It's a new year! Which means it's time I finally blogged something right?!
(Excuse me while I pause in realization that I haven't blogged since September. EEK!)
In December I went on a family holiday to beautiful Hawaii!
|Our balcony on Waikiki Beach!|
What better thing could there be, than to be enjoying the tropical sunshine, while it was flooding back home?? Ahhhh... winter vacation.
|I wish this was my view everyday!|
|Every visit to Hawaii should start with a Mai Tai at the Moana!|
|I'll never get over the sensation of being downtown |
in a bustling city, palms towering next to high-rises,
and hibiscus merrily blooming on the street corner.
|Spectacular harbor views!|
|A true, original tiki bar, founded in 1957,|
La Mariana is a must visit for any tikiphile!
|Yep, that's a waterfall grotto!|
|Oh-so-yummy cocktails may give you the giggles!|
|I am in love with the Moana Surfrider's plantation style building,|
and central courtyard surrounding a 118 year old majestic banyan tree!
|It was wonderful to meet up with our dear friend Debbie.|
She lives on Oahu now, so we rarely get to see her.
|Debbie brought us each a beautiful lei, in honor of our visit.|
|Champagne and tea?? Why not?!|
|Everything was irresistibly delicious!|
|Ready to dig in!|
|Scratch that Tropical Itch!|
|"Just a few more waves? Please mom??"|
|One last sunset...|
|...and one last look.|
