We are sailing away from Honolulu at the moment. We had a lovely few days there. It started well with the flight from Sydney. It wasn't full so we were able to move around a bit. Then our lovely hotel had a room ready for us at 8.00am so we were able to get a few hours sleep. We went for a bit of a walk, had an early tea, then got a good nights sleep.
It was going to be a hot day so we thought we would do a bit of walking in the morning before it got too hot. We walked down to Kahanamoku Beach not far from our hotel, then made our way up the beach towards Waikiki.
Looking towards Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach.
We had heard that the Waikiki Aquarium was small but worth a visit so we headed there next. It had some very interesting displays and we spent a pleasant hour or so. They are involved in a lot of reef conservation work, including recovery from a massive molasses spill a couple of years ago. We hear about oil spills quite regularly, but the molasses spill had devastating effects.
We walked back through Waikiki, looking for where we had stayed last time. We almost missed it because of the amount of redevelopment going on around it. Almost every block seems to have a new building going up on it. We decide not to go back into Waikiki in the evening as we had found a good place to eat near our hotel. It was good to do a lot of walking again.
