Hawaii Day 7 - Lazy Day at the hotel

Day 7 dawned beautiful and sunny. We decided to have ourselves a lazy day. I believe there was some post-breakfast napping, some reading on the lanai (balcony). We can see this statue from the lanai:

Meditating Buddha

In the afternoon, we decided to veg out by the pool with our books. It was a little bit cloudy so the water seemed a little too cold so we didn't do too much swimming. Here's what some of the grounds of the hotel looked like:

Bridge over the lagoon
Hammock by a coconut tree
Sea turtles sign!
The Ocean Tower from the other side of the lagoon

The sea turtles sign - we'll talk more about sea turtles in the next entry on Hawaii (Day 8).

Here's some of the view of the ocean:

See? It's cloudy
But still quite beautiful

We walked by the Dolphin Quest while they were doing their routine, and some kids had signed up (and paid good money) to be in the water with the dolphins. For free, I got some cool photos though:

Dolphin Quest program
Pair swimming
Solo dolphin

They swam, and jumped, and chittered, it was amazing. I got some video of them jumping which I will try to share at some later date. ;)

Here are some pictures of the cool big pool:

We woke up to this view, photostitched:

It was an uneventful day. We ate at the hotel restaurants rather than venturing out. It was nice and lazy, exactly what we needed. I finished reading a book and sat by the pool. Did not add to my sunburn since it was cloudy. To end, here's a final photostitching of the ocean, and I'll see you all later.
