We took sort of a last minute trip to the North Shore of Oahu over Spring Break. From what I can tell from the weather reports it was a well timed escape from the Northwest. The trip grew from Veep's frustration with the last 2 long Winters here in Spokane. Though I love having snowy winters, I have to confess that swimming and a sunburn felt really good in March.

7 am, Sunday morning.
Wednesday evening. Nothing like a mango smoothie in a pineapple husk (our kids are officially spoiled).
I had never been there before and it was nice to add a new place on my map of "places I've visited."
A few observations:
If I go back to Oahu, I will definitely stay on the North Shore. The resorts near and in Honolulu aren't our style. And I'll make sure I rent a bike in Honolulu on the way from the airport because there aren't any places to rent them anywhere else on the island, and riding a bike would be very nice. Although if we go back we'll probably try another island.
Hawaii is great for warm weather and beaches and scenery. It is not great for food (except shave ice).
While sitting in the Honolulu airport waiting for the flight home, I was inspired to travel more. I don't know why, but I was. I'm trying to get two weeks in a row off this summer so Veep and I can go somewhere and actually use our passports.
There really are a lot of rainbows in Hawaii.
But not a lot of fancy houses. Of course when the temperature only varies between 65 and 80 degrees, you barely even need a house.
Now that we're back, I'm still recovering from the measly 3 hour time difference and suffering through a full week of work.
It was a good trip.
