Ever taken a whale of a hike?

I crossed off another entry on my Hawaii Bucket List: I hiked up Diamond Head crater to the top!

My friends Linda and Julie accompanied me ascending the switch back dirt trail in the morning as the day became brighter and sunnier. We snapped photos, laughed and chatted all the way up. We enjoyed the new stairs, recently installed for comfort and safety, and the look-out spots appreciating the panoramic views.

Here’s the whale of the hike part! As we reached the top, we stopped to look out at the water, on the  Waikiki side, and we saw many whales spouting and rolling above the water and diving down. What a sight! I never tire of that!

I am reminded of the beauty and majesty of this island and God’s world. I am grateful and humbled by it all. I welcome new vistas,  friends and experiences.

How about you?

I love my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free, please), and laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERYDAY. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I love to share my FUN life.
