Aloha and Hau’oli Hakahiki Hou! Happy 2014!
We had a nice Christmas holiday back ‘home’ in Hawaii and already miss the islands. After going through my photos, I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
On the island of Oahu, we visited our favorite beach, Waimanalo. It was a beautiful day though there were red flag warnings for Man-Of-War jellyfish in the water – hubby even spotted a baby one on the shore – so we stayed on the sand.
We stayed on the famous North Shore where the sunsets were just spectacular. Here is what it looked like on the first night.
This rainbow came out early in the morning so I hurried to snap many photos before it disappeared.
We had lunch twice at Ola’s where the view was stunning and the food was delicious. I tried the fish called hebi (shortbill spearfish) for the first time. Yummers.
We loved being back home, but eventually it was time to leave. So, we boarded a hopper flight (aka propeller plane) over to our next destination. On the way I took this aerial view of Waikiki . . .
and Diamond Head.
35 minutes later, we touched down on my favorite island of Maui.
