We’ve learned over the years that when people describe a part of the country as “scenic”, what they really mean most of the time is that there are lots of trees. That usually means to us that you can’t see the scenery for the trees! Here in Hawaii, though, the trees accentuate the scenery rather than hiding it. Everywhere you look, there is another flower or tree or flowering tree. So much beauty to soak up!
One thing I had specifically asked Shelly to arrange was a trip to the Dole Plantation. We browsed the gift shop and watched a demonstration of the right way to choose a pineapple and an impressive way to cut and serve it. We took a train tour on the Pineapple Express and evening had our picture taken together.
My favorite thing at the Dole plantation was eating a Dole Whip, which is definitely worth the calories!
More on the more active parts of our journey later. Aloha!
