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.

Tee hee – we can see how romantic it is up there. Even if you had to wait for the Raiders game to finish in order to have the picnic!
