Holiday weekend

It's been a while since I've had a holiday weekend that actually meant something.  With the spring and summer semesters being done totally online, it never felt like a day off here and there made a difference.     What a nice feeling to enjoy the time off.  

Monday was our most exciting day.  Erik had to work overtime both Saturday and Sunday, so we spent most of Monday doing fun things.  It started with a scone and lemon curd breakfast (or strawberry kiwi jam, whatever was preferred), then a hike to Manoa Falls.  Quite honestly, it was the easiest hike we've done since moving here and was so traffic heavy that with all the stopping, it really didn't feel like a hike.  But it was beautiful and we were able to see all the spots we fixed up on our trail volunteer day.  

We ended the day in Waikiki, utilizing happy hour at the Yard House and wandering around.  Once on the beach, we realized we would be getting to see the sunset!  I think it was the first time we've seen the sunset since moving here, since it's blocked by the mountains at our place.

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday!
