Photo of the Week 68
I can’t believe my nearly two weeks in Oahu are over! But there’s no time to mope — I’m headed to the Big Island now. What a trip this has been. As with last week, I had a hard time narrowing things down — I need your votes!
I love the bright and colorful street art all over Oahu — there is such a vibrant arts community here.
On the famous North Shore, shrimp trucks are the local delicacy!
I think I’ve seen a rainbow almost every day in Oahu — but this one was my favorite.
On a sunset booze cruise off Waikiki, we saw the moon rise over Diamond Head, watched dolphins frolic in the surf and saw outrigger practice beneath the sunset.
Photo EAnother first time experience for me — ATV riding!
Photo FI’ve never been to a city quite like Honolulu — skyscrapers and palm trees side by side.

In other news, I’ve started a freelancing gig for Eagle Creek, the adventure outfitters company. My first post for them is now live, so check it out here: Flying High: The Best Zip Lines in the World.
It’s Hawaii…I vote for them all! Bright , cheery, and happy colors – what more could you want. Nice casual PS at the end – congrats!!
Ha, thanks Cat! I started writing pieces for them SO long ago it kind of feels like old news, even though the first post is only going live now. But it is exciting!
Photo E for me… It is so inviting.. It screams out to come and play 😀
The ATV’s were definitely an adventure! Sadly they wouldn’t let us go more than 15mph… so I’ll have to try it again someday to really get my fun out of it!
I love love love C, the rainbow, the surfboards, your shadows, palm trees and sky scrapers! A great shot!
Thank you so much Sarah! I love it for the same reasons… it’s like the perfect storm of Hawaii icons!
Photo A- wow the color of the ocean is so gorgeous in the right side photo!
It was definitely the most scenic hike I did in Oahu… and I did many!
Gotta go with E… reminds me of LOST and seeing as I still have dreams involving in on a weekly basis, yeah it’s fair to say I’m a bit biased lol
Indeed, many scenes of LOST were filmed at Kualoa Ranch! Most famously Hurley’s golf course scene 🙂 I’m thinking of rewatching the whole series after this trip.
I’m going with D. Juat because it’s a familair Hawaii kind of shot doesn’t mean it isn’t great!
Ha — I wondered when I saw this comment come through!
Geez, am I on the booze cruise with you?????
I spelled my own name wrong!
I love them all, especially A and B, but for some reason, that last shot of Honolulu is just so representative of the place (even though I’ve never been) that I have to go with F. Congrats on your new gig, look forward to checking out your post!!
Thanks Sarah! I fell hard for Honolulu… SUCH a cool city!
D for me,…Rod Stewart was right,…every picture tells a story.
Thanks for voting! I always love to see the reader faves.
I think E tells a story and I like the intensity of the foliage.
Definitely the reader favorite this week!
Alex! I am trying in vain to send you a message through your contact form, but the captcha monster keeps telling me 11+14 doesn’t equal 25. Gah. All I wanted to say was I’m so sorry for not seeing or responding to your lovely tweet to me from months ago. I am a complete Twitter spaz and only just now getting comfortable with it. My shiny new Hoot Suite app alerted me to the long-since sent/ignored message.
Anyway, so so sorry, and thank you. Seriously so kind of you. 🙁
Well I’m glad my Captcha code is operating at my own personal level of math skills. I am also a Twitter spaz and while I remember sending you a message or a tweet or something I can’t for the life of me recall what it said. I’m sure I should be embarassed though because I’m guessing it was something along the lines of OMG I LOVE YER BLOG! I’ve actually read you since your Weddingbee days, when I was an intern at a wedding company and writing their blogs. It’s actually crazy sometimes when I think how long I’ve been reading my favorite blogs. If we met at a party I’d be that creepy person telling you stories about your own dog.
But anyway, you’re so sweet to follow up! And I really need Hoot Suite.
D and E Like them best Love your work Keep sending Gram E
More to come soon! Sorry for the lack of posts this week — not great internet where I am on the Big Island.
Photo E obviouslyy
Have you ever seen black sand before? So cool!
