LaniKai Pillbox View

Normally I am ‘indoors’ kind of girl, in Hawaii I am anything but!  This past trip we did a couple of different hikes and this one was quite fantastic.  The Pillbox Hike in Lanikai takes you up a steep-ish hill to two discarded WWII military bunkers made of concrete.  These ‘pillboxes’ stand on the top of two peaks and offer a birds-eye view of Lanikai and the Mokulua islands. Today the bunkers serve as  palettes for graffiti artists and a place for hikers to catch their breath.  We also know of a story where a young lady surprised her boyfriend with a candlelight picnic atop one of the bunkers.  They are now married with beautiful children.
