A Vacation, In Pictures

And they say Waikiki Beach is crowded. :)

Your blogger host at his favorite beachfront cafe'

A private pool with a view

Nope - still not crowded

Sunset from our dinner cruise

A better view of the sunset

Looking northeast toward Diamond Head

Watching the tide roll in

Santa at the mall - a somewhat-discordant note for those expecting the Christmas holiday to be cold

Our favorite beachfront cafe, just before the lunch crowd arrives

Santa at the beach, playing carols on his fiddle for the sun-bathers

Another view of Diamond Head

Who was that masked man.....well OK...slim feller with the dark glasses?

Wow you've really lost some serious weight.

ProudHillbilly said...

Wow. That beach looks far less busy than any I go to. Lifeguards?

Sandy said...

Rev. Paul,

You look fabulous in this picture, well relaxed and enjoying yourself.

I love this picture of the sunset, it's very calming.

Teresa said...

Looks wonderful and you are looking very good. :)

Rev. Paul said...

Why, that's the Lone ... er, Blogger. 40+ lbs; thank you!

PH, it gets a LOT busier at other times. But no lifeguards that I've ever seen.

Sandy, thank you. And beachfront activity comes to a halt every evening, as thousands of tourists stand around snapping pictures like crazy. But it was nice to shoot it out at sea, with no people standing between me and the ocean. :)

Thank you, Teresa; that's so nice of you to say. :)

UH, you missed the opportunity to have a moose photobomb Waikiki!

You should photoshop that and put it on your masthead!


Rev. Paul said...

You know, Guffaw, that's not a bad idea. Heh.

Mamma Bear said...

Oh my...from way up north to a tropical paradise. No need to say have a wonderful time!

Rev. Paul said...

It was a fantastic vacation, Mamma Bear - thanks!

PioneerPreppy said...

What? No Doctor scarf? And no local wild life bikini pics :(

Man the humanity.

Rev. Paul said...

Preppy, the bikini pic was posted a couple of days ago. :)

Cathy said...

Oh wow. Makes me homesick for a place I've only visited once.
And may I add: A handsome intelligent face that reveals a good heart within.

Rev. Paul said...

Aw shucks, ma'am. You'll turn my head ... :)

Teresa said...

Holy smokes... yes you need a moose photobomb... really LOL.

Rev. Paul said...

I'll have to see what I can, Teresa. Don't have Photoshop, but there are other ways.

Chickenmom said...

Lovely pics! Santa must have been sweating in his suit! Good photo of you with that Mona Lisa smile! Glad you and the family had a good time.

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, Chickenmom; it was a wonderful vacation.
