I was just thinking about all of the panoramas that I’ve taken with my iPhone in Hawaii, and I thought, why not post my favorites? PS: The iPhone panorama feature is soooooooo much fun! I don’t need a new hobby, but it just happened! I’m powerless to resist!
…wow, that took a lot longer than I thought it would. I hope that you enjoy! *goes back to work*
Eating on Waikiki Beach…
The view from a friend’s balcony. I am so jealous… they get this apartment as part of the low-income housing. It’s a 2BR, with a panoramic view of the ocean for only $1200…. people pay millions for that view. ToT I want in, but there’s a huge waiting list.
We hiked to this pretty waterfall, which to date is still my favorite hike!
This is turtle beach!! Yes, there were huge turtles, but they wouldn’t come up on the beach. Too bad!! This is really near Disney’s Aulani resort, which I haven’t had a chance to go to yet. I would like to, though!
This is another hike.. I like hiking, but it’s not my favorite thing. However, because it’s free and people invite me, I seem to go a lot…. I need to get in better shape! Working on it…. Anyways, isn’t the view gorgeous?
Then, we ended up at these gooooooooorgeous tidepools. Huge tidepools that you could swim in, and were full of tropical fish. See them down there? The water went over my head in most places! And when you were sitting in them, sometimes a powerful wave would come up and rush the shore, causing the water to spill into the tidepools and sweep you way back, over the rocks. I got a bit scraped up, but it was so much fun! I really, really want to go back.
This is in Kailua, the “rich” part of the island. I personally prefer Honolulu, and this part doesn’t seem particularly rich to me, as the houses mostly look average suburban-style, but if you want to live on Oahu and not in the city, this is probably the best place. Obama even vacations here!
