It seems near impossible to take a bad photo here. Everywhere you look there’s sunshine, rainbows, green, blue, and calm.
This morning I adventured solo to the southeast side of Oahu. I was going to head up to the Dole pineapple plant, but a guy we met while having beers said there’s no pineapples! There’s a tour and a maze and a gift shop….but no actual pineapples to see and taste. Lame.
Thank goodness for honest locals.
Instead I decided to try to see some whales. There was talk of a lighthouse and a blow hole and hiking …and all these sounded much better and a little less touristy than going to a pineapple-less pineapple plantation.
But…I am a tourist…and am driving a flashy black convertible. Only $10 more, said my flashy, sailor husband.
I left early. 6 am. Apparently whales are more active in the morning and I had to drive for about 45 minutes, past Waikiki and past Diamondhead crater. Plus I got to see another spectacular sunrise.
I may have spotted whales way off in the ocean. I found the blow hole…and the lighthouse.
