Our first full day in Hawaii :D After a good night’s sleep (no more having to wake up at 6:30 in the morning), I was greeted by this amazing view of Waikiki beach from our balcony:
After an entire week of waking up in the cold, this was heaven~
Ezra and Kurt admiring the view
Quick selfie before we had to go down for breakfast
Breakfast was served at the same restaurant where we had our dinner the previous night. While waiting for our seats to be ready, we walked around the pool for a bit
Ezra copying the Wet Floor sign and pretending to slip
They had a jacuzzi there too. The water was scalding hot! I couldn’t even completely submerge my body because it was so hot. But other people didn’t seem to have a problem with it.
Funny story – Ezra really did slip and fall here the next day. We went swimming after dinner and it was really cold and windy. She wanted to stay in the jacuzzi where it was warm but Kurt and I tried to drag her over into the pool. She kept resisting and ending up falling into the jacuzzi. Ouch~ She caught a cold after that too. Poor Ez XD
After a short while, the hostess informed us that our seats were ready
They had these cute little jam jars there
As well as these tiny ketchup and Tabasco bottles!
My parents had the omelette
Ezra and I had their French Toast (I think this is French toast … I forgot. But it was yummy)
Kurt had the breakfast platter
Papa Steve arrived to join us for breakfast and tell us what he had planned for us that day
He still had some work to take care of so we told him that we would go down to the beach and look around while he finished up
We returned to our rooms first to get ready:
Going up to the 36th floor
We stayed in room 3605
I took a few more selfies while waiting for the others. Kurt saw me and jumped into the frame.
Waikiki beach is just a 5-minute walk from our hotel. And every time you want to go down there, you can request a beach bag from the hotel, free of charge. The bag contains beach towels, a bottle of sunblock, bottled water and some fruits. You can even put in a request for a personal attaché to carry your things for you to the beach! Sushal~ We didn’t have that much stuff so we just asked for the bags.
Trump Hotel from the outside
Waiting to cross the street
Spotted this colorful trolley going around
Since we’re so close to the beach, it’s pretty normal to see people walking around the street in their swimsuits
Lovely path to the beach
We saw some colorful birds on our way there, and this is what happened, lol
After a short walk, we made it to the beautiful Waikiki beach
We’re obviously not dressed for a day out in the water (since we weren’t planning on staying long, we just wanted to look around), so my parents decided to just stay by the shore while we kids took some pictures at the dock.
Looks like a honeymoon photo, doesn’t it?
Kurt had his glidecam with him as usual and he kept filming Ezra while we walked around. (But he did get distracted by some tiny fish we saw in the water)
Whenever I asked him to take pictures of Ezra and me, I would hold it for him. (That thing was HEAVY! I don’t know how he can hold on to it for the whole day!)
Pretending to throw his beloved glidecam off the pier
Some fun wide angle shots:
