The Winter Roadtrip

Oʻahu is an extremely small island, but due to constant construction and transportation congestion, driving to North Shore can take well over an hour. Despite the drive length, I wanted to go on a hike and to the beach with my closest friends before we all left for Spring semester. The most beautiful route to North Shore is through Kāneʻohe side where we eventually stopped for the beach. We hiked ʻEhukai pillboxes in the morning, which is a quick but steep hike. The natural forestry blocks a good portion of the ocean view, but the lookout is gorgeous nonetheless. However I would recommend Crouching Lion instead. After the hike we ate at Ted’s Bakery (who surprisingly makes the best teri chicken I’ve ever had) and drove around Lāʻie before stopping at the big puka in the ocean. On the way back home we stopped at Kualoa beach park and swam for a few hours, taking in the early sunset. Mik and I belted Moana tunes when we saw this waʻa and laughed all the way home.
