A fantastic road trip around the island of Oahu

Today, I had a fantastic experience of going around the island of Oahu with my family at the end of Spring Break! It was such an amazing experience that I had never had in a while and I am willing to do it again!

One of my first highlights of our trip is stopping by this place named Paalaa Kai Bakery. This bakery is unlike any bakery around the island as I had dug into one of the most amazing pastries that they have ever cooked! One of their amazing pastries is called the Strawberry Cream Danish Bread pastry and I have to say, this was one of the most amazing pastry items that I have ever tasted in my life (even better than what Costco sells)! When I took a bite out of this pastry, I just loved the taste of the Strawberry Cream filling that was in the middle of the Danish bread. I was sad that I didn't get to order one more to eat more of this pastry. However, this was one of my highlights during our road trip around the island and one of the best highlights that will remind me of a good place on the island.

Another one of my amazing highlights is the fact that I had taken a lot of great scenery photos around the island! As we were going around the island, I was amazed to have found so many spots for good picture taking! No matter where you are on the island, there is bound to be a great spot to take a picture of the vast blue sea or even the highest of mountains. Of course, I had taken a lot of photos on my phone, however, I added a cool twist to my photos such as taking pictures with my Pokemon in the Pokemon Go app according to the scenery! After the road trip, I have a lot of photos of Pokemon being in the best scenery spots! This is one of my best photos which is my Shiny Kyogre at the Halona Blowhole Lookout:

This photo is one of the best scenery photos that I have associated Pokemon with. This picture, in my opinion, is the best photo I have taken since it associates Kyogre with the waves in the scenery. If you guys do not know, Kyogre is a water-type Pokemon and always spends its days in the vast ocean. So, with that in mind and the fact that I was in Halona Blowhole Lookout gave me the amazing opportunity to take this photo with Kyogre in it! It was the perfect ideal spot for Kyogre in my opinion! I should have taken the photo with the blowhole active though...

Lastly, one of my highlights of this trip was a souvenir I bought from Waiahole Nursery & Garden Center. That souvenir that I bought was a $6 succulent plant that was being sold at the Waiahole Nursery & Garden Center.

Now I did not know what went over my mind to own a live plant of my own, however, it was the first time I ever dedicated myself to taking care of such a plant. Unfortunately, I do not know what this plant is called but it did look pretty as the plant looked like a blooming flower. I think the reason why I wanted to take care of a plant was either feeling pressured to buy something or finding another hobby that I would enjoy doing. Buying this plant might give me something in life that I have never thought of so I will try my very best to take care of this plant! According to who was selling the plant, she told me that it's preferred to put it in a spot where a lot of sunlight hits. In addition, I was recommended to water this plant about once every three weeks (which was crazy but at the same time convenient). With this in mind, I think I may need to put a reminder on Habitica to make sure to water this plant once every three weeks!

Well, that was it for my road trip! I hope whoever reads this blog post has an interest in visiting Hawaii! Mahalo to you all for reading!

Sounds like you had a good time! I've raised a bunch of succulents and recommend keeping your new plant in a terra cotta pot because they're more breathable and keep the roots from staying too wet. It's good to have a layer of stones at the bottom too, with a sandy/coarse type of soil. Make sure there are holes in the bottom of the pot and soak it in a dish of water allowing it to seep in from the bottom for a while to water it rather than wetting the top of the plant to avoid rotting ;) happy gardening!
