Today we had an entire day off! It was good and quite refreshing to not have to do field work, process data, and what-have-you. Now tomorrow everyone will be refreshed and energized.
What everyone ended up doing was traveling around the island to do some sight seeing. There were about four different vehicles and everyone left at different times and went to different places. I gladly went on the last van. It gave me some time to sleep in til 7 A.M.! I suggested to the people in my group we should go to Makapu’u Light house trail, it is one of my favorite hikes. It’s not too strenuous, it has beautiful views, and if you hike down a cliff side there are tide pools.
After the hike we all went to get some sushi at Kuru Kuru Sushi (another place that I love), but the wait was 25 minutes and we were in a hurry, so we went to Aloha Salads (another place that I love) instead. Afterwards we met up with the rest of the crew from our program in Waikiki. We mostly stayed around the Moana Surfrider Hotel, it was fun to play tourist again. Anyway by the time we ate dinner we were all tired and most of us just wanted to go home and get some sleep, so we did.
