Waikiki Part 2

8.08.2008

So I took quite a bit of photos that day when we were in Waikiki. I couldn't help it, it was a beautiful sunny day. Here are more photos of the historic Moana Surfrider Hotel. I'd like to stay there one day so we can lounge on the lanai and play more tourist.

When you exit the lobby and head out towards the beach at the back of the hotel, there is this grand banyan tree with umbrellas and tables where guests lounge and beach watch. The banyan tree is probably very very old and such a beautiful centerpiece for the hotel's backyard.
The lobby is wonderfully decorated. I love the mix of the old with the new. Very tastefully done.
The classic staircase in the main lobby.
The lanai out back looks so pretty overlooking the grand banyan and beach. It would be nice to have some brunch there.
You can see Diamond Head in the distance.


The lifeguards have a cool perch along the beach. I believe their towers are newly built.


You'll never find beaches this crowded on Kauai..haha.

I thought that this canoe was going to run over someone! There were so many people in the water and I believe all the passengers except the steersman at the back of the canoe were inexperienced. They got really close to the kids that were playing on the inside. Again, I'm so glad that Kauai's beaches aren't this crazy..haha.The sky was so gorgeous that day!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
