Hawaii: Day 5.

When we woke up in the morning, all of us were burnt. NO seriously, we were burnt to a crisp. My whole body was hurting. We decided, as our last full day in Hawaii, we were going to take it easy. Plus, Lisa had to attend a wedding up in the North Shore, so Mary and I were just going to be lazy at Waikiki.

We started our day by going to Ono Seafood on Kapahulu Ave in Honolulu. One of my favorite poke places EVER. I got a large combo plate with brown rice, spicy ahi tuna, and the shoyu ahi. YUM YUM YUM. We brought our goodies back to the hotel to eat on the balcony.


From our balcony, we were able to spot 3 turtles swimming close to shore, so we decided to head down to the beach, hide under a tree, and possibly search for turtles.



Unfortunately we were not able to spot them. After the beach, Mary and I decided to have dinner at The Top of Waikiki, which is a restaurant located on the 18th floor of the Waikiki Business Center. It’s a revolving restaurant which gives us 360 degree views of Honolulu. We booked it for Sunset time just so we could see the sunset.


We both ordered drinks and an entree (I had the steak and Mary had salmon). The food was pretty good, but definitely on the pricier side. You’re definitely paying for the view. Just some advice: if you get motion sickness, i highly recommend keeping your eyes busy, don’t look down, and don’t fixate your eyes on one thing, because you’ll start to realize the room is spinning, and well, you’ll get sick. After dinner, we walked off our food at the Royal Hawaiian shopping center and headed back to the room to pack our luggage.
