Hawaii, day nine

For our last morning in Hawaii, Cassidy dropped us off at the international marketplace. We had a nice time browsing the shops and looking for souvenirs. We purchased a really cool Hawaiian nativity at one of the shops. After shopping, we decided to try to find Duke's restaurant to have lunch. We knew it was somewhere along Waikiki, so we crossed the street to the beach and walked along it looking for Duke's. Basically we walked the whole length of Waikiki without coming across Duke's, so we turned around and finally found it just steps from where we came in to the beach, but in the opposite direction than the way we started walking. After eating lunch, we finished our meal off with a piece of hula pie.
The lighting is terrible in this picture, but the beach is right behind us. The first time we ate here, we were down even closer to the beach.
After lunch, Cassidy picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. It was sad to see our vacation come to an end, but we were both pretty excited to get home and see our kids again too. We were both so grateful to the Larsen's for hosting us and showing us around, and to Lexi for taking care of our kids while we were gone. We had such a great time!

I know, I can't believe you walked so far, just to walk all the way back and realize Duke's had been where you started! But I'm glad you got one last slice of Hula Pie.
