Hawaii Is Beautiful Day 3

Parts of Jurassic Park were filed here. This is also the home of grass-fed happy bovines. The bunker from Lost is in here, that they said was enhanced significantly with CGI. I didn’t watch the show, so I cannot comment. The sights at this ranch are breath-taking. Enjoy!

Hawaii Is Beautiful Day 2: Buddhists To The Rescue

After the grinding tour guide and the emotional gulag that was Pearl Harbor, we recuperated at a Buddhist temple. The peace on the grounds of the temple is impossible to write about. It felt like a soothing balm to my fractured emotions.

Hawaii Is Beautiful Day 1

I have so many thoughts about our Hawaii trip, and getting all the words I have to say about it out will take hours. Here’s the summary. There was more rain and overcast days than we were expecting. But it felt so liberating to wear shorts and flip-flops and the scenery was so stunning we were thrilled regardless of our missed expectations. I’ve had the privilege of traveling quite a bit, and Hawaii is probably the most naturally beautiful place I have ever been.  I have more to say, but for now, here’s some pictures. Note that both Jeannine and I took these, so this isn’t just my shots.
