Our included complimentary breakfast today was a little disappointing. there was a very sad looking set of what appeared to be small crumbed sausages, I left those on my plate, scrambled eggs and pancakes, those were quite tasty.
The coffee was lovely. We sat at a table with 6 Canadian couples and I was able to pump them for information for when I visit Canada one day in the future.
We were given a very informative talk on the Hawaiian Islands and a list of suggestions on what we could choose to do.
We have opted to take a short flight to The Big Island to see the active volcano Kilauea, it’s a full day with a pick up time of 5.30am!!! The flight takes about 20 minutes.
After the breakfast deal we hopped a bus to visit Maui Divers Jewellery to see their famous coral and pearl jewellery making operations. Beautiful stuff, but you can see they must work on commission, ‘cause they hate to let you get away without making a purchase!
Next stop was Hilo Hattie’s for all kinds of Hawaiian souvenirs. Some stuff reasonably priced, others not so.
We had sandwich for lunch here and I had really lovely Coconut Latte, yum!
Then it was time to get on another trolley and do a little more shopping.
We went to a place called Ross Dress for Less. We found some really great bargained price shoes, clothing, perfume and jewellery. Carrying it back to our hotel didn’t seem to deter us!
Speaking of Ice-cream…..that’s what we had for dinner tonight! Right now we’re back in our hotel, with a glass of Caramel Bailey’s over ice, watching the street life, just 4 floors up it’s a great spectacle!
Thanks for visiting,
