Day 8

Sorry for the break in posting but I have had a week away at our Yahoo group retreat! Yeah yeah I know, another holiday , but that is it now........well for a while LOL
Post for that on its way, but lets keep going with Hawaii!! Gee I miss it....


So today we were up reasonable early and off to Hanauma Bay to do some snorkelling. I have never snorkelled before but I really enjoyed it! Hanauma bay is a beautiful location and we had a great time here. 
The view from the top of the hill....





The view down on the beach....

This is all we have from the bay as we don't have a waterproof camera so you will just have to imagine all the fish we saw!!!
On the way back we hopped off the bus at Denny's for lunch - and were very good and had dipping veggies and chopped fruit with our chicken burgers....they were options if you didn't want fries - what a great idea! The waitress thought we were nuts though she couldn't believe we didn't what fries.........."honey...one can never have enough fraaahs!!!" *imagine very strong american accent*LOL

Back to the hotel for a clean up and a bit of a rest then we walked down to Waikiki for some more shopping and dinner. 
Here are some pics from the walk down to Waikiki.....

The only quilt store I visited! Not really my style but interesting to see the work that goes into the designs.

Before heading back to the hotel we shared a Nachos with Pulled POrk - very delish! We don't normally eat pork but this was really nice.

Love your photos Anita. Did you have to pay to go to Hanama Bay? I think I remember paying for that or maybe it was another spot. The fruit plate actually looks very good.
