It has been an amazing 4 days here in Hawaii! We’ve been able to spend a lot of time together as a family and have gotten some much needed R & R after a really stressful few months.
I’m sitting here at the Hale Koa Hotel pool right in front of the beach, sitting on a lounge chair, and enjoying my last 4.5 hours before we have to head to the airport.
Yesterday was a super gloomy day, the sun didn’t peek out after 9 am and it was pouring! But that didn’t stop us! Charlie and I walked a couple miles to see what new things Waikiki had in store for us. It seems like every time we come here it’s changed so much since the last.
We arrived on Thursday night at 9:40 pm Hawaii time. We took a nice Tesla Uber to the Hale Koa Hotel where we’ve been staying the last 4 days. Hale Koa is absolutely one of the best hotels to stay in when you’re in Oahu. It’s a military owned hotel so only active/retired military or people sponsored by military can stay, but it’s a beautiful hotel. It has everything we ever need when we’re here. There’s a convenience store that sells everything from Macadamia Nut Coffee to good quality take out sushi to souvenirs.
They also have a beautiful lobby area that is perfect for lounging and people watching. There’s plenty of places to sit and they even have a craft show where local artisans can sell their goods (right up my alley!)
But the best part? The hotel has a gorgeous beach front view. They have a huge pool area that is right next to a bar, snack bar, and the beach so you have everything you need just steps away!
If you follow me on Instagram or have even been following along on this blog you’ll know how much I love Hawaii. There’s just something so special and magic about this place, it gets me every time. The people, the pace of life, the nature, the scenery, the food, everything about it is just so different from home. This place never gets old. So thank you, Hawaii, for another beautiful time. Til the next time, Aloha 🌺
