We (well, mostly me) are planning our 4th trip to Oahu, Sept 2 - Sept 12, five nights Ilikai, 5 nights Turtle Bay, car for entire trip. So looking forward to it and, of course, obsessively researching every possible restaurant, activity, drive, beach, etc. I'm not sure if these boards are a blessing or a curse! LOL
I'm sure I will have some specific questions as we get closer, but want to say hello and thank you to all who post regularly on these boards. The time you spend and the information you provide is appreciated - and I get a little chuckle out of the friendly banter every now and then!
I love the islands and have been fortunate enough to visit a few times - Oahu three times and Kauai twice. DH prefers Oahu because there is so much to do and see. Me, I would be happy sitting on the North Shore, or Kailua Beach, or pretty much any beach... and just taking in the scenery, the wonderful air, and spend the day swimming with the turtles. He gets a little bored and does not love to go in or on the water. So my challenge is to balance our trip with things we each enjoy.
We both love our food and our occassional cocktails, and like to get value for our vacation dollar, so always looking for a great happy hour, early bird special, etc. He is a little less adventerous when it comes to food (and activities).
Anyhow, Aloha and thank you for all your assistance so far!Edited: 28 June 2013, 06:45
