Hawaii Vacation, Day 5

Staying in town at the resort felt like a fun vacation, but when we relocated on Day 5 to a hotel in Laie, it felt like coming home. Along the way, we stopped at the Dole Plantation and competed (righties vs. lefties) in the pineapple maze, rode the train through the pineapple fields, and treated ourselves to a Dole Whip. 

The tour of BYUH brought mixed emotions: many of the buildings were new or remodeled and didn't look anything like I remembered, but, some things, like that indescribable 'spirit of aloha' that can be felt on campus will never change. I loved revisiting the place where Aaron and I met and sharing those memories with our kids. It feels like a lifetime ago now, but that little campus holds lots of good memories. 

We timed our drive along the north shore just right to enjoy a spectacular sunset along sunset beach. Truly, this just made my entire trip. It was stunning. We soaked up every last minute of the colorful display until it was dark.
