    Trip to Hawaii

    Thanks to a contest on KRTH, my wife and I took a trip to Hawaii last week. Here's some pics.
    First, underwater snorkeling photos.

    Great picture but the best part is that you know all the little fishies by name.

    Re: Trip to Hawaii

    Wailea

    First thing after landing we headed to Mama's Fish House. Where we had the best seafood I've ever eaten.
    Mama's


    View from our table


    The wonderful Mai Tais


    A coconut tree on the beach


    The view from our hotel room lanai. From which we could actually watch the whales


    Sunset from the lanai. I really think we have better sunsets here in Seal Beach, though.


    A nice picture of a rainbow


    Molokini and Kaho'olawe from the hotel


    A Zebra Dove


    Flowers






    Coastline in front of our room


    A Green Sea Turtle right off the beach


    Some of the many whales we saw from our room and the beach






    Hotel pools


    The Serenity Pool. Which gives the illusion of stretching out into the ocean


    Simply the best ice cream


    Lily Pond


    And, a trip back to Mama's. This time it's a Passion Fruit Colada.


    Della takes a hula lesson


    Mynah Bird


    Signs




    Another sunset


    In a while a trip to the winery on Haleakala

    Re: Trip to Hawaii

    On St. Patrick's Day we took a trip up the side of the Haleakala volcano to visit the Tedeschi Winery. Purveyors of pineapple wine.

    Sugar cane fields along the side of the road


    The view of Molokini and Kaho'olawe from well up the mountain


    We arrive at the winery


    And to the tasting room






    Some of the wines

    Pineapple


    Pineapple with Passion Fruit


    Sparkling Pineapple


    And, they have started growing grapes to make wine, also. This was a very nice Syrah


    Then a stroll through the grounds.

    The tasting room from up the hill a bit


    A picture of King Kamehameha they have up


    I loved this Green Jade Flower so much I may mail order some to plant at home


    The Old Jailhouse


    Statue


    And, a tree that was just full of Staghorn Ferns



    Next up Lahaina and the Luau
