At the Dole Plantation

We walked through a garden of different kinds of pineapples

Chinaman's Hat

Our flight home didn't leave until late afternoon so we explored Oahu a little more. We started off by going to the Dole Plantation to see where all the pineapples come from. We enjoyed a Dole Whip - kind of like a pineapple frozen yogurt - before taking one last drive along the coast. We stopped at one of the roadside stands for garlic shrimp - delicious! Along the way we passed by several places that have been in movies or tv shows: Magnum's house and a couple of shops that were on episodes of Magnum PI, a valley featured in Jurassic Park and other movies. Our last stop was at a beachfront park with a great view of Chinaman's Hat.

It was hard getting on that plane to head back to the mainland and the real world! We left Honolulu about 4:30 pm on Tuesday, and got back to Savannah about 9:30 am on Wednesday. One of my bags was still in Chicago and was delivered to our house that night. We stayed up until normal time to go to bed and figured we had been up about 36 hours. It took several days to get over the jet lag but it was well worth it!
