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”

Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back

We started 2020 in the Pacific Northwest lamenting the rain and planning an escape to where the sun always shines. For us that was Oahu and the timing in February was perfect – a month later would be too late. In early March we… Continue Reading “Hindsight is Always 2020 – A look Back”

Wishing I was There

Honestly now. Wouldn’t you rather be on Oahu? I would. ~ Susanne

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

So for Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy… Continue Reading “Looking for Rainbows in Hawaii”

Ohi’a Lehua Hawaiian Flower

On our recent trip to Oahu I kept seeing this beautiful flower – endemic to Hawaii – and recognized as the Big Island’s official island flower. Even the name is lovely – Ohi’a Lehua – for Cee’s Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

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!”
