Visiting Waikiki, Diamond Head, and Lanikai

I have just returned from a trip to Oahu, Hawaii, and I was reminded time and again of a simple truth: beautiful places are nourishing.  From a lovely afternoon hiking up Diamond Head above Waikiki to a day spent in Lanikai, during which we kayaked to a small island, swam in a cove, snorkeled, and hiked up to pill boxes set over 500 feet above the small beach community, I felt stronger at the end of each day than I did at the start. It was definitely good to get pulled out of my routine and tap into a different rhythm.
