Honolulu is a dream. I took a couple of days off from work to visit this charming island, capital of Hawaii. Once you arrive the folks do wanna help you with directions to your hotel or any other park, mall or beach that you wanna visit right away. How convenient that Waikiki Beach is only a few minutes drive away from downtown. Got to see all the landmarks from the hit show Hawaii 5-0. Locals do visit the beaches and are seen relaxing everywhere on days off. Pictured here taking the view, got a chance to take a nap, swim and enjoy the cool blue water. The ocean is fantastic after a 5 hour flight from Seattle. Next, I am going to Calgary and will post photos from this fantastic and super friendly city north of the USA, in Canada.
