Remembering Hawaii (The Post That's Been Long in Coming)
Tunnels on the North Shore, was a great place to snorkel. We found lots of heart shaped coral and had a GREAT day in the sun.
Smith Family Luau. It was a lot of fun: great food and a real taste of Hawaiian culture. We even met a nice family from Canada and the girls frolicked with their boys, finding frogs in the dusk.
We found a great bookstore in Hanapepe Town. It is also home to the Hanapepe swinging bridge.
induldge and I was surprised how tasty they were!
Plumeria blossom on the ground for me to tuck behind my left ear. (It must be said that this pic was taken in our rental JEEP with removable top!)
Hyatt and took a stroll through their beautiful grounds, grabbing a hammock opportunity as it presented itself. Despite the fact that the beach behind the Hyatt is virtually unswimmable for kiddos, the girls decided we would be staying there next time.
Poipu Beach so we walked down and saw Karate Kid. It rained a few times during the movie but with the stars and palms overhead and the warm breezes, it was such fun. I've been wanting to see an outdoor movie for a long time and that was a pretty good movie, too!
Old Koloa Town was very close to the South Shore where we stayed and was a fun place to browse and take pictures with "the locals."
The candy apple bananas in Hawaii are so tasty. I have always like bananas but THESE bananas were indeed even better than most.
