Planned Seniorhood Visits Hawaii – Day 1-2 (Oahu)
“That peaceful land, that beautiful land, that far-off home of profound repose, and soft indolence, and dreamy solitude, where life is one long slumberous Sabbath, the climate one long delicious summer day, and the good that die experience no change, for they but fall asleep in one heaven and wake up in another.” Mark Twain on Hawaii
After years of accumulating frequent flier miles and with affordable accommodations made through RCI and Priceline bookings, my husband, my mother, and I headed off for the trip of our lifetime to visit the Hawaiian islands of Oahu and Kauai. On the eve of my mother’s 81st birthday, after a week of soaking up beauty amidst colors my descriptive palette cannot begin to specify, the three of us concluded our stay in paradise with a traditional, and might I add spectacular, Hawaiian luau. It was ten days none of us will ever forget.
