Back with the Birds of Oahu

It was just last month that we were in Oahu enjoying the sunshine, beaches, and swaying palm trees…. and yes, the birds! If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I’m an avid birdwatcher and I love birds of all colors, sizes and persuasions.… Continue Reading “Back with the Birds of Oahu”

Mysterious in Oahu – a Photo Challenge

After pondering ‘mysterious’ for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I found some photos from our recent trip to Oahu that will work. See what you think. One morning I woke before sunrise to see the moon cast an eerie glow on the Ala Wai… Continue Reading “Mysterious in Oahu – a Photo Challenge”

Sunrise and Sunset at Turtle Bay

One of the highlights of any trip to Hawaii is watching the sunset over the Pacific, or depending on where you’re staying, sunrise. Rarely do you get to enjoy both at the same location. But on our recent trip to Hawaii, we spent half… Continue Reading “Sunrise and Sunset at Turtle Bay”

The (Marvelous) Botanical Gardens of Oahu

I love visiting Hawaii, not only for the sunshine and beaches but also for the marvelous flora and fauna. What can be better than palm trees swaying in the breeze and giant banyan trees in the parks? I’m glad you asked! Because the best… Continue Reading “The (Marvelous) Botanical Gardens of Oahu”

Home Again, Home Again to Smokey Skies and Fall Color

I woke to these views earlier this week – and returned to smokey skies and the worst air quality in the world. Yikes! Still, there was beautiful fall color to be found at Coulon Park in Renton before the storm hit. After the driest… Continue Reading “Home Again, Home Again to Smokey Skies and Fall Color”

Beach Kitties of Oahu

I miss these two when I’m gone. They miss me too. But at least I was able to get my fill of cats from the beach kitties of Oahu. Even so, it’s good to be back home. ~ Susanne

Postcards from Oahu

I told my husband before we left that I wouldn’t be blogging and I believed it; he did not. So as not to let him down, I thought I’d at least send some postcards to share the aloha from Oahu. Words will come in… Continue Reading “Postcards from Oahu”

Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!

This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge explores the topic, so I thought I’d jump in with some vacation and staycation pictures taken during the Covid era. I’ll start with Oahu where we vacationed in February of 2020. Little did we know a month later the… Continue Reading “Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!”

Lightroom Fun in Maui

No I’m not in Maui now – I wish I was – but I am exploring Lightroom – Adobe’s Lightroom Classic. I just finished a class on the software – virtually of course – and decided to subscribe for a year. (A 7 day… Continue Reading “Lightroom Fun in Maui”

Jurassic Hawaii

I’m feeling a bit of Covid wanderlust on this cool January day so I thought I’d take you WAY back in time to Hawaii – all the way back to Jurassic Park. You probably already know that Jurassic Park was filmed in Hawaii and… Continue Reading “Jurassic Hawaii”
