Oahu Island Tour... the South Side

We continued our island tour with Bryan today, since TJ had to work.  Bryan has been here for nearly two weeks, so he pretty well knows his way around.

We stopped at scenic points that he had found, plus Hanauma Bay.  We watched the required nature preserve video, and walked down to the Bay.  It rained on us while we were there.  (Are you noticing a trend?  We went to Hawaii during the rainy season.  TJ was only living there during the rainy season).  I didn't snorkel here today, like I'd wanted, but that's okay.  Hanauma Bay is absolutely gorgeous, a pristine body of water.

Bryan also took us to the Blowhole; Judy had to have the perfect progression of pictures.

  We went to Sandy Beach to watch the surfers.  That's where we ate our picnic lunch in the car, since it was too windy to sit on the beach.  Once again, we had shave ice.  I thought this was much better than Matsimoto's.  I tried passion friut this time and it was delicious!  (If you can say that about liquid sugar and ice).

We ate a late lunch at Anna Miller's.  I behaved this time and had a chef salad.  I've lost some weight and I'm not in any hurry to gain it back.  Bryan had to pack, so we returned to TJ's apartment, and while he did that, I watched Grey's Anatomy on his computer since I missed it last night.  Bryan had a late departure, so Judy and I took him to the airport.  It was my first time driving.  I didn't get lost, and we came straight back to TJ's apartment.
