Hawaii Recap

When you go on vacation and do touristy things, you learn all sorts of trivia that you can use to bore your friends when you return. Such as, Hawaii is comprised of a total of 132 islands, and holds the only two royal palaces on American soil.

Oahu: nice. Went to the beach the first night, almost lost my flipflops.
Kauai: awesome. Almost shat a pineapple when we saw how many =big= fish were right offshore. Snorkeled.
The Big Island: double awesome. Saw a sea turtle up close, saw spinner dolphins, and lots of fish and coral. Snorkeled twice.
Maui: awesome. Snorkeled in Molokini crater. Hiked the rainforest, where we ate more weird fruits and plants in one day than I have in my whole life combined.
Most eaten item: pineapple. We could all practically shit one after a couple of days.
Most annoying: me, for constantly saying the Hawaiian name of the state reef triggerfish (humuhumunukunukuapua'a). Runner up: Josh, for seeing all the eels.
Most amusing: the Wal-Mart shuttle at every port. And the fact that it was well used.

With hundreds of pictures to download and sort, it'll be a few days before we have 'em organized to share. Got laundry to do!

Almost shat a pineapple? That would be so painful. I can't wait to see your pics!
