Hello all and happy Tuesday! I don’t have too much to say, as the pictures do most of the talking. These are some more memories from my recent Honolulu trip for you all to enjoy, and a continuation of yesterday’s post. Meanwhile, stay tuned for some tasty recipes later this week! Cheers!
Enjoying the beach and view on our last day.
Out on the balcony one morning. Actually, this was our last day.
Some sort of heron or crane (anybody know?) that we saw walking around.
Look at that full, beautiful rainbow! I saw a rainbow nearly everyday on our trip.
Mai tai cocktails at Duke’s on Waikiki Beach!
Look, it’s Santa on the beach! I still don’t know how he was wearing that suit out in the sun and heat.
On our first full day, during a catamaran ride. I just noticed how funny Jesse looks in this picture! Anyway, prior to getting on the boat, I drank two Mai tai cocktails (with food) and then drank some crappy dry white (boxed) wine on the ride. Remember, I rarely ever drink and when I do — with the exception of this vacation — it’s one or two drinks max. I had a raging headache later and you’ll see what happened in the next picture.
This is what happened. I didn’t know Jesse took this until much later in the trip. I managed to pull it together later to go out for dinner, but still had a pounding headache.
Diamond Head, as seen from Waikiki Beach. We hiked it on our first Honolulu trip in April 2011.
It’s Duke! Duke is a famous, well-known surfer from back in the day. He died back in the ’60s, but is still well recognized to this day. Also, don’t mind the water spots, which must have been on my camera lens.
My pretty and delicious chicken salad at Tiki’s Bar & Grill. It’s supposed to come with a rice basket, but I got it without and got extra greens instead. The waitress tried explaining to me that the rice basket was just a garnish and therefore, wasn’t grain. Um, hello, it’s still made of rice! The first time I ordered this, a few days prior, I had a different waitress who didn’t question my request at all. Regardless, it was highly entertaining.
Jesse drinking his grapefruit juice in bed one morning while watching some tube. We don’t have TV, so Jesse kinda goes crazy when we have access to one. Usually, I’m not interested in what he’s watching.
Cool tree shot.
Me, going for a dip.
