K-girl, I've always wondered where Hawaiians go on vacation. I mean, you already live in paradise, so...

Bucky, most folks in Hawaii will vacation either/or in Las Vegas
(they LOVE to gamble), or
DisneyLand. Although a few folks we know go to Alaska to go
Salmon Fishing. Never had such fantastic Salmon in my life!
One friend would invite us all over (a go 25 folks easy)
for a fresh fish dinner. We'd potluck the sides and he would
bust open his huge cooler full of just caught Salmon,
throw those babies on the grill and GRIND!

For we two, we would go once a year to our home in Arizona that
we rented out and make sure everything was hunky-dory and then
our second trip for the year would be back East to visit with
my husband's family. They are all clustered in the DC/Baltimore area.
Saw my first ever snow though of all place
in the middle of the desert in our backyard in Arizona

I had come back stateside and had a native Hawaiian come over to visit me in February. He had never been off Oahu. He certainly wasn't dressed for our weather. One morning it was snowing and he took his shirt and sandals off and ran outside. He started to do an Hawaiian dance and sing in his native language. Some neighbors heard and saw him and called the police. Needless to say, they were amused. They stayed to watch him for a few minutes. They left shaking their heads in disbelief. All of a sudden he realized it was cold outside and decided to come back inside.

The next day I took him out in the backyard and showed him how to make snowballs and a very small snowman. He wanted to know if he could take the snowman home. We had a snowball fight before we went back inside. He was just so enthralled with that snow. Two days later homesickness hit really hard and he headed back to Hawaii. Minus the snowman. By then it had all melted away.

TAT, those are strikingly beautiful! This is "home" to you, right? I especially love the landscape shot of the houses and buildings on the hillside. The colors of the houses are so cheerful.
