Another Day in Paradise

The morning is very uplifting and the plumeria smells are so inspiring. We were enjoying our breakfast that I cooked (bacon and eggs) at the balcony and saw bunch of people having fun at the pool.
Yes, it’s pool time once again but we decided to walk at the beach to the black rock first. We had a little action with the gushing waves. Geee, I wished those waves are not that wild, lol! The neighboring island covered with cotton-candy clouds looked like Camiguin to me.

We had a great time at the pool and guess what? I joined the kids with the slide adventure, lol! It was so much fun!
We drove around town and saw the “pride and joy” of Maui, the Bunyan tree- the biggest in the world. Wow! That tree occupied the whole block! It gives a cozy shade though, very interesting!
We walked through the harbor and saw some submarine adventure signs. We bought tickets and off we went for the underwater quest for the first time. Yeah, that’s very exciting! We rode through a little ferry to where the sub is and as the tour guide counted 1 to 5… and oh, we were so ready with our camera.
The submarine getting ready to surface:D
Oh, there it is! Awesome!

We went down as far as 150 feet. It was very cool!



As we sailed back to the island, there is this familiar smell of the ocean and the sticky feeling from the salt water. Ah, the island life! I remember that (wink, wink).

We went back to the hotel, soaked in the pool. Grab some Italian dinner and shared a glass of MaiTai with the hotel's spectacular view! Yes, another day in paradise!

Yes, having a carefree stroll and swim in the world famous beach of Hawaii can indeed be likened to a day in paradise. That submarine trip looks pretty exciting. Not all people are privileged to have such experience. Thanks for the wonderful post. God bless you always.

Ahhhh ... nice to read about Hawaii. I left that paradise two months ago and changed it for another paradise in the Philippines. I still smell the plumerias here but get most of everything else at a nice low price. Glad to see tourists spending some money in Hawaii ... lol ... the government needs more tax dollars.

You amazingly captured the beauty of a magical place. Your pictures are outstanding. I was stationed in Oahu in 1967 and haven't had a chance to get back. Thank you for bringing back the memories of the Hawaiian Islands to me.
