I was recently looking at photos from our last Hawaiian vacation, remembering fond memories and longing to be back. Hawaii is difficult to describe for people who have never been there. Hawaii is not like Florida or the Caribbean. There is such a different feel – there’s tranquility, magnificence, beauty, and natural splendor.
Since my parents didn’t like to travel and didn’t have much means to do so, I didn’t visit the Aloha state until my husband’s parents took us when we were 25. I was completely captivated. No other place that I’ve visited has transfixed me so much.
Last year, we were fortunate to be able to take our girls to Hawaii. I was so happy to be able to share with them my favorite islands, beaches, and adventures. Hawaii is truly magical. Nature shows us the best it has to offer here when you stand atop lava rocks, watch sea turtles swim, and experience sunset in the Pacific.
The following are a few photos of mine of Hawaii, specifically Kauai and the Big Island. I also added a little Hawaiian inspiration to brighten your day. It makes you want to be there, doesn’t it?
