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 Head.
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.
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.
