(i have loads of pictures of plants and flowers so i'll spare you most of them...)
USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
visiting Sitani's grave in the valley of the temples
the dole plantation. yeah, maybe we're just dumb, but we were both under the impression that pineapples grew underground. don't ask why. haha. but this was a shock for us. made a LOT more sense. random, but did you know that one pineapple takes 2 years to grow! and then the second one on the same plant can take up to 2 MORE years! and the plant only produces twice! crazy!
dave with his favorite plant... (that's cocoa, btw.)pineapple DELICIOUSNESS!
and these little guys are everywhere! they were on the walls at the house even. they eat the bugs and are super harmless...but can get noisy sometimes...
nu'uanu pali lookout. AMAZING!
Halona Blow-Holechinaman's hateast-side coast line...right before i got SOAKED! much of hhe highway on the east side is RIGHT against the water and when the tide was high it splashed up onto the road. SUPER freaky to drive but GORGEOUS!the Laie LDS temple. SO pretty!
one final goodbye to such a wonderful vacation. don't worry, hawaii. we'll be back. soon, i hope!
