This photo is from the Polihua shore of the Island of Lana’i. This little guy almost got stepped on, as you can see, because he blends into the sand quite nicely. He surely wasn’t afraid of us, but took of pretty dang quickly when we got too close.
This photo, from the tunnel, is on The Challenge at Manale Bay, on Lana’i. Every single hole has breath-taking views. You almost forget about your scorecard… almost.
Today, i get to golf the Challenge at Manele Bay, designed by Jack Nicklaus. This course is beautiful and every hole has a view of the Pacific Ocean. It’s so beautiful that Bill and Melinda Gates were married on the 12th hole. And I get to golf here… *phew* How people keep correcting us when…
A view from the clubhouse at The Challenge at Manele Bay. In the distance you can see “sweetheart rock.” Local lore tells of a sea warrior who locked up his most beautiful wife and during a storm, she drowned. So distraught, he made a burial shrine on the rock, then jumped to his death.
This pagoda is next to a giant Koi pond and a great orchid garden, near to a babbling brook and waterfall and just a hop away from a well manicured golf course. It’s the epitome of relaxation.
This photo, the rooster tail from our snorkeling catamaran. Say hello to the most beautiful water in the world. Just off the coast of Lanai, Hawaii. This post, by the way, is from on the boat. Aloha
This trip in Lanai, Hawaii is absolutely breathtaking, peaceful, and downright awe-inspiring. We traveled around the shores of Lanai today and we saw this beautiful beach and this 1940’s shipwreck.
I”m of to paradise today. I’m off to visit the great state of Hawaii! This will bring my total number of states visited to: 9 – Also, it’ll be the first time I’ve flown over the ocean. I’m extremely excited for this trip. Ah, life is a gate, a way, a path to Paradise anyway,…
