Hawaii – from our condo

Yes, Jerry and I went on a trip to Hawaii with our daughter, Pam and son-in-law, Gene! What a trip it was! Our cousin, Kay, from Iowa, went with us on the cruise. What a great time we all had! Remember you can click on any picture to see it up closer, then click the arrow in the left upper corner to get back to this post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPam, Gene, Jerry and I stayed in a condo at Honolulu, O’ahu for the first four days. Then Kay joined us as we boarded a Norwegian Cruise Liner, Pride of America and cruised the islands for seven days!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe did a lot during those first four days in Honolulu.  Oh…Waikiki Beach, I love you! Our condo was about three blocks from the beach. We were on the 35th floor and had a fantastic view of the ocean, the city and Diamond Head! At night the starry sky was stunning! We watched the sun rise every morning and the sun set every evening. We were slowly adjusting to the time change!

?????????????????????????????????????????????????This was the view out our bedroom window!

Waikiki Beach was perfect! We loved it!


The day after we arrived we went to a luau! Oh, what fun! I’ll write about the luau in a separate post.

We were at Pearl Harbor one whole day. This too, is in a separate post.

Our last full day in our condo we went shopping and to the beach.

Actually we went to the beach everyday! How could we not??? Waikiki Beach I love you! That’s Gene behind me!

From the balcony of our condo we could hear animal sounds…monkey’s chattering, lions roaring, elephants bellowing… There was a zoo near by! We could actually see elephants from our balcony! Can you see him?

Our last evening, in our condo, we ate supper at Tiki’s, across the street from Waikiki Beach.                                                                                                                                                                      ??????????????????????????????

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe had time to go to Waikiki Beach one more time!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPam is loving it!
