Yesterday I finally hiked up Diamond Head instead of just seeing it from the car. Yes, we have been here for 6 months and I haven't really done anything that a typical visitor does on a vacation. It's different when you live here. You want the weekend to yourself and you don't want to run around on the weekend exhausting yourself. Maybe that's because I had been so stressed out with RHEL 5.2 work. I dunno.
Diamond Head is a really short hike (and it's barely even a hike since it's got railings all the way up the trail), but the view from the top is really cool. It costs $5 per car. You can walk to it, but they charge pedestrians $1 to get in. Inexpensive.
We went up Diamond Head with Buffy, who is visiting us from Boston. Pictures I took are over here.
When Michelle and Gaston were here (visiting us from Victoria, BC), we got to go to Dole Plantation. Also posted pictures of that trip.
Still a lot of stuff to do in Hawaii.
