Huge puffy white clouds were floating in the sky. The Pacific ocean down below us was sparkling in the beautiful tropical sunshine. Large waves were breaking along the Oahu coastline and made for a picture perfect arrival in Oahu.
On the way home a week later, the scene repeated itself!
The plane lifted off the runway and quickly gained altitude as we were flying past Honolulu and Waikiki Beach. Moments later, I spotted Diamond Head, a volcanic cone thought to be about 150,000 years old. Absolutely spectacular! This is a Hawaii State Landmark, and popular place to hike with visitors on Oahu. It rises 762 feet into the Honolulu skyline and the crater’s diameter measures about 3520 feet. Some geologists believe, that the Diamond Head Volcano will erupt again some day!
The plane continued along this gorgeous coastline until finally the only things visible were the bright blue sky, the clouds and sunlight.
Having seen this part of Oahu from the air, makes me want to spend a few days there and explore these amazing natural sights! Next trip!! This time around, it was only a stop-over!
