We were fortunate to have a few last days in Hawaii before returning to Houston for work. We filled them with more beach activities, hiking, & pizza making.
Our first hike was the Aiea Loop Hike, literally a walk from my parent’s house. I think I’d be trail running this one all the time if I lived here!
We also let the guys get their windsurfing in at Hickam. My hot husband:
David & my dad talking wind and windsurfing together.
We also tried the Tantilus Hike, a slightly longer one, also in the hills of Oahu. It started out like a Fern Gully rainforest, turned to a bamboo forest, then into this crazy root system:
Finally, we found an opening with some cool views.
It was a pretty neat hike; afterward we ended with a stop in Honolulu at the Peace Tree Vegan Café which I highly recommend, whether you’re vegan or not. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and David even at a dish with Black Eyed Peas (He refused them as a kid!). I had to take a photo as proof for his mom.
The visit ended with one more pizza night my parents hosted for their friends. David’s getting a little more confident in his pizza tossing!
Sadly our trip was over and we were back to Texas on a red eye. Yes, we went to work immediately after we landed, which is not recommended. Remind us NOT to do that again!
