Time for another ‘Road’ Trip – this time to Hawaii. After a very long flight we arrived in Honolulu mid afternoon on a Saturday. Rather than going straight to the hotel, we opted to head west pats Waianae to go to Kaena Point. On the way we were greeted with this great Rainbow, keeping with one of the nicknames of the state – the Rainbow State.
Eventually we made it to Keawaula Beach. Our first views of Hawaii looked like the postcards.
Cars and trucks lined every available space as the locals and tourists alike were enjoying the beautiful day.
We passed numerous people fishing.
As we made our way back toward Honolulu we passed the Makua Valley.
A brief stop at Makahal Beach Park.
And it was on to the city. With a metro population of almost a million people in a very small area, Honolulu was crowded and busy. We were surprised to find a 10 lane freeway through parts of the city.
Our hotel was at the south end of Kapi’olani Park, with views back toward Waikiki, and the famed beach.
The surrounding hillsides were covered in houses, except where the land is restricted.
One final view for the day – a close up of the Waikiki Hotels.
