Lately I have been lazy and busy so keeping up with this blog. I one hundred percent going to up keep this blog. Me and Joe will work all weekend to make post.

Anyway I am sorry for not posting more I have been working on a project for the blog. I am so exicted to share it with you guys soon!!! And if you are planning a trip to Hawaii or just want to know go to places
While visiting the Islands of Hawaii, visit the Island of Hawaii also known as the Big Island. I like visiting this island. It's a 45 minute plane ride from Oahu. The whole island is fun with their own regions.
Kona is on the west side of the island and more of the tourist side of the island, It's warmer here than other sides of the Big Island there is a Costco, WalMart, Target and a few more mainland stores along with quite a few local stores. On Saturday and Wednesday the Kona Farmers Market in held at the corner of Alii Drive and Hualalai Road from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you head towards the north of the island, you will be visiting Waimea, where the weather is cooler and it's cowboy country. It's fun to visit and if your lucky we may see the Cherry Blossoms Celebration, Parker Ranch rodeo, a ukulele festival and so much more.
If you head south of the island, it's fun to visit South Point where the cliffs are high and if your brave you can jump into the ocean from these high cliffs...good luck! There's a cool bakery in Naalehu called Punaluu Bakery were you can watch them bake bread and in the shop you can buy fresh sandwiches, ice cream or a loaf or two of fresh smelling bread. I like the guava bread and we make french toast with the bread.
On the east side of the island it's my favorite place to visit. The town of Hilo. I have family that lives here. Recently we went to visit Akaka Fall and it was so beautiful. It's a very short walk to the falls. You have to pay $5 per car and it's worth it. If you are a Hawaii resident, you can go in free. Here are some pictures of what you will see at Akaka Falls.
I have a 4 year old cousin who loves to swim. She uses a float which most young children use while swimming in the pool or ocean. My great grandfather Joseph Kanalua Travis, Jr grew up on the Island of Hawaii in Keaukaha and the way they taught their children to swim was to throw them into the ocean. My grandma said that her grandma told her that she was so mad at great-great grandpa cause he just picked up "Junior" from the beach and threw him into the deep ocean. He was about 5 years old. She was yelling that my great grandpa was going to die, he was the oldest of 9 children. He struggled to come to the surface but was able to find the rocks to push himself up and out of the water. Great-grandma thought that she was going to have to plan a funeral. After that experience, my great grandpa loved the ocean and swimming.
Now days we don't throw the children into the water, though I think some still do it the old ways, but my cousin, Hoku is learning how to swim. She loves using her swimmy floats but needed to learn to not depend on the floats. She was enrolled in a swimming class at the local YMCA. These are some pictures of her learning to swim from her "auntie". In Hawaii, we call older ladies - "Auntie".
me and joelyn will be starting a section on the right side of the blog that will have location RECOMMENDATIONS (POSSIBLY a review too!) of the week. it will be updating every saturday. Thanks for the support!
Sorry for my absent to this blog. I will now start posting weekly again. I promise.
The weather here on Oahu is nice...usually. So a common mistake that tourist have about Hawaii is: The weather is always bright and shiny. Well it is kind of. But a usual weather is overcast, sunny and breezy where I live which is East Honolulu and Windward. Lucky right? But in the West leeward area it gets quite sunny. Like get me out of this heat kine weather. Besides that it rains occasionally. But the rain is refreshing but since of the location of Oahu on Earth the air gets so muggy and gross. Trust me. When this happens going to the movies is just right.
Okay! now temperature. The temperature is usually 68 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Not bad. That's all.

There is a place I like to go and do a morning walk, it's called Ala Moana Beach Park right outside of Waikiki. You can walk to this park if you are staying in a hotel in Waikiki. It is about 100 acres big with lots of sand and water. There is a outer reef that helps to keep part of the ocean good enough to swim or paddle board and in the early morning hours many like to do long distance swimming. It is nice to walk around Ala Moana Beach Park and see what people do early in the morning and it's cool to walk around an ocean. -Joe
