DAY 5 – Destination Oahu, March 2013


DAY 5 – Easter Saturday in Waikiki and we experienced a Hawaiian Farmers Market (not much different to our local one really), except for the beautiful exotic flowers and the coconut drink straight from the coconut!

Then we took the ‘Red Line’ on the Waikiki Trolley and saw an overview of what’s on offer in another part of Waikiki. We will explore this area more indepth another day! The kids were feeling rather restless this particular trolley ride so they spiced it up by ‘being noticed’ and yelling out ‘Aloha’ and doing the ‘Hang Loose’ signal to passers-by. The Trolley Driver was amused, we and other passengers were amused, and MOST passers by we’re amused – of course there were the usual token party poopers!

Then we went and discovered ‘Walmart’ – I felt like I was living in an American Movie with Pop Tarts, Sodas, Apple Jacks, Tootie Frooties, Yarn, Peanut Butter & Jelly lining the shelves. I loved it! We stocked up on lots of snacks hoping to save us lots of $$$$$. We even purchased a car seat for Kobi for $45. Cheaper than paying $15 per day for car seat hire when we hire a car for 22 days on the other islands!

After a long day of sight-seeing, what do you do? Hang out on Waikiki Beach! So that’s what we did. Kids are loving the bodysurfing! Tonight we also discovered some sea turtles living outside the Sheraton Waikiki. We saw about 5 of them. That was pretty awesome. Now for an early night as we are intending to experience an Easter Sunrise service on Waikiki Beach at 6.30am…., then an Easter Egg hunt at our hotel at 9.30am
