But I did have an island adventure that included taking every opportunity to point out the '5-O' (just like on TV),
visiting the aquarium,
watching filming of Hawaii 5-O at the hotel across the road (we only saw the extras),
following a 'combat wounded veteran',
seeing the green mountains,
taking a bus trip through a macadamia farm,
learning a bit of fire dancing,
taking a boat trip on a giant fish pond in a tropical downpour,
learning more about growing pineapples,
subtly taking a photo of a dog in a pushchair while in a shop,
waiting for buses,
shopping for moonshine at Walmart (kidding),
cooking up farmers' market apple-bananas to go with our pancakes and ice-cream,
eating quite a few of my favourite biscuits,
seeing a few hula shows,
and these $700 shoes!
And annoyingly, eating breakfast on the lanai every morning with this view.
Now it's back to reality and perhaps some sewing this weekend.
