Our second day in Oahu!
This was the most eventful day of our trip. We started the morning off with breakfast burritos at Kono's before hiking to the Lanikai Pillbox. From there, we stopped to rest at Lanikai Beach and Waimanalo Beach (Waimanalo ended up being our favorite beach from the whole trip).
After that, we checked out Leonard's Bakery for some malasadas. These had been recommended to us by multiple locals and friends who've visited the island before and they were every bit as good as they look!
Then, we went to the Ho'omaluhia Botanical Garden, Judd Trail (more on this in our Day 5 video), Nu'uanu Pali lookout, and Manoa Falls. Manoa Falls turned out to be a bit longer of a hike than we'd anticipated. It started POURING rain on the way back from the waterfall, but rather than staying under cover and waiting for it to pass, we decided it would be more fun to run through it as fast as we could. We were happy with this decision.
Last but not least, we went to Haleiwa Joe's for dinner. This was easily one of the best meals we had on this trip, if not THE best. Everything we had here was delicious. They don't take reservations, but it's worth the wait and there's a nice little garden to explore below while you pass the time.
