Hawaii, Day 1

After arriving in Hawaii late last night, I slept like a log. In the morning, we went down Queen Ka'ahumanu highway to the Aloha cafe, where we had breakfast with the resident geckoes. Following breakfast, we relaxed for a bit, then went snorkelling at Turtle Beach, where Allie and I got to swim with a green sea turtle! (Pity that I didn't have a waterproof camera with me.) After that, it was off to Dan's place for the ceremony!
