To show how absurd it is, Hawaii attempted to raise the age for smoking tobacco to 100. You can't reductio ad absurdum the left, because they've already gone there. Now they haven't actually done it, but that they would think about it and not fire everyone who suggested it, tells you all you need to know about their attitudes on freedom/tolerance. more...
2018 Hawaii (Oahu)
Family Thanksgiving (Nov) in Hawaii: family, friends, and a Jellyfish sting.
Local friend suggested this fantastic place: great food, good prices, absurd portions.
I got hit (lightly) by a box jellyfish: very painful for a few hours, irritating for a few days.
Another Hawai'i get-away, this time to the Big Island in March. We were in Kona (the Dry side), but did a drive around the Island (and saw the Lava and the Wet Side). With some hanging out at the pool or water with a Mai Thai.
When you to an airport without walls and open, you know you're in Hawaii.
We hadn't been snorkeling much, but really enjoyed it at Kahaluu Beach.
What big Island visit is complete without seeing a volcano?
