The second and third days in Oahu consisted of snorkeling and taking a tour of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu. At first snorkeling was kind of frightening, but as I swam around more I realized the beauty of the ocean and the reef we were at. The calm tide allowed everyone to enjoy the water, but after swallowing two lung fulls of salt water I was ready to leave.
While we were out and about I thought to keep an eye out for some cars as well. Compared to the other islands, Oahu has the highest amount of nice cars and people who are into the car culture in my opinion. So it was nice to see some modified cars while on the tour.
This year my family and I were surprised when we were selected to go on a trip of our choice provided by the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. They make it possible for families struggling with cancer to be able to go to the place of their dreams. Since my dad had never been to Pearl Harbor, we selected to visit Oahu for a couple of days. The beauty of Hawaii, and Oahu showed itself in the first day of being there. With no rains and warm temperatures, it was something only found in dreams. The staff of the resort we were staying at were the most welcoming people ever, greeting us with open arms and leis. Tears of joy were exchanged and our fun started.
Hawaii was definitely a time to remember, I loved every moment of being there. With warm weather and water there is no need for anything else.
Here’s an awesome t-shirt collab by Hellaflush and Fitted Hawaii. This tee is significant to me because Mark had personally asked Mike and I for our input on the final design on the shirt. I’m responsible for the placement of the logos and Mike is responsible for the splash of colors on the logo on the back giving it a Miami feel. I didn’t really think that Mark was going to go through with our design until one day, I saw a bin filled with the shirts. Little did I know that he put the design into production and that the tees were sold during Hellaflush Hawaii. I’m very humbled to know that someone like Mark actually values my input.

Only being in Hawaii for a couple days now has opened my eyes to the beauties around us. Grab a friend, stop, and look around at what we have. Some may be surprised to see what comes into their field of vision, but enjoy every second of it.
Since fellow CoolQid is in the land of cheese, wine, and right hand drive, I feel that it’s proper that I have traveled to the land of volcanoes, pineapples, and pig roasts. When flying into Hawaii I was greeted by the blackened land and blue waters. Since the weather in San Francisco was cool and overcast as usual I thought a sweater was the right attire, when stepping off the plane I was hit in the face with humidity and heat. But, it was nice to be off the plane after an all day trip, and excited to see everything on the island. Hope to be getting some good shots of the natural wonders around Hawaii over the next week.
