FC: Hawaii 2007 Oahu and Maui Oahu and Maui
1: The first day began early...pre-dawn early with a 5:15am flight from Oahu to Maui. I've got chubby cheeks b/c I've got some bagel in my mouth.
2: The Road to Hana was an interesting day trip. From spitballs, to lonely dog guarding private road, to road-blocking constructions, it was full of surprises and wonders. The poor student driver learning how to drive on this road.
3: First waterfall opportunity at Hanawi Falls. Still cold and drizzly at 9am.
4: Sun finally broke through by the time we got to Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach.
6: Wailua Falls, Maui
8: It was so windy at 7 Sacred Pools! I think I almost toppled over a few times.
10: 7 Sacred Pools felt like the destination of this roadtrip because we headed back to Kahului after leaving this gorgeous place.
11: Yay! My sorta-secret, hidden waterfall.
12: Oooh, my first malasada from Leonard's Bakery! | Actually, it became my first two malasadas since just one wasn't enough.
13: My first Hawaiian shave ice from Waiola (on McCully). We unanimously agreed that this location has finer, more fluffy shave ice than the Waiola on Kapahulu. Hooray for hole-in-the-wall places!
14: When we hit up Wal-mart and Costco, we stocked up on chocolate-covered macadamia nuts...and other junk food essentials. How could we not? Look at Wal-mart's display!
15: Germaine's Luau Is it just me or are their complimentary cocktails quite strong?
16: The jump-off rock at Waimea Bay, North Shore which I did NOT jump off, but 3 of my friends did.
18: I probably shouldn't be smiling in a photo taken at Pearl Harbor, but it was such a sunny and breezy day that I couldn't help it.
19: USS Arizona Memorial
20: I learned how to surf! Surfing >>> Snowboarding
21: He also learned how to surf!
22: Wayne Gabaylo, the spray-paint artist of Art In Motion | http://www.aimhawaii808.net/
23: view from top of Diamond Head
25: the Diamond Head hikers!
26: Hanauma Bay I got a nasty tan line from snorkeling too long, a number of bruises and scrapes on my legs, and a bunch of underwater pictures that didn't turn out well. But all in all, what an experience!
27: Aww, our last night in Hawaii...so we drank a whole lotta pitchers of beer. My rosy complexion is a combination of sun exposure from snorkeling and Asian glow (although, the latter is probably the major contributing factor).
