Hawaii! Part 1

I love Hawaii. If I could live there, I'd move in a heartbeat!

Well, maybe not. Too many friends and family in the continental United States for that really to be feasible. But maybe if I won the lottery and had my own private jet... And there's probably other problems with living there that I have no idea about, having only been a visitor.

I've been lucky enough to go to Hawaii twice in my middle-aged (is 44 middle-aged still?) life. Once 6 years ago with my then-hubby, for 2 weeks; one week on Maui and one week on the Big Island. And then again in March last year with my brother and his wife and our mom for a week on Maui. It's also looking like I'll get to go again next March for a week on the Big Island, with my brother, his wife, my sister, her husband, their two kids, and our mom. That's not for sure, but my fingers are crossed.

As you might guess, I have a lot of Hawaii photos from my two trips. A. Lot. So since my Texas skies certainly don't cooperate all *that* often for fabulous scenery, why then I might just as well share those on a semi-regular basis, too, right? Here's a couple to get us started.

This is from March 2008, looking out from our condo balcony up in the Honokowai area of Maui (just north of the popular Kaanapali tourist area), towards the island of Molokai.



And this one is looking back over the West Maui mountains.



Don't worry, friends, I'll have plenty of Hawaii sunset photos for you...and some whales, too!

Love the pictures of Hawaii.....I could move there in a heartbeat also...there or Ireland (where I did live in 2006-2007)....LOL, a big difference in the two, I know....I believe in going from one extreme to the other.

Big Hugs to you, Tex, from another Tex.....:))))))

I've been to Hawaii twice, and each time was for an hour! When I traveled to Australia, that's where the plane refueled...the view from the airport window was divine! lol

I'd love to go back and actually leave the airport next time!

I have never been to Maui, but we lived on Oahu for a year when I was 10-11 years old and I remember so many things about it. I'm kind of scared to go back because it is so built up now - but it's a beautiful place.
