Watery Wednesday

Thank you 2sweetnsaxy of Eyes Mind Heart for creating and hosting Watery Wednesday. You can visit by clicking on the button above to either share your own photos or just enjoy looking at others from around the world.

These photos were taken while on a boat off shore looking back at Waikiki in Oahu, Hawaii at the end of last year.

This beautiful pink building is The Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

It must have been pretty warm since I can't see anyone with a shirt on. lol!

Really interesting viewing all the houses on the hill. I've never been to Hawaii so I didn't know it was like that.

VALKYRIEN said...

I really love the lines in these shots, all the tall stricht houses in the back! Great shots!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Lovely shots of the hotel. You must have had a great time when you visited Hawaii.

Bryan said...

Great shots, particularly the second one with the colorful sailboat in front of the rather pink hotel.

Hello Denise
Thanks for the memories of several trips we have had to Hawaii (Oahu and some of the other islands)

The Pink Palace is a fabulous hotel - I had my birthday on our first visit and my 'treat' was to spend one night there.
We moved from the affordable apartment we'd had for the week across the road to the Royal Hawaiin for that one night before coming home.
Couldn't afford any more lol
Take care
Cathy

So, did you get to sit outdoors at the Royal Hawaiian's Mai Tai Bar and have (what else??) a Mai Tai -- decorated with an orchid?
:-D

Lilly said...

Ooh the water looks very tempting.

Carletta said...

That last shot is wonderful! Boy has the skyline grown since I was there years ago.

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

Kay said...

Very pretty, Denise! I wonder what made them decide to paint it pink.

Regina said...

These are really good shots. I love the harbor view.

Linnea W said...

Beautiful scenes especially with that colorful sailing boat drifting by...

Tricia said...

Look how steep that mountain is in the background w/ all the houses & buildings on it. Great shots!

Island Style said...

Beautiful shots! One day maybe soon, the ferry will come here to the Big Island (they I won't be able to resist). I haven't been to Oahu in so long.

diane said...

Great watery pics and good memories I suspect.

George said...

Beautiful pictures. I really like the palace.

2sweetnsaxy said...

Nice shots. Brings back memories of my trip there. :-)

I love the photo of the little sailing ship against the backdrop of the pink hotel.

Denise said...

Hi everyone, thank you so much for dropping in and leaving such nice comments. Always appreciated.

To answer your question The Right Blue, they were renovating this time round and the outside patio was closed off, but I remember drinking a Pink Paradise on a previous trip and yes a Mai Tai on another, complete with those beautiful orchids on top of the drink. I hope to repeat that experience next time around.

Have a great weekend everyone, and again thanks so much for stopping by.

I have stayed at the Royal Hawaiian, it is a one of a kind place. I love the contrast of it compared to all the cloned hi-rise hotels around it.
