We arrived in Honolulu in the evening after 5 days at sea, our only stop in the 18 day journey to Hong Kong. We were so eager to go ashore as soon as possible.

I waited for Sherwin, as he worked serving drinks for the local show – the Children’s Hula School. It was really cute.

We went out to the pub on the pier, which just happened to be the place to be, with a live band under the stars.

The outdoor mall near the ship is nice, it is the Aloha Towers marketplace.

Look at this Hawaiian luggage!

We easily found what I was looking for – sushi

I had a cultural moment when I looked at these eggs and asked if they were regular boiled chicken eggs! I laughed at myself later.

We got out take-out, and picnicked on the grass.

The Aloha Tower is a lighthouse that has been a symbol of Honolulu Harbour and a beacon to ships since the 1920’s. It was the tallest structure in Hawaii for 40 years!

I didn’t know before that it is free to go to the top! Another thing learned through geocaching.

We enjoyed some great views of Honolulu Harbour and the Pool Deck!
