Hawaii was awesome. And ages ago. If you haven’t read about it already, you can read Kat’s blog posts: whole trip, food and the best parts (wet n wild & the vans triple crown surfing competition).
Natasha and I arrived 3 days before Katrina and Scott got there. We stayed mostly around Waikiki and went to the aquarium, a short walk to Manoa Falls, to Hanauma Bay, $2 tacos (round 1), the beach, missed lots of busses and generally caught up. It was really nice!
Hanauma Bay is an EXTREMELY popular marine reserve with tourists everywhere. The entire reef looks dead, but the fish were still huge compared to the fish in Fiji. We didn’t see a turtle that day (though lots of other people did), but we saw one on the last day from land!
