Oh Oahu

Hi to all! Feels like forever since my last post on the the New Year. The festivities are officially over and I’m slowly returning blogging again. I caught a very bad cold and cough and spend more than three weeks inside the house in a quarantine mood, between bed and couch, so weak that was impossible to do anything. The cough was the worst part and took a lot of energy out of me and hurt the stomach and throat.

I’m feeling so much better now and have my strength back, working almost full time with new projects and in process of updating the new Bella Bohemian Boutique since this year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary. Stay tuned in the meantime don’t forget to stop by for your Valentine’s Day gifts  😉

Last year we had a wonderful trip to Hawaii where I wrote a few posts about Maui (Part 1, Part 2) our first stop. Since I hadn’t had the time to continue to write my adventures, today I’ll start the first post of the year to continue the story in photos and words of this beautiful island.

After Maui we were very pleased to be in Ohau. Though to my surprise the island was very busy with a lot of tourists from everywhere especially Asians. We went around the end of September to the middle of October, thinking there would be less people … Also the weather was temperamental from one Island to the other. One side was a pretty with blue skies, the other side was hot and humid without any wind. (This time we stayed in Kailua)

Soon we left Kailua and drove to visit Waikiki where we had (what was to us ) this unusual experience as we hit a strong rain storm that shook the Jeep, it was unlike anything else I’ve ever seen before and with thunder too.

I adore this photo of father and son fishing together. I had to stop by and take it. I took a few shots but this one was the closest I could get. I didn’t want to disturb or even intrude on their moment.

I saw this lovely lady modeling/photographed for a wedding bridal boutique on the streets of Waikiki. And she graciously let me take this photo. Thank you Naomi!!

It wasn’t easy to take this photo, took me a lot of patience and waiting for a while — Red-crested Cardinal.
