Aloha Friday Week #1

I haven't really said much about my time in Hawaii since I came back to the mainland. So, in honor of my extended stay there and my nostalgia for the palm trees, Pacific Ocean and Aloha spirit during this cold weather, I've decided to have a weekly Aloha series this month! Each week, I'll feature some of my Hawaii favorites.

This week's favorites are BEACHES:

Lanikai Beach - For peacefulness and beautiful views

Bellows Field Beach Park - For waves, a bit more privacy, and beautiful views

Cockroach Cove - For hidden gems i.e. monk seal swimming near by, a cave, and cool surroundings


Hanauma Bay - For snorkeling and amazing historical background and views

Army Recreation Center on Pokai Bay - for calm, clear water with cartoon-esque backdrops


  1. Just gorgeous!!!! We are hoping to be in Hawaii next year for vacation.

  2. These beautiful pics reinforce why Hawaii is in my top 5 places to visit! : )
