Like most of you — especially as Monday rears its ugly head — I needed to get away.
But, like most of you, I’m not drowning in cash.
So I decided to get away — at least from my home, office and piles of laundry — by spending the night at the Ihilani, a JW Marriott Hawaii resort just after Kapolei and before Nanakuli.
But I didn’t just want to lounge poolside — though that was tempting, I’ll admit — but I wanted to drive around Oahu’s west side.
Hands down, the Waianae coastline is the most stunning on the island. The water is a color of blue I didn’t think existed. And the entire area has that same look and feel as it did when I was a kid.
Of course, I didn’t get to see everything or do everything I had wanted to. Like hike around Kaena Point, visit Mao Organic Farms and eat at Kaahaaina Cafe in the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center. There are a lot of great things happening out there.
Here’s how I spent 24 hours on Oahu’s west side:
