Claimed my first wave on Hawaii

I still got a cold, but I'm starting to feel better.

Haven't really done much today, but prepared for the next coming days. Booked a convertible car for tomorrow. Will drive all around the island of Oahu. The top things that we want to do is to visit an outlet mall, the dole pineapple plantation and see the waves on the north shore. Big wave surfing is supposed to be very good there right now. We will also try to find a nice beach for swimming.

We also booked Kayaking and snorkeling for Saturday.

The rest of the day was a bit lazy except for an hour of surfing on Waikiki beach. Lots of people there, but didn't bother me that much. Ida was very close to claiming her first wave ever.

Waikiki beach is a mix of sand and coral, and there are sea urchins out there, so it's good to have reef shoes when surfing. Also had a rash guard against the sun.

Had dinner at a restaurant named ihop, and they had Swedish pancakes with lingonberry. Very odd to see here.
