Hawaii - Day 2

This day was SHOPPING day!!!
We headed out to the Waikele outlet centre on a coach shuttle, took about an hour and a half to get there after it did the rounds of all the pick up points in Waikiki then the drive out to Waikele. 

This was a great centre with lots of great shops. Across the road there was another complex with Kmart, Old Navy, Sport Authority and Lowes ( a home improvement store). 
So we headed over there first and checked out Kmart, pretty much the same standard as ours, just on a bigger scale. I then went into the Sports Authority while Craig checked out Office Max. I thought I had hit the jackpot in the Sport store. It was like our Rebel sports on steroids!!! But at half the price of Rebel. We bought a ton of brand name fitness clothes at minimum 50% less than what we pay here. And then some things were on special as well! We got a load of clothes for Trainer Tim and a few things for us as well. We also got Tim and us a pair each of Nike Free sport shoes for $90 each  - they are $160 here. We really boosted the US economy at this store LOL

We noticed on our walk over to this centre that there was a Chili's restaurant, so we just had to go there for lunch. We used to have Chili's here but they closed down and we all really liked their food. We took some photos to show the boys that the decor was the same as it used to be here, right down to the tiled tables! And the nachos were just as delicious as ever!!

After lunch we headed over to the main outlet centre and did a bit more damage over there - Sketchers shoes was first stop, then there was Guess, Adidas, Calvin Klein, Coach........and much much more............. LOL

We got back to our hotel about 7.30pm so was a looong day shopping. 

On Friday night in our hotel they have a dinner and Hawaiian entertainment show but we were too late getting back to go to that, but we were able to watch a bit of the entertainment from the main bar area of the restaurant. That was really good and then later the Hilton next door put on a fireworks show on the beach so everyone heads out to the back deck of the hotel to watch that. It was such a great atmosphere, everyone was enjoying themselves and just kicking back. 

Headed up to bed after dinner as we had an early morning the next day to do the Diamond Head Hike.
