Images From Around Beautiful Pensacola Beach, Florida

Pensacola Water Tower It has been quite cold here in Colorado lately and I am missing the warmth we had while in Hawaii. Sadly, we won’t be back to Hawaii for a little while, but we do have a trip to Florida coming this summer, so that will be nice. It made me start thinking about our last trip to Florida when we spent time part of a week playing in Pensacola.   Continue reading Images From Around Beautiful Pensacola Beach, Florida

Hawaii State Capitol Building – Aloha State

Hawaii State Capitol BuildingOur continual pursuit of visiting all 50 state capitol buildings led us to the Hawaii State Capitol in Honolulu. We have been to more than half of the capitols, and this one had some of the most friendly workers and tour guides. We could definitely feel the aloha spirit here. Before we even started the tour, we were let into one of the offices to take a picture of their Bronze State Seal. I love the seals, and this was so nice of them to let us do this.  Continue reading Hawaii State Capitol Building – Aloha State

Where To Get the Best Plate Lunches On Oahu

One of the things that everyone told me I would enjoy while in Hawaii (besides the ocean of course)  was the food, especially the plate lunches. I didn’t know exactly what that meant  yet, but I quickly found out and we had quite a few plate lunches during our visit. Actually, it was pretty much all we ate. Below are four of the places we enjoyed the most while on the island. Continue reading Where To Get the Best Plate Lunches On Oahu

Enjoyed Seeing the Ocean at Huntington Beach in CA

Huntington Beach 1As stated in many previous posts, I am thrilled to be living in Colorado now but there are a few things I miss about the Golden State of California. I miss our family and friends of course which is why we keep coming back to visit so often. However while we are there, I also love eating at a few restaurants that aren’t in CO (come on In n Out, get with the program, lol) as well as the ocean. There is just nothing like it. We usually try to get to one of our two favorites Seal Beach and Huntington Beach. This last trip we made it to Huntington Beach. Even though it was cold, and the water was probably beyond freezing, we enjoyed being in the area. Continue reading Enjoyed Seeing the Ocean at Huntington Beach in CA
