I'm coming up on the end of the Hawaii posts, I swear. On our second-to-last day on the island, we slept in, dined on bacon and eggs (prepared in that amazing kitchen that I miss, already), and then hit the beach for our Christmas card photo shoot (more in that coming soon).
The Rodeo Princess was interested in seeing Waikiki, and we had tickets for a sunset cruise later that evening, so we drove to Honolulu so that she could see the famous beach and all of the high-end shopping malls surrounding it. Spoiler: she vastly preferred our side of the island and the relatively deserted beaches we enjoyed there.
After site-seeing, we boarded our cruise ship and settled in for a leisurely tour of the shoreline. The drinks were a bit watered down and the snacks were pricey, but you could not beat the view or the company.
