While many people think of the holiday season as consisting of snow and hot chocolate and other winter festivities, we much prefer sun and ocean and warmth for the holidays. And so off we went to Hawaii for Christmas!
Honolulu never disappoints. (Nor does the Halekulani where we were staying.). We enjoyed warmth and ocean views.
And beautiful sunrises.
And equally beautiful sunsets.
Marcus and I took surfing lessons (and I graduated to an 11’ hardtop at his insistence). (Jade would have joined us, but, you know, a broken leg is a bit of an impediment…)
We even went to see “Hamilton,” which was playing at the Blaisdell Center. It, too, never disappoints!
Oh, and a session on how to make a pahi kauna, a traditional Hawaiian war dagger.
And, as always, there was delicious food—a wonderful dinner at tbd…, a Christmas dinner at Roy’s, and a lavish Christmas Eve brunch at Orchid’s.
New Year’s Eve was a casual dinner cooked at home with some close friends (family, really).
But we’re getting old so we celebrated New Year’s Eve on London time and allowed the kids to scatter to their own celebrations.
We hope you had a wonderful holiday season!! Here’s to a fabulous 2023!!
