Hawaiian Flowers


In January my wife and i went to Hawaii.I have allways wanted to go ever since watching Hawaii 5-0 on the telly back in the 70’s,saw some wonderful sights and some beautiful flowers thst i thought you might like to see :

Also a bit of snorkelling and swimming with turtles was just amazing

we also saw loads of whales too there are in Hawaii this time of year to have their cubs.
This is as close as i could get for photo as i kept missing them

and swimming with turtles was amazing too

This is just a snapshot of what we saw and hope you enjoy looking at just a few of the photo’s

Hi's wonderful to be in a tropical place isn't it....amazing colours, especially that incredible deep orange orchid! IVe never swum with turtles...I would LOVE that. I got so excited snorkelling in the shallows in St Lucia last year. It was the highlight of our holiday for me, so I can imagine how you felt. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you everyone it was brill.

Thanks it was amazing i love snorkelling from the first time i tried it which was only a couple of years ago in the caribbean.
Next time your out that way go to stingray city its brilliant That orange one was my favorite you can buy them there where $60 for 6 ( about £40.) i think but you can't bring them back here i beleive.
One of the orchid flowers was the size of my hand it was huge but that pic wouldn't upload as it is too big for goy.

Ydd i would love to do that but the nearest i have got is watching pods swim by

Didn't see Danno or Steve although i did have to say book him Danno as you do lol.
Did walk by Dog the Bounty Hunters office in Honalulu
although i was more worried of meeting mrs dog she's very scary :o))

Those are amazing photos! I knew you would love my native Hawaii! So glad you got to experience all the tropical flora there! :>)

I haven't been back to Hawaii since my family reunion back in August of 2009 (you probably remember all the photos I posted on GoY). I'm over due for visiting all my family members.

Palmate i think you are overdue a vist i think you might be in trouble if you don't visit soon lol

1 Apr, 2013


I'm already in trouble! I told all my family I would return in two years! LOL!

I don't really like traveling on the plane these days! I just hate all the security issues and cramped planes! I used to travel a lot and go to Hawaii every other year, for many, many years.

Wow David ,Lucky you it looks like paradise such fantastic colours and to see the whales and swim with the turtles it's a dream come true ... I'm wondering why I didn't see this at the time I can see why it was when we were away ourselves in March !
