Oahu Highlights

Many flights from the mainland route into, or through, the busy capital city of Honolulu. We considered skipping Oahu, in favor of spending more time on the other Hawaiian Islands, except that our experiences at the Normandy beaches in France compelled us to want to...

Maui Highlights

We hopped on an inter-island flight from The Big Island to Maui the first week of the New Year. Happy New Year!! Before we left the mainland we booked a reasonably priced Hawaii (we know that’s an oxymoron) bed and breakfast in Lahaina on the Northwest side of Maui....

Here we are in Key West, Florida, having our picture taken at the Southern most point in the continental U.S.A. We are aware of the inaccuracy of this geographic claim, but sometimes it’s fun to do the touristy thing. Flash forward one year and here we are in Ka Lae...

Fresh Water

The Big Island has its share of fabulous beaches, no doubt, but first the fresh water highlights! For fresh water stick to the windward side of the island where average rainfall is 126 inches a year. We decided to explore north of the city of Hilo and were treated to...

Punalu’u

Punalu’u. It took us a while to wrap our tongues around this foreign sounding word but it has quickly become a favorite of ours for two reasons: the black sand beach; and, the bakery. We found Punalu’u Black Sand Beach Park conveniently within walking distance of our...

We Have Arrived

It was a royal pain in the ass to plan the trip (trying to align flights and accommodations) but we were able to use mileage for the airfares, including inter-island, so were pleased about that. To get the trip to work we arrived at nearly midnight in Honolulu (stayed...

  • The lake is a caldera which is the depression that is left after a volcano erupts. The island on the left is a caldera inside the caldera. We took a boat to the island and hiked to the bottom. We highly recommend the #hike .
