Hula Babe and Beach Boy, clad in tee-shirts, shorts and flip-flops, are back in Hawaii!
If you’ve been with us at TravelnWrite for the last few years, you know that this is our tropical season – the time we head to Hawaii -- and that’s our nom de blog while living in the Land of Aloha. (Hey, if Ree Drummond can be Pioneer Woman, we certainly qualify as Hula Babe and Beach Boy!)
We’ve settled into our Ko Olina timeshare ‘playhouse’ on the island of O’ahu.
It is here we will be living during the next few weeks.
Lucky for us several friends need temporary quarters while we are here so we have a built-in cadre of house-sitters back in the Northwest.
“But how can you be gone so long?” “Don’t you get homesick?” So many of our Pacific Northwest friends have asked that I decided yesterday to answer those questions by use of photos:
This would be the fog-shrouded Seattle Tacoma airport Friday morning as we taxied for takeoff. . .nice view, huh? (It looked like that all over the Puget Sound.)
It cleared a bit as we flew over the Washington State coastline.
About five hours into the flight, as we were finishing the complimentary MaiTais . . .
. . .the view out the window improved. . .
Honolulu was coming into view. . .
And then came Ko Olina and O’ahu’s Barber Point as the plane banked to land at the Honolulu Airport.
The three tall white buildings and the four lagoons to the center/left of the photo are Marriott’s Beach Club Vacation villas. I am writing this from our condo in that complex.
This is the view looking out the window here:
Guess that answers those questions!
While we are here, we hope to make some new island discoveries. . .have any tips for us? Out of the way restaurants? Beaches? Must see or do? Tell us about your favorites in the comment section below or by sending a quick email!
We’ll be ‘booking it’ to the beach next week so do come back to explore some ‘novel destinations'! And mahalo for your visit today!!!
