This business we call real estate is a wonderful thing. It opens doors you could have never imagined. This year was the second consecutive year I was able to take another Mother/Daughter vacation. We stay at the famous Pink Palace or Royal Hawaiian Hotel on the beaches of Waikiki.
This year was a different experience all together since the Hotel underwent 85 million dollars of renovating. Of course there were the questions of why did they change that or wow that is new... I can sum it up from a statement made from our favorite Hawaiian server Stanton." You may have many fond memories of the Royal Hawaiian of old but now is the time to embrace new memories."
With this year also including my daughters it seemed quite a fitting statement. So we embraced all that was new.. Here are the new Pink umbrella's
We found that the pool had been completely redone as well with beautiful blue Pentel tile. It was a clear blue color that gave a look of the ocean.
They renovated the Historic wing of the hotel and replaced the carpeting and much more.
Throughout our stay the staff was wonderful, we saw many of the familiar faces we came to know last year and they have returned to greet
guests and share the wonderful hospitality known throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
This year was the first that I was able to meet up with fellow Activerain member Sally Cheeseman. From the very moment we met I knew she was going to be a hoot to hang out with. She is so vibrant and energetic. Armed with her camera, we were on our way. She had mentioned that the papers were touting that the beaches were empty so I was out to prove them wrong. As we had coffee and chatted in the beachside cafe at the Royal Hawaiian we overlooked Waikiki and it was teeming with visitors! We visited and talked about real estate, blogging and much more. Not sure how we squished it all in but by the time it was time for her to go it seemed like we had known each other for a long time. Of course we promised to keep our schedule open for another visit next year and I am already looking forward to it!
Isn't Real Estate Grand! Isn't Activerain Grand! Isn't the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki Grand!
Aloha and thank you for having a place to find new friendships.
