May 2004: ALOHA! This year we had the special opportunity to finally travel to one of the most enchanting parts of the USA: the magical islands of Hawaii. Our itinerary included a quick jaunt through O'ahu, one week in Kaua'i, and one week in Maui... two weeks in honeymoon world. Beautiful beaches, mountains, gorges, and waterfalls!
O'AHU (oh-WAH-hoo) -- "The Gathering Place!" Our time on the
main island was short, but we loved the happy city feel
of Honolulu and Waikiki. It was just like New York City, only happy and right next to the sunny beach.
Statues dedicated to the surfing gods line the boardwalk of Waikiki Beach.
Every good surfer needs a sidekick seal!
The newbie tourists just got lei'ed!
The view from Diamond Head. The hike up to the rim of the little crater gives a great view of the city.
One of my favorite shots of the trip: this hibiscus has the best view of the coastline below.
