Wandering Around America One State at a Time – Hawaii

State 9:

Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!

I will be featuring the states alphabetically. Time to travel across the Pacific Ocean to

Hawaii

Aloha! Hawaii became the 50th state on August 21, 1959 and the capital is Honolulu on the island of Oahu.

Obviously we didn’t take the RV to Hawaii! We spent two weeks in paradise exploring Oahu and Kauai.

I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

  1. Shocking … you did not take the RV 😆 It is fascinating to see how pineapple grows, isn’t it. My family still gives me a hard time for insisting we drive the Hana Hwy on Maui. I thought it was fun and beautiful. Perhaps it was my driving … one hand on the steering wheel and the other on a camera!

    1. Yes, it was interesting to see how the pineapples grow. I never knew how many different kinds of pineapples there were until we visited the Dole Plantation. We didn’t get to see Maui. I can just picture you driving and taking pictures!

  2. Sigh. Hawaii has my heart. There is something about it that gives me a whole new layer of happiness. I can feel it just from looking at your photos. Must get back soon!

      1. We’ve had to fly more than we would like, but they were short, two hour flights. Actually, Bill is the one as I used to fly around the world, 24 hour long flights and more, for my job….Hawaii is a hop, skip and a jump! LOL

  3. I adored Hawaii! Went to Oahu and Big Island for two weeks in January…going back in 2018 to check out Maui. No doubt there’ll be a third trip for Kauai after seeing your photos 😃
