Tuesday Travelogue-January 20th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our twenty-ninth week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:

 

" to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

 and hopefully much more!

 

(Be sure and click on the links in blue.)

Today it's Hawaii!!!! Woo hoo!

 

Keawakapu Beach, Kihei Maui HI

Georgie Hunter is who I always think of first when wandering off to Hawaii in my dreams. This beach in Kihei, Maui is one of the many splendors that I've actually had the opportunity to enjoy. My husband and I got married right near here in 2000 after spending a glorious vacation together here the year before in Wailea, nearby.

Georgie always delivers visual goodies with each blogpost and here is just one more quick photo from a resort in Wailea, HI. (Of course, there are MANY resorts to be found in Hawaii!)

Makena Surf Resort, Makena Maui HI

I had to give a shout-out to Celeste "Sally" Cheeseman, because she is a long-standing ActiveRain Ambassador who spreads Hawaiin love to all of us!

Kimo Stowell is a newer blogger on ActiveRain and he shows us one of the traditions of Hawaii--surfing--with a twist O'ahu style!

 

 

 I'm adding another piece to this....my friends whom I just sold their Fishhawk Lake home in September of last year have been in Hawaii for the last month. 

This whale watching video is short, but absolutely AMAZING!! 

 

 

Please don't forget to comment on these blogposts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. Feel free to join our group:

Travelers in the Rain!

Maybe we all should have a MeetUp in Hawaii and go on a whale watching trip? Georgie Hunter  can set it up for us and we'll make sure that Sally Cheeseman puts together some local shopping for Tammie White so she doesn't have to worry about the too-close-for-comfort trip!!

Who's with me???????????

I would love to be on the Island of Maui right now Gayle - so much to see and do! I love the Big Island as well-particularly the lava fields.  It's a great trip and you are a great gal for sharing this with all of us.

Let the sunshine.  We have had a pretty mild winter for New Hampshire, however, I crave more sunshine.  Thanks for taking us to sunny places.

Gayle, when I went to Maui, part of the deal was a daytrip to visit Sally, and it was amazing fun!  Sally is an ActiveRain treasure.
