Day 358; Hawaiian Pinks

We had lunch at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel today. It’s all about pink there; it’s known as the Pink Palace of the Pacific

The Royal Hawaiian, much like the Moana Surfrider, is an icon of Hawaii’s old beauty, opening in 1927.

The colors of Hawaii are incredibly rich and vibrant.

      Thanks Eddie. Color is a pretty subjective thing when it comes to photography and art. Glad you like the photos and my site; I really appreciate your visit and stopping in to comment.

    You lucky girl you 🙂 Love the pinks, although the palace looks like it is straight out of a movie set in this setting!

  6. Ah, Angeline … one can get away with pink walls, can’t one, when the sky is so vivid it sizzles! Fantastic shots of those stucco walls, all planes and shadows and silhouettes – love those especially.
    I remember walking through the hotel, thinking it looked more like a film set for the grand old days of West Coast glamour than a place I’d feel comfortable kicking back and traipsing sand through to my room! The Japanese tourists, on the other hand, seemed to get into the spirit of it and were having a grand time 🙂

      The bar/beach area feels like simplicity personified, but walk inside and it’s a bit uptight. For kickback enjoyment it’s the Moana Surfrider. Will you stop here on your way home?

      • No dear – I’m almost home if I keep going east! So glad you’re having such a slap up time 🙂

        I thought of that after I wrote that….wrong direction I told myself. We meet up with a lot of folk here on their way to Australia. There is just something about this place that casts a spell over me. Maybe it was something from a previous life.

      • It’s interesting, isn’t it? If you were to choose, you’d probability opt immediately for Latin America, as the centre of your emotional universe … for me it’s Italy – arguably the back canals of Venezia. Yet here i am, twenty years captive to an island in the Bay of Bengal, almost as far as you can go, culturally, from Italy – and you, you’re stuck on the quintessential Polynesian paradise, right bang in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!

        PS Don’t worry about the geography … 🙂

        I am so torn. I do opt for Latin America…and want to return there (I hope next year), but we do seem to come back to Hawaii over and over again. It’s the simple lifestyle we have when we’re here, I think. But, you’re right, the centre of my emotional universe is Mexico. And, you and your island life…..amazing how things work out 🙂

    Lunch at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel today, huh? Well, Angeline, all I can say is keep your chin up, be strong, and I am sure that things will get better for you.

    You did the place justice with the photos. Power colors. I enjoyed them.
