Above is Hanalei Bay, Kauai and I can say that it has to be one of the greenest places I have ever had the pleasure to visit. I know many people have visited and I am so very happy I can say I have finally been to Hawaii! I have a lot to share, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and I’ll go through some photos. I took so many, I don’t want this to be a zillion photos so I’ll choose carefully. I can’t believe how busy I’ve been. My sister came to town from Idaho and she was here to see her son and help take care of my horses while I was away on my trip. She stayed long enough for us to enjoy many trail rides before she headed home. Hence why I’ve been away. It’s been a whirlwind of travel, visiting and then getting back into the groove of life! What has been happening in your world? I am hoping you are having a wonderful week into this weekend! 😀
It’s funny but I have it in my head about how long I want to write my posts and about how many photos I want to share and I stick to this kind of guide I’ve created. I know I don’t need to be exactly the same from post to post but I am struggling a bit as to how many photos and how much to share! Kind of silly really. I know you can read much faster than I can write and here I’ve just written a paragraph of nothing! But it weighs on my mind. So bear with me as I gather my thoughts. I think this will be one of my longest posts with probably the most photos. I think I will keep sharing and labeling the photos with a sprinkle of words in between. How is that coffee? need a refill? I also have shared on other social media and so this for some will be a repeat of some of my photos!
We then traveled from Kauai to Oahu. It is a very short flight and oh what a different Island! It reminded me of California where I live to be honest as there is a lot more people in Honolulu, definitely more traffic than Kauai. We went and ate at Restaurant 604, with a beautiful view of Pearl Harbor bay. Even though traffic was worse on this Island, it was not as bad as CA traffic and we went to the Dole Plantation, the North shore for amazing shrimp lunch and a Luau on the West side of the Island. We went to Waikiki beach and ate a breakfast at Cinnamon’s, an amazing restaurant with the best pancakes and Eggs Benedict! I need to go on a diet, I ate so much and had such great food! 😀
I have decided to dedicate another post to Pearl Harbor and the photos I took there instead of cramming everything into this single post. We had such a blast, and I have to thank my daughter from the bottom of our hearts for this absolutely WONDERFUL vacation. It was much needed and she did an awesome job planning everything. We owe her so much, just indebted to her generosity and her LOVE for travel. She makes traveling even better as it is her passion. I so enjoyed everything we did and I am also very grateful she doesn’t mind keeping the traveling short. I know we could easily spend 2 weeks in Hawaii and visit other Islands but with my horses and work I find it difficult to be away much longer than 6 – 7 days at one time. This time away was PERFECT!
Thank you for visiting and having coffee with me today as I reminisce about my travels. I had so much fun sharing, I hope you enjoyed. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Traveling Mom, Wife
