Q - Sunset in Hawaii

Q - Sunset in Hawaii

When Bo and I married, he asked me where was the one place I would like to go, and I told him that I had always dreamed of going to Hawaii. One day he came in from working in the yard and said "how would you like to go to Hawaii?" and of course you know what my answer was - "when?” He said as soon as you can make the arrangements. So you can bet it did not take me very long to make those reservations.

We flew into Oahu and spent three days in Honolulu before boarding a beautiful NCL ship. We had a beautiful suite with a balcony from where we watched the flying fish. Yes, there is such a thing. The long wait for my dream vacation was definitely worth it. We cruised the islands for seven days, stopping at a private island called Fanning Island which is owned by NCL. Fanning Island is the top of an old volcano west of Hawaii and across the International Date Line. The people are very primitive and their lifestyle is very primitive. The island had one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on. The trip took half of the night to get there and then half of a day to get back to the other islands. I highly recommend this fabulous cruise. When we returned to Honolulu, we stayed three days. For those of you who have not been to this beautiful place, I hope you will be able to go. What a romantic and fun place to go.

I have been on cruises to the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Alaska, and the Hawaiian Islands. I have also seen a lot of Mexico, both while growing up and later after I was grown. As you can see, I have been blessed beyond words to be able to travel and see some of this beautiful world that the Lord has made for us. Bo and I would still like to travel more if possible.
