Ho‘omaluhia and the North Shore

On this cloudy day of winter break, my best friends and I adventured from Kāne‘ohe to Sunset Beach (yes, we did buy pie again). We spent a couple of hours having a picnic at Ho‘omaluhia Botanical Garden and hung out in Temple Valley. After swimming at a pool for a while, we drove to Kualoa Beach Park and walked all the way down the beach until we reached Secret Island. The pier on the island faces the exact area where Chris Pratt “lived” in Jurassic World, so it was really cool to see that! We ended the night with pie from Ted’s bakery and watched the sunset at Sunset Beach.
