Sailboats on Kailua Beach


Kailua has two world class beaches, but we don't want to do a beach blog only. From time to time we will---go beach---and show you our two top ten beaches in the world. On any morning between seven and ten you can take one of the North Kalaheo Street access paths to the beach and be virtually alone for two to three miles!

Downtown Kailua


If you stand in the very center of downtown Kailua----which is probably the small city park----and walk two blocks north, south, east and west you will have seen most all of downtown.

PHOTO ESSAY: Lost in paradise...

Did you ever try to find a business on King Street in Honolulu on a rainy day? Below is a photo essay about that adventure.

Going up the mountain from Kailua to Honolulu

Going thru the Pali highway tunnel

Do we turn left or right?

It is starting to rain

Honolulu in the distance

Maybe the sun will come back out

Lots of traffic now

More traffic

Cars everywhere!

I think it is over there

Keep going...

It's on a street corner?

Maybe we drove past it...

I give up

We can try again

When we have more time.
