfers. 

The towns seem dirt poor, however, mostly farmers. We drove past some pineapple farms and saw plenty of coconut trees. 

We got out at a few beaches and took some photos and waded around.

I'm uploading some good photos from today and yesterday to Flickr. At one point we went by this sugar mill, and drove to the entrance and took a couple photos. I should've gone further in, as we found out later today that was where they fimed Eko's Nigerian village in Lost.

Hawaii, Day 2

Koko Crater Botanical Gardens

Today was pretty long, so I'll keep this short!

Hawaii, Day 1

Recognize these cliffs? From a few scenes in Lost!

We arrived safely last night at Honolulu's airport around 10:00 or so. The night was great. The  ticketing agent in Bellingham gave us exit aisle seats both for the way down here and the way home. Sam drove us through the border to Bellingham, and the border was fast. Morgan's dad and Randi are staying at our place watching the cat.
