Hawaii Vacation; Oahu Photo Fun!

Waikiki Beach, Oahu. You can see Diamond Head off in the distance on the right!

I had so many photos to share I decided to make a second post about my travels to Hawaii with my hubby and my daughter. She packed our vacation full of fun adventures which I just loved! I shared a photo similar to the one above but I was turned a bit to the left in my previous Hawaii post which is here. It is fun to use the panoramic setting on my camera, and I thought this turned out rather nice. I also wanted to share some fun photos from Pearl harbor and the museums and Memorials we saw there. We were blessed with absolutely the best weather!

Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona Memorial.
The museums had some amazing models. I didn’t exactly know what it looked like under the Memorial. This really shows what is sunk in the water entombing 1,102 Marines.
History pauses you to honor those fallen soldiers when you visit Memorial’s. I have been to many and I always pay my respects.

After visiting the USS Arizona we went over to the USS Bowfin Submarine. It was pretty busy with full ferry’s of people going over to the Arizona, but by the time we got to the submarine, no one was in it and we were able to get some good photos. A few people trickled in but it was nice to be able to view without the crowds! The sun came out finally as it was rather overcast when we visited the Arizona.

My daughter in the submarine. We were surprised at all the small bunks. I am amazed people could be in such tight quarters under the seas.
Haha, me on the submarine!
I can’t believe how polished all the brass is and how shiny and pretty everything is in this photo, including my daughter! 😀
My daughter in action! Haha! Great photo!
It really is a pretty day! I can’t thank my daughter enough for this vacation!
My hubby in action!
My two Air Force loves, Veteran hubby and Major Daughter! So very proud of them!

We went to the air museum they had there and this type of jet was at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas where my husband served. So I had to take a photo of them, such dedication, so very proud. She is now in the Space Force, isn’t that crazy? She will help develop this branch of the service being right there as this all unfolds. I find it all very fascinating and interesting! I do not know too much about it all, but she has been briefed by Generals and what she tells us is very interesting. 😀

Waikiki beach, what a beautiful place!

I hope to return to Hawaii someday even though it is an expensive adventure. If I am never able to return then this will end up being a trip of a lifetime. I wanted to share like it is since we had never been and I do not know if we will be able to return. Thanks for visiting and enjoying my Hawaii trip with me. We had a blast!!

Traveling Fun!

  1. More photos yay, Great fun photos like a big grown up playground, seeing memorials up close does bring a certain amount of realisation to what those brave amazing people went through. Hopefully you’ll get to go again one day, start a donation box with the family. lol
