Helllloooo there! I just came back in from the most scenic and beautiful run of my life! I didn’t really have a route planned so I don’t know how far I went. I am guessing maybe 2 or 2 and a half miles or so. I zigg-zagged through some streets, ran on the waterfront, through a park, past my hotel, and back around again. My SPIbelt really came in handy because I could carry my I.D, some cash, and my camera. I didn’t snap many pics because that takes too much coordination.
I love starting my day with a run: so energizing!
Last night we got to walk around the downtown area of Waikiki. It is so cool because in addition to regular street lights, they also have gas tiki-torches that lines the streets.
In one of the parks there was a Hawaiian band playing which was cool. We listened for a few but hunger got the best of us 🙂
For dinner we went to the most Hawaiian place we could think of: The Cheesecake Factory 🙂
I haven’t eaten there in a very long time so I “splurged” and had a couple strawberry martinis through the meal.
These martinis are made with fresh muddled strawberries, sugar, and vodka. If you remember, I tried to make these before I saw Chelsea Handler a few months ago and ended up spilling an entire package of sugar on the floor. My home-made ones were good but these were way better!
I got the chicken picatta (no capers or mushrooms) and basically ate the spaghetti because the chicken looked just OK. I also got a piece of the peanut butter cup cheesecake for when I got back to the room. I ate a little more than half of it before calling it a night.
Today we are renting a car and going to the famous Hawaiian shopping center which I forget the name of right now. Tonight is a sunset cruise!
