Tagged: Dole Plantation

Ever since the first day I glanced at our Lonely Planet book I had one thing picked out that I really, really wanted to do: go to the Dole Plantation and do the world’s largest maze that happens to be shaped like a pineapple! If you go HERE you can see an aerial view.

But the excitement didn’t stop there. Oh no. Pineapple education is a fascinating thing. I love pineapples.

Here I am being excited and looking like I haven’t slept in 3 weeks…Yikes:

Pineapple plants only make 2 pineapples in their whole life! That’s crazy.

I had no idea how pineapples grew; they just come straight out of the top of the plant:


Me and the pineapple:

They had a BUNCH of different varieties. I had no idea so many existed. (the one on the bottom left kind of scares me)

More pineapple education:

Together in the same photo thanks to the magic of Photoshop:

This is one of the coolest tree trunks I’ve ever seen:

We did not take the Pineapple Express.

The maze!

Inside the maze:

You had to find 6 stations that had stencils to prove you mastered the maze. It actually took a long time and we cheated just a little bit.

When we finally got out, we got some pineapple ice cream. YUM:
