Just more of Hawaii

just some random pictures I took while sitting on the beach soaking up the sun. I sat where they rent out surf boards and you can have an instructor teach you how to surf. The kids seam to do much better than most adults and it was cute watching them learn.

More of Hawaii

Pearl Harbor

King's Village. Across from our room.

Senor Frogs. This place was so fun, the waiters and waitresses were so nice and had great attitudes. They make these balloon hats for all their customers and I was surprised Andy put it on but he felt pretty comfortable with it and I guess it's because most everyone wore them. Whenever they ring the bell whatever waiter or waitress is near you they have to make them dance with you right there by your table. They also have about 5 waiters walking around and picking people to chug out of a huge cup while everyone claps and says chug, chug, chug. They have karaoke and other fun activities, really a great atmosphere.

Using a crappy P&S camera didn't do this pic justice and no matter how I tried to adjust it it just didn't look good so B&W conversion made it look better.

A view of Waikiki from the plane.

White's sand beach.

Drinking out of a coconut or pineapple was the one main thing I wanted to do, I would of liked to of had it on the beach bt they aren't very easy to find and I found the pineapple in the bar of our hotel.

It's been awhile.

To my POTD friends, sorry I haven't blogged in awhile and hope you all didn't forget me :), Some of you know that I went back to Hawaii and for those who didn't know, yes I went twice within 2 months, yes im pretty lucky or maybe a little spoiled, lol. My first trip was June 26th to the big Island for 2 weeks, my second trip was July 25th and flew to the big island, stayed there for 3 days and then flew into Honolulu and was there for a week. I absolutly loved both trips and took so many pics that im so overwhelmed with all of them and would love to post them all but I don't think my blog can handle them all :). From my first trip I had posted a lot of Hawaiian flowers when I got back and still have so many others I would like to add.
(see pics over that way ------------>)

The Big Island was pretty and more of a relaxing Island, I enjoyed visiting the Botanical gardens, waterfalls and Kona. Oahu was beautiful but more of a fast pace, more shopping, bluer waters and more sandy beaches. We managed to do so much while we were there for a week.

This is the view of Waikiki beach from our room and a night shot of Waikik beach.

This is Lions head, it took me a few minutes to see the form of a lion head so if you look closely you can see it.

This is Sandy Beach in Oahu, it is very populated with jelly fish in the summer months so it freaked me out a little when I seen them all over in the sand so I ran whenever the water would come up

Here is Hanauma bay where we went snorkling, it was so fun and beautiful to see the tropical fish. One of them didn't like me for some reason and attacked me but just followed me and pecked at my ankle, lol. The underwater cameras they sell are very crappy so I didn't get to many underwater shots, DH managed to do a better job at using it than I did so I was able to salvage a few of them.

Last one for today but will post more very soon. This is Halona blow hole
