That afternoon I went to Waikiki Beach and enjoyed the sun and took in some last minute Vitamin D before returning to the frigid East Coast. I have never been swimming in December, nor worn shorts. The sun felt great as I enjoyed laying in the sand with my newly purchased Lei from one of the many ABC stores. That evening I went out and was carded for the first time in my life. I am so happy to return to the US being 21. After staying up all night, ending up at a diner at 4am, and watching the sun rise over the harbor, I went directly to Diamond Head Crater with Aveni, Ali, & Liz. We did the hour long hike to the top after exploring the unexpected farmer's market. The view from the top was incredible. We went to the beach afterwards before returning to the ship to go to Hilo for the following two days.
