Waikiki Beach

Here I am with my mini me on Waikiki Beach. We were taking a stroll, heading to the Honolulu Zoo. I’ll share pics from the zoo trip on a later post. We had so much fun at the zoo that it deserves it’s own post.

One thing I kind of expected but wasn’t fully prepared for was the color in Hawaii. The colors are so vibrant. The blues are bluer, the greens are greener, the pinks are . . .well, you get my point.

Royal Hawaiian Waikiki Beach

We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. It is a gorgeous hotel with shops, restaurants and pools. Waikiki Beach is literally right outside the doors.

I stayed in the Mailani Tower, which includes even more perks. There are complimentary breakfasts, appetizers and cocktails. Plus the rooms have balconies.

Waikiki Beach

This is the view from my balcony. I know, pinch me!

It was gorgeous. I loved sitting out on the balcony early in the morning while I enjoyed my coffee. Perfection.

Hawaiian Dancers

There were shops, restaurants and shows right next to the Royal Hawaiian. This photo was taken during a traditional Hawaiian dance show. Me and the kiddo enjoyed the show while digging into some shave ice.

Hawaii Shave Ice

Our favorite treat! Shave ice with boba and mochi . . . So Good. That alone was worth a five hour flight!

Stay tuned for more about our Hawaiian adventure. . .
