Fun on Oahu

Final Hawaii post. 
Lots and lots of photos to share.
We had such a wonderful trip to Hawaii.
I know we travel our fair share, but this was a special adventure for all of us.
Arriving in Honolulu...

Beautiful plumeria tree - the flower that many leis are made of

Heading off to do the world's largest maze at the Dole Plantation

They finished the maze and were treated to some pineapple yummies

Cool pineapple plants

The pillars represent palm trees
The interior is absolutely beautiful

We always loved the name of the public bus system when we lived there.
The Bus

Not to be outdone, The Cab is also in business
Waiting in line for noodles downtown for lunch one day

The banyan trees were beautiful.  The roots grow from the branches down to the ground and form pseudo trunks.
