Only Pretending to be in Hawaii

It’s birthday and anniversary season and I’m not above using them as an excuse for a trip to Hawaii. Hey, it worked the first time see here! Hawaii – the beginnings. But due to the pandemic and other constraints a trip to Hawaii is out… Continue Reading “Only Pretending to be in Hawaii”

Pull Up a Seat on Oahu

In the midst of our cool and rainy spring in the Pacific Northwest, I’m dreaming of Hawaii and would like nothing better than to pull up a seat on Oahu. Wouldn’t you? ~ Susanne

Looking for Rainbows in Hawaii

We didn’t realize it then, but timing is everything.  By some fortuitous planning, we managed a trip to Hawaii in February, completely oblivious to what we’d face upon our return – pandemic, lockdown, and stay-at-home orders. So for Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy… Continue Reading “Looking for Rainbows in Hawaii”

Sweet and Savory from the Aloha Bowl!

Two months ago – seems like a lifetime – we visited Aloha Stadium in Oahu.  No, not to watch football – but to walk it’s perimeter and shop its marketplace. It was close to 80 degrees. I wore sun screen and a hat –… Continue Reading “Sweet and Savory from the Aloha Bowl!”

Gleanings from Oahu’s Turtle Bay Resort

I’ve already posted the highlights from last month’s trip to Oahu – it seems like a lifetime ago! But as we are all in need of armchair travel during these pandemic days I thought I’d share a few more pictures from Paradise, with more… Continue Reading “Gleanings from Oahu’s Turtle Bay Resort”

A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!

Need to get away?  Come with me for a walk in Waimea Valley! Tucked away on Oahu’s North Shore, across from Waimea Bay, you’ll find Waimea Valley,  a valley deeply rooted in Hawaiian history,  and Oahu’s last intact ahupua’a, a traditional Hawaiian land parcel… Continue Reading “A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!”

To Oahu’s North Shore – Kualoa Ranch and Turtle Bay

Every visitor to Oahu needs to make the trek to the North Shore at least once. Most make it a day trip but this time we opted to spend four nights at Turtle Bay Resort so we could linger and enjoy all the North… Continue Reading “To Oahu’s North Shore – Kualoa Ranch and Turtle Bay”

Makaha Beach and a Surprise Lunch on Oahu’s Remote Leeward Coast

Time to drop back in on Oahu and take you to the remote west side of the island.  To get there we left our base in Waikiki and headed northwest to the Farrington Highway where we had the ocean on one side and the… Continue Reading “Makaha Beach and a Surprise Lunch on Oahu’s Remote Leeward Coast”

Oahu! A Walk at Ala Moana Park and Waikiki

It’s always hard to return from vacation and it’s even harder to share your enjoyment without putting your reader to sleep. (Remember the neighbor’s slideshow of no interest to anyone but him?) So I’ll break our trip into chunks and dole them out over… Continue Reading “Oahu! A Walk at Ala Moana Park and Waikiki”

Ordinary Days after Oahu

Some of you asked that I bring back the sunshine from Hawaii and I obliged – at least in the Pacific Northwest. When we left for Oahu last week, the skies over Seattle had been gray for weeks on end, the rain unceasing and… Continue Reading “Ordinary Days after Oahu”
