Here's the thing about Dole, the main stuff is free...the gift shop, cafe, and pineapple garden. Where they get you is with all the other stuff...train ride, pineapple maze, etc. None of which we did, so our trip was free...well, except for the stuff we bought in the gift shop (which is horrendously overpriced) and the delicious, delicious pineapple soft serve!

We were totally in awe of these trees, which were all over the property...I mean, look at them! They're so pretty!
After we checked out Dole, we walked next door to a smaller, more quaint pineapple plantation which was completely free and had gardens filled with kitschy stuff like this...
I made him pose and then he made me. Is this married life?!
...and foo dogs...
...and a giant pineapple, of course!
On our last day in Hawaii, before heading to Honolulu, we stopped at this pull-off for a bit to take in the view of the windward coast one last time...
Then we headed over to Koko Crater Botanical Garden, another one of Hawaii's beautiful, free gardens/parks. We didn't stay too long since we hadn't had breakfast yet or put on enough sunscreen...but that didn't stop me from taking a ton of flower pictures...
Did I mention that Koko Crater has an entire grove of plumerias?! It smells amazing!
I think this might be one of my favorites!
Alright, one more post to go! It's the final stretch, you're almost there! Stay tuned tomorrow! Then instead of Hawaii posts it'll go back to the usual: flowers, bees, and maybe some pictures of a certain basset hound named Cheese.
