|Bye JJ and Maizie!|
|Bye beautiful green mountain of Manoa valley!|
|The waves come from two different directions. Cool!|
|My footsteps in the sand|
|Amara found some coral.|
|Family selfie with the ocean!|
|Some of the shoreline was actually rock, not sand.|
|I don't know what this is, but it came from the sea and it's very intriguing. It is to me a testament of God's glory, imagination, and creativity.|
|Look! The bushes here are all flowery!|
Joe took us to Nandings Bakery to enjoy some fresh Filipino delights. There were many gorgous offerings and we ended up purchasing a half dozen of them.
|Look at all those confections!|
|I loved the ube silang.|
|These were so very good and a great snack for the airport and for our flight, too.|
Hawaii was the perfect family vacation. Hanging out with Joe's family was bliss. Seeing the tropcial landscapes, tasting the local flavors, paying the supreme prices (ok, not that), added charm to our experience. I'm so glad we were able to make this happen!We said goodbye to Joe as he drove us to the airport after lunch, and ended up flying across the ocean in the evening and arriving in Sacramento at 11pm. We pretended to sleep at the airport, then boarded our plane to Vegas at 6am and then we finally boarded our flight back to Salt Lake around 9am.
