Somewhere over the Rainbow
December 8, 2010 § Leave a comment
I’ve been absent from blogging for a while since I’ve been in a constant state of transition since the beginning of December.
Don & I made it to Hawaii & it is absolutely gorgeous! More beautiful than I’d imagined, with way more to do than I’d imagined.
In our first week here we’ve managed to find an awesome condo that’s just blocks away from Waikiki beach and a short walk from this place –The Ala Moana mall (me within walking distance from a mall of this size = danger).
The condo is great. The view looks over a park and a canal that separates Waikiki from Honolulu. Just past the row of condos on the other side of the canal is Waikiki beach. There’s also a big track along the perimiter of the canal that’s going to make a great place to run.
There hasn’t been a lot of down time to explore yet since we’ve been trying to set up the condo and finding cars etc. But we did take a beautiful drive up the east coast & stopped to snap a picture of the infamous beach were “From Here to Eternity” was filmed.
Once we get settled in I’ll have so much more to share. I’ve already got a list a mile long of things to see and do. The movers are coming with our household goods on Friday – yay, no more air mattress! – and once we’re all moved in there’ll be plenty of time for exploring!
