On my first trip to Hawaii with my husband, we stayed at my parents' condo at Makaha shores... It was the perfect honeymoon getaway - nice and mellow, away from the crazy tourist action of Waikiki, but close enough to everything that we never got bored.
Part way into the trip we stopped in to a local drug store to stock up on "slippers" and sunscreen & we had the sweetest girl ringing up our finds. She told us she'd never left the islands, and she wasn't sure she wanted to... "everyone here is just so... 'aloha'," she said. That's when we learned that "aloha" isn't just a greeting, but a way of life...
I'm pretty sure some of these pics from one of last summer's J. Crew catalogs were taken right down the road from my parents' place and every time I see this page I get the urge to call up Hawaiian Airlines and schedule a flight. For now, though, we'll enjoy our beautiful Seattle summer weather and a nice little weekend.
