We spent three weeks visiting
the Hawaiian islands. Since we flew into Honolulu airport on Oahu, we stayed in
Waikiki for our first three days.
The top picture shows
the view from one end of Waikiki Beach over the bay to the distinctive peak of Diamond
During our stay, we
walked along the beaches, discovered the ABC stores, and several good places to
eat within a short distance of our room.
You can see more
pictures and videos of Hawaii on Instagram and YouTube.
Here's a tropical view of palm
trees and blue sky.
We saw one or two
glorious sunsets from the beach. This photo shows the boats in the harbor silhouetted
in sunset colors and their reflections in the water.
There are pleasant parks
beside the beaches with many colorful birds and plants. This photo shows a Java
Sparrow and a Saffron Sparrow. The videos on Instagram and YouTube give a better impression of the birds.
We also found a family
of cats living in a tree by the beach. They were not friendly, although someone
had left bowls of water under the tree for them.
After Waikiki we flew to the Big Island of Hawaii.
