Thursday Thirteen #38-The Oahu One

Thirteen Pictures from Oahu

First, a real quick plug, if you have not read it yet, scroll down two posts to see a entry done by Mrs Duck. I am trying to get her to write on this blog some more and she finally did a post, and I want to be sure it gets shared.

Ok, commercial break over. One year ago this week, we were living it up in Hawaii. I took so many great pictures, though it was close to impossible not to take a good picture. Being the smart blogger that I am, I figure I can share 13 pictures from Oahu and still have a few posts left over from the rest of the trip. So, 13 pictures from our stay in Waikiki.

1.Oahu 1
Diamond Head

2.oahu 2
yep, more Diamond Head

3.oahu 3
I think Tug has this one on her blog.

4.oahu 4
Even the rain clouds are pretty over Honolulu.

5.Oahu 5
They are like happy little ants down there.

6.Oahu 6
Are these Otters or Sea Lions? Anyone? Bueller?

7.Oahu 7
Sometimes, Dolphins move way too fast to get a good shot of them.

8.oahu 8
It is no wonder that they shoot Lost around the Islands.

9.Oahu 9
The Royal Hawaiian, where we stayed. And yes, it is pink.

10.Oahu 10
See, more proof it's pink.

11.Oahu 11
A very very old Coconut Tree

12.Oahu 12
Everyone says Mai Tais are the best drinks on Oahu, I vote for Lava Flows and Mojitos myself.

13.oahu 13
Goodnight Waikiki, Goodnight Thursday Thirteen.

Now there is a part of me that thinks I have done this list before, but Goddess who cares, look how pretty it is.

Wow...what beautiful pics. I would love to visit Hawaii, let alone live there. It's always very high up on the list of things I would do if I won the lottery.

My TT is up...and come on over already!

Christina said...

Oh...I wanna go to Hawaii! *stomp, pout* Very nice pictures, makes me feel like I'm almost there. Happy Thursday!!

Tug said...

Thanks for the plug Sparky!! (I have #5...)

Rhian / Crowwoman said...

those are some gorgeous photos Sparks!! the water is such an amazing color!

EC said...

So beautiful!! And they are otters - sea lions "I think" are the older males, but I'm not totally sure, but I do know the small ones are seals or otters.

Carolan Ivey said...

Hey, we went to Hawaii last year, too! Nice pictures - brings back a lot of memories. :)

I think those are sea lions.

Meg - Bad Homeschool Mom said...

Ok. It's official ducky.
I officially hate you.
Go and shove your pretty pictures where the sun don't shine (like here in stupid georgia!)

Excuse me while I wipe my tears. I am so sad that I am not there right now. I would love to go there someday.

Babystepper said...

Number 5 almost had me wiping my eyes, too. I can't wait until that mythical, mystical someday when my children will be old enough, and we'll have enough money, for a Hawaii vacation.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

smiles, bee

Pen said...

Amazing pix! I am a big fan of bad weather pictures. The rain cloud picture is calling my name!

Christine said...

I'd be a happy little ant too, laying on that beach,sipping a nice refreshing mojito, and staying at the Royal Hawaiian.
Very beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing. :)

Have a great Thursday!

Starrlight said...

Christie said...

oh i have hawaii-envy. big time. hubby says we can go if we go for two weeks, but to that i say, "bah!" we'll never go if we have to put aside two weeks, it would be impossible! anyway, beautiful pictures, beautiful list. sniff.

Bond said...

HEY...where are the photos of the stones???? you know the first night there...the stones?????
I shouted to you today on THE COUCH!


FRIGGA said...

That's beautiful!
Happy TT13!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Dude, you could run those once a month and I'd be happy. Amazingly gorgeous.

One day I'll get there. One day.

Happy TT, love! And yes, Mrs. Duck SHOULD visit more often!

Christine said...

I would love to visit there someday. I love the picture of the rain clouds. And in my opinion I would guess sea lions. Look too big to be otters.

colleen said...

Hey, how do they get the umbrellas so orderly in number 5? It looks like heaven!

Titania Starlight said...

Those are absolutely beautiful. I have never been to Hawaii but I have it on my to do list.:o)

Stunning pictures! Much better looking than the airport. :)

Joy Renee said...

gorgeous pics. I have a soft spot for Hawaii ever since my husband and I got enganged over the phone while he was stationed there shortly after he'd been home on leave. I've heard an awful lot about it but have never gotten any closer than a photograph.

thanx for visiting my tt tribute to my husband's grandma who passed on Tuesday.
