Dream Vacation: Part Two

Obviously, I didn't take this photo, but it shows how BIG our bed was. The name of the hotel we stayed in is the Ohana Waikiki Surf East.

Our camera then was a pocket-size point-and-shoot camera so no close-ups of the birds.  Even the birds seemed exotic to me.  Hawaii was everything I wanted it to be and MORE!



My lovely purse was a gift from the parents of one of my students.  Lucky lady, eh?  I had my hubby take the picture to show the family how much I love it!
Our vacation package included a free breakfast at the Radisson Hotel  in Waikiki.  That, in turn, helped us pick other choices included in our package.  One was the Polynesian Cultural Center which was so fabulously entertaining and educational.  I LOVE learning, especially in such beautiful surroundings.  

We didn't buy anything here, but it was fun to "window" shop.

One of the things I love about hotels in the US is the size of the beds!

I've been to Hawaii twice and absolutely loved it both times. This brings back memories!

Ok I didn't see "Part I" yet because I am behind on the blogs.

When did you go?
I ADORE Hawaii!
We were in Kauai 5 yrs ago, loved it!

Caren,
This dream trip was in 2002. Part one showed our photos from visiting the Arizona Memorial. I've done this in chronological order because I wasn't great at organizing the photos on my CD. oh, well.
