Walking Waikiki

on February 9, 2013

After a fun Polynesian culture show with lots of dancing last night we crashed into bed before 11.

By 6 am I was ready to get up and moving but it was too dark to find clothes without waking up my friend. I held out until enough light came in behind the blinds. Then I gathered up casual wear and headed out for a walk along Waikiki beach.

It was beautiful with gold sand and blue water with a cool breeze. Lots of people were walking and jogging. Surfers and swimmers paddled in the water. The view was great and I felt terrific getting in a brisk 35 minutes of exercise.

Even though I’m on vacation I’m really trying to stay close to plan. I’ve had a muffin a couple of times for breakfast but not a lot of carbs at other meals.

Yesterday and today we ate at a great beachside restaurant. I had the same meal each time because it was divine. Prime rib poke – cubes of prime rib meat flash seared so it’s delicious and tender. They drizzle an aioli made with a Hawaiian smoked meat over it and serve with grilled onions over greens.

If you’re going to pick a beef protein source, this is a good one.

Before lunch today we walked around Honolulu Zoo for around two hours. I have definitely gotten in some exercise!

We’re heading for the ship now. Maui and snorkeling tomorrow!
