Hawaiian Memories Part II

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!

Look at that full, beautiful rainbow! I saw a rainbow nearly everyday on our trip.

Look, it's Santa on the beach! I still don't know how he was wearing that suit out in the sun.

On our first full day, during a catamaran ride. Prior to getting on, I drank two Mai tai cocktails and then drank some crappy dry white wine on the ride. I had a raging headache later and you'll see what happened in the next picture.
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 and go out to dinner later though.

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.

My pretty and delicious chicken salad at Tiki's.
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.

    I’ve totally been wanting to go to Hawaii this year- and your posts are making me want to go even more! Thanks for sharing!

    I also enjoy seeing how you manage Paleo eating while you are out of your kitchen.

      Thanks, I do what I can and always travel with digestive enzymes as added protection. I highly recommend traveling to Hawaii if you ever get the chance!

    I’m impressed you don’t have a TV!

      Thanks! I have no desire for one and I don’t think I could ever get myself to pay for cable, even basic. We have Netflix and watch shows on the computer. We use Hulu too, but just use the free membership.

    Gorgeous pictures!! I’m trying to phase out tv in our house. I never had one before we were married. We don’t have cable so we had to go to the gym to watch the Olympics. Haha.

      It’s not hard having no TV. I bet you’d be fine. Netflix offers a lot of instant streaming shows and movies, and the free version of Hulu is great too. Sometimes we’ll rent movies through Google or iTunes too. I admit though, I kinda wished we had one when the Olympics were on. It’s really limited what they air online — mostly highlights and clips.

      Glad you enjoyed the pics!
