I’m happy to report that Perry and I woke up alive and well this morning – no hangovers, so yay for something resembling a sensible approach to alcohol consumption. 🙂 Today, Steve and Michael arrived in the mid-morning so we dragged them around for a while to see the sights until their room was ready. We spent a bit of time at Waikiki beach – the water was so blue it looked like it had been photoshopped. It also felt like,someone had turned the sun up to ‘scorching’ – very warm out there but so far the sunscreen is holding up OK. In the afternoon Perry and I walked through the International Marketplace – I.e. a rabbit warren of little stalls designed to part tourists from their money. It’s all good fun though – we did end up getting an amazing pineapple juice though. The process they followed was basically as follows: They grabbed two pineapple from the shelf, cut the tops off, cored the inside, cut out the remaining pineapple flesh, and put it straight in a blender. Once done they poured the contents back into the pineapple, and added a straw. That’s it. You really couldn’t get much fresher than that. Sure enough, it tasted fantastic – cold pineapple on a hot day.. Very Hawaiian, I guess Dinner was at “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, proving yet again that even small servings are massive. Then after a brief wander through the shops it was back to Hula’s to enjoy a “Welcome to Hawaii” drink for Steve and Michael. I guess these daily entries will become shorter and shorter as we do less and less – but sometimes doing less and less is what a holiday is all about.
