Oahu's Windward Side

Last Saturday we rented a vehicle to explore all of Oahu. We started with the Southeast portion, also known as the Windward side.
Via the Internet, I booked a mid-sized car at Alamo - just $105 for 4 days. When we got there, they gave us this vehicle, a Chevy HHR panel van. It was absolutely perfect for Hawaii, tempting me to buy a surfboard and wood paneling!
On Hwy 72, just a bit past Hanauma Bay, we came across these majestic views.

Continuing on, we arrived at Makapu Beach Park.
Eventually we made it to Kailua and Kaneohe. Then we took Hwy 61 (aka the Pali Highway) back to Honolulu. There's a scenic viewpoint above the tunnel that offers these spectacular views.
