Day 82: Ohau - Around the Island
Today we decided to do a cruise around the Island to see a bit more of Honolulu and also do a Hike somewhere along the way. First we had to get out of the city, which was slow traffic on a 4 lane road. But soon we left this behind and were on some beautiful roads along the coast, a complete change of scenery!
Weather was good as well, sometimes a bit cloudy but this provided some shade from the heat. For hiking we decided in the end for the Kaunala Trail, which turned out to be a great choice.
First is a stretch of walking on an unpaved road, which leads from the parking, through a gate, to the start of the single trail.
Then we had a nice single trail stretch, which climbed and descended along the small hills in the area.
Sometimes the trail narrowed down even more, this felt like the other Islands again and not like Honolulu at all ;-)
From time to time the view opened up a bit and we got a nice view of the surrounding area.
The last part of the loop hike was then on a paved, but closed road. We met some workers, but the road wasn’t open to the public.
After the hike we did a short stop at the Kawailoa Beach and cooled of in the water. This was also probably the last time in the ocean for this year… Then it was drive back to Honolulu with quite a bit of traffic. For Dinner we went to Little Italy, which was probably the worst Restaurant of the whole trip. Overpriced, bad Service and okay food.
