Waikiki is for lovers

1 Dec

We spent a day cruising around Waikiki and of course I shot some photos.  It’s so interesting to see huge skyscrapers right down on one of the most beautiful beaches overlooking Diamond Head.  Anyway, here’s my take in pictures of Waikiki/Honolulu over the holiday!

Beach walk.

Diamond Head.

You know my love for modern architecture… this building was very interesting!

Surf boards and Christmas wreaths, I love it!

One of my favorite parts of the day!  We walked by this shop that had high windows and when the dog heard us he came running to window to greet us.  His tongue I’m pretty was stuck outside of his mouth though so it gave him an adorable “flaw.”

I’m sure he has to be really well known in the Honolulu area.  He’s too damn cute to not notice!

We also walked around the Royal Hawaiian which was BEAUTIFUL.

Pillars and columns everywhere.  I love symmetry in architecture and the Royal Hawaiian was stunning.

They were setting up for a wedding.

Hawaii is a must see if you’ve never been and like sub-tropical destinations.  It’s incredibly beautiful and well worth the vacation!

Hawaiian Skies

28 Nov

OK, since I have the obsession with taking pictures of sunrises, sunsets, cool cloud patterns, etc. I thought I’d start my week of Hawaii posts off with some shots I snapped of the Hawaiian skies.  I do have to say that the colors in Hawaii are next level beautiful.  The skies are so blue and the sun so red, making for some of the most perfect sunrise and sunsets I’ve ever seen.  Enjoy and Happy Monday :-)!

Another Samurai sun!

It was only fitting that on my flight home I witnessed thee most un-real sunrise I have ever seen.

Zoomed out version of the photo above.

The light was shining right on Waikiki beach.

I have so many more blogs to come.  I’m rejuvenated and ready to get back to work as the new re-inspired (if that’s even a word) me 🙂  I promise I won’t include any sunrise or sunset photos in the next Hawaii posts, I just can’t help but love them.

Reef Hawaiian Pro on the North Shore

27 Nov

While in Hawaii, there was a huge series of surf contests happening on the famed North Shore.  I’ve always wanted to see one but the swell never seemed to work in my favor of days that I could make it.  It was really cool to see!  The water can be completely flat one minute and then come to life with huge swells the next.  Here are a few of my photos from the Reef Hawaiian Pro last week.

Here’s the next heat paddling out!

Next week will be a week of Hawaii posts since I have so many photos from the trip and didn’t share any last week 🙂

Welcome to Vacation!

I haven’t really been able to blog since I’ve been here but I thought I’d put a few pics up.  I have SO many to share and can’t wait to update my blog when I get back.  This place is amazing and I’m finding myself enjoying the downtime more than ever before : )
