Our Hawaiian Bucket List

Sometimes I forget we only have a little over a year left on Hawaii. I feel like during our 2ish years here we haven't done nearly enough of the touristy things you expect to do when you live on an island. 

A few months ago, I started a Hawaiian bucket list and, almost a year ago, we've only crossed three things off that list!!! So here I am, at the beginning of 2015, making yet another bucket list for our time here on Oahu. Hopefully, my goal of being intentional this year will help us cross every item off this bucket list come January of next year. 

north shore beach footprints

1. Visit another island, preferably Maui or Kauai.

2. Tour the Dole Plantation and taste their pineapple whip.

3. Eat out at three local restaurants.  
    Monkeypod Kitchen
    any suggestions for our other two? 

4. Go to the Polynesian Cultural Center and watch their luau. 

5. Attend at least one Eat the Streets food truck event. 

6. Hike Koko Head Crater twice. 

7. Play a round of golf at one of the many golf courses on Oahu. 

8. Do yoga on the beach. 

9. Photograph a surfing competition.

10. Hike to all the waterfalls on the island: 
      Manoa Falls - Completed Spring 2014 
      Lulumahu Falls + Pali Lookout
      Maunawili Falls - Completed Fall 2013
      Laie Falls 

11. Take at least one good photo of a sea turtle.

12. Spend the day at Hanauma Bay.

13. Hike Makapuu Point Lighthouse.

14. Watch the Lantern Floating on Memorial Day. 

15. Visit the Honolulu Museum of Art 

16. Go spearfishing.

17. Take some underwater photos of fish.

18. Visit the Honolulu Zoo.

19. Spend a day exploring Downtown Honolulu.

20. Take Duke to the beach.

What do you think of our list? I know some of these might make great date nights and I'm excited to put a good dent in these before our PCS next year! 

HAVE I MISSED ANYTHING WE JUST HAVE TO DO DURING OUR YEAR LEFT ON ISLAND? I'D LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT PLACES YOU'VE BEEN. DO YOU HAVE A BUCKET LIST FOR WHERE YOU LIVE?
