Hawaii was good to us. Just like on our honeymoon, we kept it pretty low key and just hung out at the pool and beach. We had rain a few days, but that didn't keep us from being outside and basically having the resorts all to ourselves. We stayed off the beaten track of hectic Waikiki, but visited for an evening for dinner. We both agree that we like the sleepy side of the island a lot more. We are thinking we will need another island vacation in a few years, but maybe somewhere even more remote like Tahiti. Ahh, even just saying it sounds fabulous and relaxing. So take the jump & enjoy our photos from the islands.
**Tropical packing tip: Pack light! As you can see, I wore pretty much a slight variation of the same 2 outfits and swimwear all week. Derek and I each packed a carry on bag and it was perfect. For girls, think skirts, t's, cute sandals and fun accent jewelry pieces and hats. Derek lived in shorts, t's/polos, and flip flops. It makes everything so much easier if you don't over pack!***
