I saw on news today that it's snowing back east. So what better day then to show pictures of my vacation in Hawaii. Lately this little California primitive rug hooker, quilter, gardener and Nana instead of being a garden chair traveler had her very own adventures. In late September my daughter and son in law were in Europe and I was delegated babysitter for my five year old grandson for more then two weeks.I missed my hubby my home and all my little animals. Then I was back home for a week and then off to Hawaii for eight days.It was a little too busy a time for me. Oh there was also RV camping at least
once a month in between that.
I was also finishing my quilt projects.I am so close to completing my rug hooking! The deadline is December first.Maybe giving myself a date will inspire me.

Inside the Aulani
I especially loved the country feel of the North Shore when we went on a drive to the northern side of the Island. I even saw a wild chicken I felt like I was at home.
One of my favorite places was the Kualoa Nature Reserve. Because Aulani is located in the drier part of Oahu it reminded me alot of parts of San Diego. But once we went to the Kualoa Ranch I felt like this is the real Hawaii. At the Ranch they have filmed quite a few movies such as Hawaii five O, Jurassic Park,Godzilla,Wind talkers, Lost and many more. They limited what we could take pictures of at Kualoa Ranch because they're setting up for two movies. I can't say what they are but you will like them. My husband experienced Pearl Harbor which is what he really wanted to see.I will show those pictures at another time.
