“Aloha” from Hawaii! One of my 2012 goals was to work remotely [ie. not in Portland] for 1+ month. After two months of anticipation of ditching Portland for warmer weather, we have arrived on Oahu. I must say, it feels great to finally make this goal a reality.

So here’s a little peak at my first five days of working and playing in paradise via Instagram.


First stop: the beach!


Day 2: Stopping by the Camille’s on Wheels food truck in Kailua for Ahi tacos.


Evening hike to the pillboxes in Lanikai. More like a “hike” compared to more recent treks.


Graffiti on the Lanikai bunkers


and back down to the lovely Lanikai beach


a house I could afford on Lanikai beach :)


Heading to the North Shore.


Aloha


stopping at Malaekahana State Recreation Area on the way to the North Shore.


apparently it was an uncharacteristically calm day at Shark’s Cove for winter snorkeling. We’ll take it!


Post-snorkel treat at Matsumoto’s Shave Ice


Onward to Kaena Point for hiking, albatross spotting, and monk seal viewing.


Olomana 1 Summit hike – gorgeous trail


View of Olomana Peak 3 from the 1st summit


First night visiting Honolulu (“town” as the locals call it) for post-hike burgers at Burgers on the Edge and strolling along Waikiki beach front.

Are you on Instagram? I’m poweredbytofu, if we’re not already following each other. Aloha!
