Tiki drinks and waterfalls, a little sunshine from our last vacation, to Hawaii.
TH has finally made his way from Chicago to New York, and this weekend we were in the midst of moving me from Park Slope into a sublet together in Williamsburg, so this will be a short little note hello. And what better way to say hello than with sunny pictures from our most recent holiday in Hawaii. While we were still apart, we were lucky enough to meet up, and fly the coop for a few days in early February, when we headed to the Big Island for tiki drinks, snorkeling and waterfall hikes.
This was my first visit to Hawaii (other than as a six-month-old), and I was thoroughly enamored with the Island culture; the warm hospitality and laid-back spirit was certainly something I could get used to. And those big drinks didn’t hurt either. Highlights included Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge, Akaka Falls, fresh rambutan at the Kona farmers market and snorkeling at Kahaluu-Keauhou cove. And we’d head back for the pretty beach view at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, any day. Even though our larger-than-life Hilton resort (complete with a monorail and on-site dolphins), wasn’t our normal traveling style, it was nice to sit by the beach, relax and escape the East Coast winter. And with spring right around the corner, Hawaii’s sunshine look’s like it’s finally headed our way!
