Honolulu, How Do You Do?

Posted on March 15, 2015

This actually comes earlier in the Jody-and-Greg cruise timeline than Samoa… they swung through Honolulu, a city with which I am intimately acquainted ^_^.  Hawaii probably needs no introduction for followers of this site, so without further ado, here are some beautiful photographs! Advertisements

Where the Locals Go: Ala Moana Beach, Honolulu, Hawai’i

Posted on February 10, 2012

A stone’s throw from the Ala Moana Shopping Center, just northwest of famous Waikiki Beach, a lovely stretch of sand with a local vibe calls you to dip your feet in the water, build a sand castle, or just sit on the nearby lawn with a picnic. Ala Moana Beach Park feels like a great […]

Edible Beach Treasures: A Seaside Smorgasbord!

Posted on January 25, 2018

Once upon a time, I lived in Honolulu, and I have a number of Hawaiian friends who were happy to find and eat raw sea creatures on day trips to the beach.  It’s part of the culture, though I have to admit, I found it a little bit yucky.  You see, while thousands of people […]

Happy New Year!

Posted on December 31, 2012

OK, maybe it doesn’t come close to the Sydney New Year’s US$6.9 million fireworks extravaganza from the steel arch Habour Bridge, and it has nothing near the glitz of the First Night celebration with the well known Zambelli Fireworks spectacular over Boston Harbor, but it is a room with a great view and a fireworks […]

The Magic of Magic Island

Posted on December 3, 2012

Let me tell you a story.  Once upon a time, someone started building a resort adjacent to Ala Moana Beach Park in Honolulu, Hawaii.  The company got as far as making a man-made peninsula aaaaaaaaaaaaaand…. stopped.  Rumor has it, they ran out of money.  Anyhow, the resort was going to be called “Magic Island,” and […]

Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay – a Perfect Day!

Posted on September 24, 2012

Today’s Featured Writer is Vic Dinovici of Hop Tours.  His guest post is a fun bit of accurately detailed fiction that could just as well be any of a hundred different people’s story.  It is certainly more universal than my quirky story last April…  Enjoy! -E.G.D. Special thanks to our friend F. Travis Riley for […]

Signs that make you go “Yikes!”

Posted on June 25, 2012

If you’ve been to Oahu some time after 1990, you probably have this shot in your vacation collection! This photo has probably been taken a million times by tourists over the years. I, of course, am no exception. In fact, I take a few shots of this very image every time I’m on Waikiki Beach! […]

Iconic Chinaman’s Hat, Windward Oahu

Posted on April 30, 2012

A geographic icon, Mokoli’i Island (aka Chinaman’s Hat) is a must-see when you travel along the beautiful Windward Coast of Oahu. Seen in movies (50 First Dates) and on postcards, this island is named for its shape, which resembles the straw hats Chinese immigrants once wore. On a beautiful summer day, my sister and I rented a car […]
