Hawaii--Part Three

On Sunday, we went to church with the Islanders.
Oh my goodness...that was FUN!

They were SO welcoming, and of course, they all knew we were visitors.
When we told them we were only visiting for a week, they all told us that was WAY too short of a time.
It was such a neat experience though.
The church had sliding glass doors on one side, which were all open.
They also had the ceiling fans going, so it felt good in there.
After the service, they all fellowshiped together {which also included food}.
We had the opportunity to chat with lots of the church members!






Right after church, we headed to Diamond Head.
I was super excited about hiking the mountain.
I even packed my heart rate monitor because I wanted to see how good of a workout I got, rather than just feeling it.



The climb was tough, but we made it!!




We look dead...I don't remember if this was on the way up or down.

The views were spectacular!!



I just love the panoramic function on my iPhone.



There was a pirate ship!  Evidently they do dinner cruises.




You could think my Dad was a nerd for bringing his binoculars, but he was GENIUS!!





Yep!  It was a GREAT workout!!
That afternoon, my parents and their friends went exploring the other side of the island, while Tyler and I drove to the North Shore.




Of course we had to stop at a food truck.  I tried Mahi Mahi for the first time! And it wasn't the last, either!
We stopped several times...one of those being at Turtle Bay Beach.  Gorgeous!




And again at another beach...

Then drove by right as they closed...besides, we don't like Dole Whip.  Didn't hurt our feelings!



We did stop for supper at this place...uh...delicious!!



Notes about Oahu:  it was not my favorite island.  There were a LOT of people there.  Waikiki reminded me a bit of Las Vegas...and remember my attitude about it? :)  Next time I think I would skip Oahu.

Sunday night we flew over to Kauai.

So come back tomorrow for pictures from my favorite island.
