Every single day here is perfect. It’s been a few years since my visit, but at least that’s what I still imagine. Everywhere you look is a photograph. I’m glad we made this grand group of islands a state. A friend I met in Peru pointed out the fact that the United States is so diverse, you never really need to leave. We have it all. Well, I guess that depends who you ask. I think we have it all (but I still like the option of being able to leave). But I digress. Let us get back to these white sandy beaches in Hawaii.
The water was various shades of blue. It felt like I’d never seen these colors before. OK, I’m sure I had but maybe not in such large quantities. I’d love to take a month, rent a beach house and just BE here. Dogs ran free on the beach. People snorkeled in the surf. The smell of BBQ and exotic flowers were a constant. Yup, I was a spoiled American on vacation in Hawaii. I only went a few days and was just on the island of Oahu, which many Hawaii purists (or snobs) will say it’s not the real Hawaii since its so built up. Bologna, I say. It was Hawaii enough for me. That said, I want to visit the other islands one day. I need a good months vacation here. It’s good to want things. I bet AirBnB has some deals. Now to just get a month off work, hmmm. I don’t see it happening anytime soon, but one day.
A hui hou kakou Hawaii…A hui hou kakou (until we meet again).
Have you been to Hawaii? What were your thoughts?
