Hale'iwa (the "w" is pronounced as "v"), a laid-back community with art galleries, surf shops, stores and cafes housed in plantation-era buildings is a must-see for every Hawaii visitor. Another must for the visitor is the famous shave ice.
Bana-bear and I made another visit to Haleiwa yesterday. On our way, we passed by the Dole Plantation, another tourist attraction. We had a sumptuous lunch at Haleiwa Joe's Seafood Grill, after which we walked around and visited some souvenir shops. Our adventure was cut short, however, when bana-bear's suv won't start because something went wrong with his vehicle's anti-theft key. We had to contact a tow service to take the vehicle to Cutterford.
While waiting for the tow truck, we hanged out at Haleiwa Joe's bar where I had a huge macadamia nut sundae. Well, leaving Haleiwa aboard a tow truck and taking a bus ride home with bana-bear was an adventure itself.
My hubby promised to bring me back to Haleiwa again. Hopefully, before school starts. I'll post more pictures of our next visit.
