    Our last leg of our trip to the U.S. is on the island of Oahu, nestled on Waikiki beach, Waikiki looks a little like the Gold Coast of Qld, lots of tall hotels lining the foreshore. Our hotel is located two blocks from the foreshore, a five minute walk. Lots of couture shops to walk past to get to the beach. LOL! Diamond crater early morning hike …

    ... and unusual exotic flowers - we were in horticultural heaven!

    I just wished we had the panel of Gardener's Question Time with us as we didn't have a clue what we were looking at (apart from the Dwarf Pineapples that were expertly labelled). But it didn't matter, we simply enjoyed exploring and getting lost in this tropical oasis. The gardens then met the Pacific Ocean and we had ...

We then drove down the chain of craters road and saw a few craters surprisingly!! We then left for a walk to view mauna ulu. I thought it was shorter than it actually was but hey!! We saw a fissure that lava erupted from in the 70s I think. We then walked across to a cinder cone and climbed up it for a great view of mauna ulu! We timed ...

    ... so green and luscious.

    We took forever to actually walk down the hillside because we kept stopping to look at all the interesting plants. Even saw a couple gecko friends hiding amongst the plants and flowers. There was a lot of Heliconia (the red flower-vine things that hang down in long strands from trees), and to me, those plants mean 'tropical' just as much as hibiscus' do.

    Off to the right side were a couple places to go look ...
