E: We’re getting towards the end of our Hawaiian holiday (thankfully still a few days left). Hawaii has definitely been a beautiful place to spend our honeymoon, the scenery is amazing, the people are friendly, and its just been so great to have no agenda and wake up each day to do whatever we want.

E: When we arrived we were lucky to find out that we had been upgraded to a king-size, top floor room on the beachfront. Just when we thought life couldn’t get much better - a bottle of free champagne arrived at our front door for us to enjoy!

E: We made a little day trip to Haleiwa - a near by little town, in search of Killer Tacos for our lunch. Shaved ice was a ‘cool’ drink to keep us fresh though out the day!

D. In Haleiwa we decided to buy me some new shorts and the surf shop that we went to adjoined a ‘Shave Ice’ stand (which is a bit like a snow cone) and give you a ticket for a free shave ice with each purchase. Lizzi and I were feeling stoked to be walking out with free pinacolada/coconut shave ice.
Next door we also got Lizzi an Island bracelet that had her name on it and a Haleiwa fridge magnet to deck out our new home when we get back.

D. In Haleiwa we had trouble finding Killer Tacos, but did find Cholos Homestyle Mexican… The waitress looked at us a little funny when we ordered double serves of tacos and nachos (we later realised we had underestimated the American portions). When the waitress brought out our nachos, the guy at the table next to us said it looked like a whale and asked if we wanted to share them!

E: We found art on the walls by famous Hawaiian artist, Ron Artis. This is Ted’s Bakery that we’d heard about and the reviews convinced us that it would be worth the walk for breakfast one morning. Turns out 4 miles is a lot longer than 4 kilometres, and going for a walk on the Hawaiian North-Shore means going without footpaths. But the baked good were definitely worth our oversights!
