Another beautifully sunny day, starting with a buffet breakfast at a nearby hotel, and a lovely chat with our server Florence. Florence greeted us all, poured our coffee and made us feel welcome. During the conversation she was telling us that, a while ago, she had a wonderful holiday through 11 different countries in Europe … It was a celebration for her 79th birthday! So good on her for still being up and at ’em! The main aim of today was shopping – the Waikele Outlet Centre. It was a little way out of town – not that anything is too far away on this little island, but I found a shuttle bus service that got us there for $10, instead of an estimated $50 taxi fare each way. So the bargains were rolling in even before we started shopping :). We all spent a good few hours there buying this and that – by this stage I may end up needing another suitcase to put it all in… After we returned and dumped the spoils of today’s outing back at the hotel, I took off for a wander around the main tourist drag of Waikiki. I found the hotel I stayed in on my first visit to Hawaii, some 21 years ago now! It’s actually looking better now than it did in 1992 – I guess it’s gone through quite a number of facelifts since then. Dinner tonight was at Chili’s, a chain restaurant that serves, of course, ridiculously sized portions – even after ordering one of the “lite choice” meals I was completely stuffed to the gills. The evening ended, just for a change, with a couple of drinks at Hula’s.
