Thursday was our last day on Oahu. I tried not to whimper to loudly throughout the day.
We ate breakfast at Sunny Days, this time the food was just as good as the first time, but the service was lacking. I think we had a new waiter, that spoke little English and was just thrown into the job, so he lacked basic table service skills. The people watching saved the day, as there were some interesting people to watch, as we waited for food.
Our leisurely breakfast was finished and back the to the little hale we went. Love that we could walk to this place. Truly this cottage is located in a great location, close enough to walk to good food places, Waikiki Beach and other beaches, plus it is in a nice quiet neighborhood.
After we cleaned us and the cottage up, we packed our bags, headed out for some indoor sightseeing. Our first stop was the Honolulu Museum of Art. Parking was down the street and easy. The museum was a great find.
We needed lunch after spending almost two hours here. Instead of returning to Honolulu Beerworks, we dined at the museum. Amazing food and my last bit of fresh ahi until we return to Hawaii.
We still had a bit of time to meander before our rental car was due back. Oahu Trailblazers book recommended an “underrated museum”, The Hawaiian State Art Museum. I would agree it was a worthwhile museum, that was small,but had stunning artwork.
After our brief time here, we had to head to the airport. Once again I received pre check and got ahead of Mike. Our flights were on time,even early. Out of all our trips, this flying seemed to be the easiest and quickest, even with a two hour drive home from Boston.
We had an amazing week, returning to the state we feel more at home at than Connecticut. We did stay in a different area of Oahu than before. That was important to us and we realized we are country people at heart, north shore living feels more at home to us than Diamond Head area. We are pleased to keep our every other year to Hawaii travel in place.
This was a great way to end the year and starting 2016 in the air, just seemed appropriate.
