The Aloha State: O’ahu and Kaua’i

The view from the top of Diamond Head, a volcano crater in O’ahu, Hawaii:

A local Christmas dance performance at the center stage of Ala Moana Center, the largest open-air shopping center in the world:

There were roosters all over the island, wherever we go:


Drawings on the wall, Honolulu Airport:

Fishing trip, the fishing rods on the ceiling of the boat:


our first catch, a Moano fish!

A sign on the beach, Man-of-War is the name of a Portuguese jellyfish:

Tahiti Dancers in Po’ipu, Kaua’i (Hawaiian girls are beautiful):

Opaekaa Fall, Kaua’i:


Uluwaihi Falls (this was where the Evil Path of Mosquitos led me to!):

A lighthouse (you can see the weather was cloudy, but it did give the scenary a slightly melancholy feel…):

High Surf (part of the good things that came with having a post-storm weather was the roaring high surf. It’s more spectacular seeing it in person):


The magnificent taro field in Hanalei, Kaua’i:

Polynesia Cafe, a plate of local Kalua Pork and Cabbage, Lomi Lomi Salmon, and Ahi Poke (which had been mostly consumed before I remembered to take the shot :-p):

Salad with the delicious papaya seed dressing, a local favorite:

Wailua Falls:

Spouting Horn (the wave was so strong it pushed right through a hole in the rocks and spout to over 20 feet high):

The famous Roy’s Hawaiin Fusion Cuisine (Blackened Ahi, Monchong fish, and Chocolate Souffle):
