All my photo plans in Maui were completely ruined when I ended up sick in Oahu - Waikiki specifically. I've been there... more times than I can count and found that it wasn't a bad place to be sick in, especially when you're familiar with the area. I spent four days laid up in a hotel room and finally managed, on the last day, to get out of the room and take a stroll with my camera. I only spent about two hours at the beach - enough time to enjoy the sunset before heading back to the room to crash.
As annoying as I find Waikiki, it has been a good source of photos and I did get a few good ones. Silver linings right?
