We'll Be Right Back...

View from the top of Diamond Head Crater
 Wow, we've been on the go for over a week with family and friends in town!  It's been fun, just no time for the time for anything at home!  We've been eating out so often, we're pretty sure we've gone out to eat more in one week than we have since January!

The food has been fabulous and as usual, we started out trying to eat healthy, but a lot of meals are ordered family style here and we let the family and friends pics the places and dishes.  One more week and we're back to our regular lives.

We're definitely doing a few days of Attack once everyone's gone back to the mainland!

The nice thing was hiking and snorkeling were included in last week's activities, we got our exercise in!

Hope everyone's doing well on Dukan.  We're afraid to weigh ourselves!

The Diamond Head Hike has been modified.  The State built a second route to the top of the crater which is nice and offers better views of the island.  Park outside the park if you ever visit (near Kapiolani Community College) and walk into the crater...great exercise and it's only $1 per person.  The cost per vehicle is $5.  Or better yet, email us and if we're free, we'll join you on the hike!

Lanikai Beach is of the top 10 beaches in the United States according to the Travel Channel (or maybe the world, can't remember).  It's beautiful at sunrise and there is a Pillbox hike not too far from the beach.  The hike is strenuous, uphill and some places are steep.  It's great exercise and offers wonderful views of Lanikai Beach and the windward side of Oahu.  If you'd like more information on the Pillbox hike, check out Yelp or email us!
