Today there was expected rains and the wind was very strong - it blew my cereal out of the bowl! So we decided to shelve our morning at the beach and head to Ala Moana for a shopping day, to get the last off our lists.......
Check out the lean on those palm tree's......
So there isn't much to share, our morning of shopping turned into more of a whole day shopping. Ala Moana was a nice shopping mall. It had Macy's, Nordstrom, many designer shops such as Jimmy Choo, and many other less exclusive stores that weren't as costly, such as the ABC store (there's are everywhere in Hawaii, between here and the beach we must pass 5 of them!). It was a good mall to pick up what you needed, however wasn't particularly cost saving. For example our shopping at Vans at Camarillo outlets meant we were picking up Vans for between $15 and $40 (leather) a pair. It was buy one get the second pair half price. Where as the store in Hawaii a pair on sale was starting at $25, so while compared to the price in Sydney it was much less, but compared to Camarillo, it wasn't as worthwhile.
On the way back to our hotel we stopped at the market in Dukes lane where were able to pick up some souvenirs for the teens to take back home, then off to buy burritos at the market again......... They were too good the first time so we had to go back for more!
Tomorrow is our last full day in Hawaii and then it is time to head back to reality!
Goodnight from Waikiki!
