One of our very first stops was the temple of the Church of Latter Day Saints in Laie. I was a little surprised when Matt said it was one of the things he really wanted to see in Oahu, but it was beautiful (and everyone was incredibly friendly)!
I’m finally getting around to editing and posting my photos from Hawaii! Oahu was amazing and beautiful. We did tons of fun stuff like surfing, stand up paddle boarding and hiking, but this first blog post is about the Airbnb we stayed at the first 4 days of our trip, Top Floor Pipeline Lodge on Farm (we were there for 9 whole days!).
Our first Airbnb was on the North Shore of the island, which is like the countryside – there were few restaurants, numerous food trucks (delicious!) – and wild chickens everywhere. Our Airbnb was amazing too – an organic farm with a view of the ocean!
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves though…
This was our Airbnb housemate/chaperone. We named him Simba.
Cat nap time with Simba.
This was a real organic farm with a chicken coop, vegetable garden and everything! On our first day, we got a box of delicious organic produce for $25. There was so much salad, kale, carrots, radishes, turnips and herbs in there we barely ever ate dinner out!
There were also huts where the owners taught neat classes like baby music class!
We were warned there were wild boar and goats when we met the owner, but it sounded like they hid so we had no idea we would see any!
