I met up with some former co-workers in Waikiki the other day. My mom had a lunch with her friends near Punahou, so I walked to Waikiki from there.
Here is what I saw along my walk...
I loved the looks of the King Kalakaua Building, it had a kinda retro feel to it.
Saw this Chevy Impala (I think) at an Auto Body shop.
Crossed over the bridge by the Convention Center. (wasn't it a gorgeous day?...it was super hot too!)
Oohed at the carved reliefs on the new Allure Waikiki (where I think Wave Waikiki used to be).
I think these fixtures must look nice all lit up at night.
Was kind of sad to see that Nick's Fishmarket had closed down, took a picture of the sign for posterity.
And they were cutting down all these palms.
I checked out 88 Tees which the Japanese tourists seem to adore.
Lunch was at Atlantis Seafood and Steak...their seafood pasta (which I took after eating most of the seafood).
And a pineapple sherbert. (there was also a delicious salad but it was wolfed down before its photo-op.)
It was great seeing my former co-workers and catching up with them. (Thanks Val and Greg! and Carroll for arranging our lunch!)
Before I caught the bus back to Beretania to meet up with my mom, I bought myself a small iced coffee from the Peet's cart in the Sheraton Waikiki.
I really like Peet's coffee and always buy a bag to take back with me.
Not too sure how I came to love them but do remember getting a bag of their roasted coffee in a paper sack way back when.
Another thing I like about them is that they have small sized drinks, which are cheaper and actually about the same size as the tall sized drinks at Starbucks! (ha!)
Nice walk, nice catch-up with friends and despite the blisters on my feet, an overall nice day.
