Honolulu and into the Countryside of Oahu


Honolulu and Diamond Head

Honolulu and Diamond Head

Honolulu is famous for many things: Pearl Harbor, Honolulu Harbor, Aloha Tower, Diamond Head, and of course Waikiki Beach.  Aloha Tower is located on Pier 9 in Honolulu Harbor, and it was for some forty years the tallest structure in Hawaii.  What you may not know is that it was originally a lighthouse.

In the distance beyond Waikiki Beach is Diamond Head volcanic crater.

If you’d like to see the view from atop Diamond Head I would suggest you visit this link appropriately titled:  A View from Atop Diamond Head.  That link will take you to a post I did way back in February, 2011, of a hike Ursula and I made to the top.  In that post you’ll see images such as these:

One of the most prominent skyline features in Honolulu is actually two skyline features.  I’m referring to One Waterfront Towers:

On Fun Photo Friday I’ll present some of my favorite shots from this trip to Oahu, and next week we’ll begin our culinary tour of Oahu.
