Many years ago my DH was a Navy pilot and stationed on the island of Oahu. Naturally, we enjoy returning and seeing the changes made over the years. We love the easy life on the North Shore and like to base ourselves up there.
Everyday we watched beautiful sunrises from our balcony and gorgeous sunsets as we sipped Mai Tais and Blue Hawaiis at the outdoor lounge.
Our homes where we lived have often changed over the years, but it is always nice to revisit them and recall the terrific times we enjoyed.
|This was our house. It has definitely seen better days. Our view stretched the entire coastline from Diamond Head towards Makaha.|
|There were no gates when we lived up on the 8th floor of this building.|
|...and this was our backyard!!!!!|
|The hospital when our second son was born.|
|Lots of time for looking upwards at the graceful palm trees.|
|Surfboards are as good as hoses on a fire truck.|
If we had not had the wonderful recommendations for the shrimp trucks, we would have never stopped. They were fabulous and most generous in their servings.
|Even the limos stop here.|
|There were chickens running loose everywhere. This little one had managed to get on the road and we all stopped while mom carefully got it over to the side.|
|Loved the dog with a lei on the beach.|
The BEST shaved ice on the island!!!!!
How much sewing did I get done???? I picked up my cross stitch project on the flight home. It was a long flight though so I did get a few stitches done.
BTW....I switched back to the old interface on Blogger and managed to access Blogger with no problems. I guess it is the new interface that kept giving me the error message on my desktop. VERY strange. Any one else have that problem?
