Seven people, 17 hours, and a day full of exploring the island could only mean one thing: Super Fun Day. It all started at 5:30 AM with a picnic sunrise and ended at 10:30 PM with a cat that had snuck its way into the car. Super Fun Day was a super fun day.
We began our 17 hour long day of togetherness by watching the sunset at the pier. A few of us packed breakfast, so we could have a picnic as we watched the sun come up and brighten up the sky. Next on our list was a morning swim at the lovely lagoons of Ko’Olina. I can bet that all the beaches were man made, but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. While I didn’t go in the water, it was calming just to sit on the beach chairs and play with the sand. Ko’Olina was funny for me, because I vividly remember staying there as a kid. With still plenty of time left in our day we went over to the swap meet. It was hot, it was crowded, and it was long. Though I did purchase a pretty neat shirt, I don’t know if I’ll want to endure that heat again. To cool off we continued Super Fun Day at Waikiki. As well known as Waikiki is the beach wasn’t all that great, but it definitely helped us escape from the heat. After a while in the water we spent the rest of the evening walking around and pretending to be tourist amongst the actual tourists. To end an already fantastic day, we watched a movie in the movie room of all movie rooms.
Though Super Fun Day will go down in history as a super fun day, each day that I’ve been here as been filled with if not equal or more levels of adventure. I’m too afraid to jump off rocks into the ocean and too afraid to go on hikes where I have a 5 percent chance of falling, but I find so much thrill in just traveling. There’s something about adventures in new places, as little or big as they may be, that puts me on the edge of my seat. Seeing new places and immersing myself in new cultures is what I yearn for. I’ll admit that at times my wanderlust consumes me, but I don’t see anything wrong with that.
