Just chillin' on a cloudy day

believe itâ€™s cloudy?!?! I have had Honolulu weather displayed on my computer at
work every day for two years and itâ€™s hardly ever cloudy, but today itâ€™s
cloudy. Never mind, cloudy day in paradise, itâ€™s still paradise. :)
There is not
much on the agenda for today, we are moving hotels, I had booked us into the
Sheraton Princess Kaiulani for our entire stay, but because we decided to leave
a day early chose to rough it for the night at the Sheraton Waikiki.
down for breakfast in the restaurant by the pool The Ocean Terrace, where I
enjoyed half a papaya with a wedge of lemon, and Mel had poached eggs with hash
brown and a slice of pineapple and of course, both of us enjoyed a cup or two
of delicious Kona coffee.
As soon as we had settled into our digs for the rest of the week, Mel realised she had left something behind in the other hotel, so we walked back to get it. Once retrieved we stopped for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, you may be surprised to learn there is more on their menu than cheesecake, but boy is there a lot of cheesecake.
After our thoroughly enjoyable meal at which we didnâ€™t try any of the cheesecake, although we promise to come back even if it was just for the cheesecake, it was on to a shop Mel was keen to leave some of her money behind with.
walk back to the hotel, we stopped at all the shops along the main road at
Waikiki, Macyâ€™s for a new pair of swimmers, and another shop for some different
nail polish colours; with names like â€˜Hawaiian Orchidâ€™, â€˜An Affair in Red
Squareâ€™ and â€˜Nice Colour eh?â€™ it was hard not to buy them just for the names. We
finally made it back to our room to unload our purchases and get ready for
dinner. We had decided after our big lunch at the cheesecake factory we would
go light and head back to the Mai Tai bar for the Mahi-mahi I had last night -
oh, and a cocktail or two.
We made our way back to the hotel via the beach and the Moana Surfrider Hotel where we sat on the front veranda in the rocking chairs enjoying the ambiance on this fine Hawaiian evening.
