we kayaked out to private islands with our very own beach. it was a workout for randy as i pretended to paddle but it was so much fun.

This was our favorite beach. there is a fresh water river running into this bay. it is so pretty.

right behind it is waimea falls. pretty and short walk to see a beautiful waterfall. http://www.hawaiiweb.com/html/waimea_valley_adventure_park.html

we snorkeled here for an easy beginners place. quite a lot of fish too.

if you like shopping and like good deals hit up the swap meet. they are only open for part of the week. http://oahu.aloha-hawaii.com/dining/oahu+swap+meets/

the pearl harbor memorial is a must see. it is amazing to see that ship still underwater and still leaking the original oil from the day of the attack.

high end shopping in waikiki

if you have troubles finding a place to get to the ocean look closely for signs that say "ocean or beach access". Usuallly there is a small trail behind someones home that will take you to the beach! I am just so excited to hear about your adventures on Oahu.
Wohoo! If you want to check out my pics from there you are more than welcome.

I don't know much about Kauai but this looked like a lot of fun to check out!
