    Recovery day - sunset cruise

    May 18, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    A slow start after a big night! After a long sleep in we had a much needed coffee and headed out with the girls to try and finish off our shopping! Alison has been a great apprentice as she likes to call herself- but today she excelled in her shopping skills- apprenticeship officially done and dusted! Lunch and a swim then we all got on the sunset catamaran cruise off the beach. Was quite rough sailing out and most of us got wet, but all part of the fun! Smooth sailing back into shore with the sun setting on Waikiki and a few cocktails! Dinner at Atlantis steak and seafood- beautiful meal- the biggest scallops I’ve ever had- delicious!Read more

    The big six o in hawaii five o

    May 17, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Huge day today for Glenn’s 60th- we started with a surf on an outrigger canoe - caught 3 waves in and stood up- was lots of fun, except for captain Chris up the front splashing us all with his paddle! Swam for a while afterwards then we all headed back to get dressed in Hawaiian outfits for the big kahunas 60th luau! We walked up to the Hilton stopping for a cocktail along the way at the Sheraton. They got Glenn up on stage to see who could blow his horn the loudest- of course Glenn won! Luau was good, we then called in to Hard Rock Cafe for a drink, and Moose Magillycuddys - played some pool and danced till 1am! On the walk home Chris decided to torment the hookers on the corner and had a pimp chase us up the road! Then out of blue right in front of the police station Glenn decided it would be funny to push Chris into the hedges- well Chris was stuck in the garden and Glenn fell over on the concrete! We dragged them both up as all the police officers came out to see what was going on- boys!!! Bed at 2am- big day but a lot of fun was had by all!’Read more

    Beach and Bar

    May 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Breky on the balcony overlooking the beach is hard to take- going to miss this beautiful view! Did a bit of shopping and then went to the beach. Some interesting sights today- a lady doing her aerobics and splits on the wet sand, and another lady talking to her baby doll in her handbag- only in Waikiki! They have king tides here at the moment so we advised the boys to move their towels further away from the water- boys being boys did t listen and they all got soaked by a big wave- we didn’t laugh much- lol!
    Happy hour on the balcony watching sunset followed by drinks and dinner at Tikii bar- Glenn added a “Weston” sign next to the Sydney signpost outside the bar! A fun evening and a lovely meal.

    Met up with the riders at Hard Rock Cafe for drinks and dinner- had a plate of nachos between us that we couldn’t jump over- so big! The boys still managed to fit an ice cream in on the way home!Read more

    Shopping day in Hawaii

    May 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    After breakfast most of us got the bus out to the outlets for a bit of retail therapy! Everyone found quite a few bargains so we got the bus back to hotel- happy hour and drinks on balcony watching the beautiful sunset, followed by dinner at tiki bar. Spike made friends with a few interesting Americans! The pommies arrived and joined us for dinner.
    After dinner the women headed to Victoria secret to get some bras and knickers- ( Alison is putting her name down for a job at Hooters now!) we left the store when it closed at 11pm and walked back to hotel a bit worn out after a big shopping day.
