Hawaii | North Shore, Oahu


Not too long ago I ventured out with a few friends to the north shore of our island. We arrived just after the rain. It was a mellow day and made me feel like I was back on Kauai.

We stopped to get some really ono (delicious) acai at Haleiwa Bowls.

Right across the street was Matsumoto Shave Ice with a line wrapping around their building.

 I can't wait to head north again. Maybe we'll take on the wait at Matsumoto's. I know I'd love to get a photo of their popular shave ice. Have you been to Oahu's north shore and Matsumoto's?



  1. With a line like that, their ice must be super delicious!

  2. oahu! i'm so jealous :)
    what is acai exactly? looks yummy

    p.d: pretty logo!

  3. Aloha Merissa, I just came across your blog via Pinterest. ...I too, love to do mail art! (It's how I came across your blog.) I just started this whole crazy blogging thing...I have lots to learn....I hope that I can one day figure out how to make mine as beautiful as yours. I'm originally from Ewa Beach, Hawaii...made a military move 7 years ago to North California. It's so nice to gawk at your pictures...makes me miss home. Anyhoot, I just wanted to say hello and pass along kudos to your blog. Take care, Melissa :)


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

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
