FC: Aloha 15th Hawaii 2011
1: 15 Wonderful years | 5 Incredible Days
3: Makapu'u Point | Whales and a beautiful sunrise. What could be better?
5: A room with a view of other rooms with a view! Our hotel was (sort of) on Waikiki Beach The ocean was out there somewhere...
6: Dining with a view. Just ignore that health inspection notice. Plate lunch in Hawaii was TASTY!!
7: Surfs up on the North Shore
8: Welcome to the Jungle
11: Every Shade of green you can imagine. The trees were immense and the air was hot and sticky. It is obvious why the locals spend so much time on the beach!!
13: The most incredible day of the trip. Renting a kayak and spending some time on the ocean was Incredible. The sunken island was cool to stand on and the views of the Island were amazing. It felt like we were all alone on Hawaii out there.
15: The Waves crashing on, around and through our private island. This bird sanctuary was a challenging paddle but once we got out there it was so so beautiful. Even though it was a bird sanctuary we only saw one bird our entire time on the island. We sat on the grass, watched the ocean and enjoyed Spam Sandwiches!!
17: Our little slice of heaven. The ocean had eroded perfect circles in the rock. There were hundreds of these circles on the north side of the island. Some of them had a crab in the bottom. Watch your step! | We sat on this Grassy beach and looked back toward the island and where we had paddled. The surf broke around the island making the paddle in quite exciting as the waves broke on both sides of the kayak!
18: Amazing sunrise on our Anniversary. Rushing to the temple but we had to stop to see this view!
21: 15 Years and still having fun! It was a great way to start our day together.
22: Polynesian Cultural Center was GREAT. The dances were cool and it was really fun to talk to the students.
24: HAWA I I N S UNS E T'S A R E T H E B E S T
25: Pearl Harbor. A somber place to remember those who fought and died for our freedoms. | It was very symbolic to see the ship that started WWII and then look across the oil stained waters and see the ship where the war ended
26: The Dole Plantation | This place was LAME but the chocolate covered pineapple was tasty. Fresh Hawaiin Pineapple is AWESOME!
28: The last night. We found this beach and had it virtually all to ourselves. It was beautiful like all of Hawaii. It was the trip of a lifetime with my favorite person!
30: Aloha Hawaii ....Until Next Time
