Hawaii has a special sort of siren hold over me. I have some sort of deeper connection to that place and whenever I go there, I feel like I am home. My family & I took a trip there to see friends and explored the big island of Hawaii and visited old favorites on Oahu and it was magical, as always. I am so blessed to be able to have visited so often. No underwater humpback whale encounter this time, but it was still amazing.

On our manta dive… my camera was malfunctioning on our night dive, however the dive was amazing and I highly recommend it for anyone! It was amazing to see so many mantas so close at night.

The things you see in Hawaii… we saw this menagerie alongside the road on our way back to our hotel.

Hawaiian buffalo and zebra and longhorn

Polou Valley beach… looks like something from the Pacific Northwest, not Hawaii! I loved this beach so much.
