I didn't want to hi-grade CI's thread ...
We had a marvellous holiday... We drove across the BI from Hilo to Kona, up to Hapuna Beach to body surf, climbed Diamond Head Crater, went to a luau where my son was the last on stage to dance the hula (very funny), shopped till we dropped, ate and ate and ate, went on a sunset dinner cruise, saw dolphins and whales, visited Akaka Falls, watched some surfers and hang-gliders in the southeast part of Oahu, drove around Honolulu, and walked Waikiki Beach. We tried to get some golf in but there wasn't any time left - the 9 days went fast!
