This is the first time that I've come twice in one calendar year. Note to self -- It doesn't suck to return to HNL in the same year, turns out there's more than enough good stuff here to support enjoyment on two separate trips.

First vacation meal was Hawaiian Pork nachos at Duke's with a margarita. It's a tradition. Also, I'm going to have Kalua Pork nachos at some point in every Hawaii trip, so I might as well own it and do it as the first thing.

The next day we headed out to hike the Koko Crater Railway Trail. You know, the same one POTUS and FLOTUS hiked a few days ago (I'd researched it and planned to do it *before* they did it, of course).

In other news, last week's total mileage was 26.42 (including walking and hiking, as always), which puts it as the highest mileage week since September... so that's something.
Happy almost New Year!
