WELL HERE WE ARE…..
Today we visit the DOLE Plantation and get a
neat island tour. I have always loved pineapple.
In the can or fresh it is all good to me. Visiting the
plantation where they grow and process them would be a real
treat for us all. The link above will take you to their website.
I keep forgetting that Hawaii is 5 hours different from home
in Michigan. It seems like another world in the islands, far from the
cold winds at home.
Over a million people visit this plantation a year. It is one the most
popular attractions on Oahu and is only 40 minutes from Waikiki.
Admission to the grounds of the plantation is free, the train ride will
cost you 7.75 but well worth seeing the entire plantation and all it does.
Later in the day we are off to take a four hour tour of
Diamond Head, The rain Forest and the scenic shores of
OAHU. At the end of this day we are ready to settle down to a large
feast or Luau on the beach complete with dancers and music by
the sea at sunset.
Back home the news is that gas is on the
rise back up again. In many locations
it was 1.99 today. Here on the Islands the price
per gallon was 2.41 a big difference from last
week. It rose at least 10 cents in one day. Hope you had fun in Oahu today..
Tomorrow who knows what we will be doing, all in the fun of the
ALOHA can mean many things but now it means until tomorrow my friends!
