Just got back from the Hawaiian island of O’ahu, and I miss it already.
(Heck, I was already missing it by the time I’d settled into the plane ride home.)
Back here in my regularly-scheduled life, there’s no crash of 40-foot waves in my kitchen, no tropical breeze in my bedroom, no daily flourish of rainbows outside my windows, no lilt of ukelele and birdsong in my ears. Instead, my soundtrack is the far-off squeal of a firetruck siren, the text buzz of my iPhone, and the hornet-hum of a gas-powered leaf-blower.
Having spent a futile half-hour attempting to will myself back to O’ahu, I’ve decided instead to give in to reality and simply share my favorite photos from the island with you.
This way, we can all escape the noise — and feel the love.
My trip to O’ahu was arranged courtesy of the O’ahu Visitors Bureau,
but all photos, experiences and opinions expressed here are my own
