Great place and time for whale watching! Humpback whales visit the waters around the Hawaiian Islands from November to May. And the month of March is a great time to see them up close. Whale watching tours are available via a boat tour or cruises. Did you know that whale watching is a large portion of the state’s economy! It contributes approximately $20 million in total revenue per year. When visiting Hawaii, the whales are a brilliant show of nature’s beauty. A must see, top of the list item! ❤️ Whale sweater from @talbotsofficial 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 #whalewatching #humpbackwhale #omaginsiders #hawaii #hawaiifive0 @ilikaihotel #oceanview #sunnyday #waikiki #waikikibeach #honolulu #honoluluhawaii @visit .hawaii

Wednesday Winks!! Have you ever gone back to a place where something very significant happened in your life? On my recent Hawaii trip I thought a lot about Pan Am and when I was a young 21 year old heading to Honolulu for flight attendant training. I was young, wide-eyed and anxious to see what the world had to offer a country girl from South Georgia. I had traveled around the Southeast a lot with my dad and for family vacations, but the world that I had only read about was now placed in my hands .... literally, by bidding each month to fly to destinations around the world. On my 2020 trip I thought about the young girl in 1979 arriving in Hawaii ready to make her mark on the world. I wondered what I would tell that young girl. What would I share with her to make her journey easier? Or should we know what our journey holds? Is life more about learning from the experiences that come our way? The joys, the trials, the happy, the sad .... all make us who we are. But, I could not shake the thought that there would be things I could tell my younger self. Not to change destiny, but to let her know she is great just as she is and to walk her journey with her head held high and ready to explore this wonderful world we all call home. To appreciate the moments because they create the memories. So here I am in Hawaii where I found a cool store selling Pan Am gear. Walking around the store brought back so many memories and started me thinking about my life of travel. And, that young girl who stepped onto a Pan Am 747 and was never the same. So, I ask you. If you could tell your 21 year old self something what would it be.? 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 #wednesdaywinks #winkwink #panam #panamworldairways #panamworldwide @panamcrew @panamfoundation #panamfoundation #flygirl #paa #omaginaiders #whatwouldoprahdo #wednesdaywinks ❤️

Beautiful scenery by the sea on the North Shore. Each year the Hawaiian island Oahu attracts more than six million visitors from around the world. And the island of Oahu is the most visited of the Hawaiian islands with the North Shore and Waikiki as two of the main attractions. 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 #northshore #northshoreoahu #laiepoint #laie #hawaii #beach #seashore #islandlife #travelblogger #travelover50 #travelover60 #omaginsiders

Paradise can be found in Hawaii. Several people have inquired about where my photos I posted during the week were taken. I’m happy to share. The home is @paradisepointestates also known as the Obama Winter Whitehouse in Kailua from 2008-2011. The home is spectacular and so relaxing. You can immediately see why it would be the choice of the Obama family for any winter getaways to the island. Just a few steps and you’re walking on the beach. But with such an inviting pool you may want to stay poolside. And the home was perfect for President Obama to get a little work done too. Take a stroll through the home with these photos and head over to the website www.paradisepointestates.com for more photos and more information on how your stay on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu can be a Winter Whitehouse experience. 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 @paradisepointestates #obamawhitehouse #sunrise #sunset #omaginsiders #vacation #paradisepointestates

Wednesday Winks. Today I had a chance to do one of my favorite things. Take an early morning walk along the sea shore. It’s a favorite for me because I see the start of each new day as a gift. In Geechee culture it is called Day Clean. A chance to write a new story, to create a new _____. You fill in your blank. Today I reflected on another aspect of having a chance to start anew, to have a day clean. I reflected on one of the messages from the Oprah 2020 Vision Tour. Oprah said to have a clear direction of where we want to go, we must know the why. There is a reason for the choices we make, the paths we follow and the things we say we will do on our new day. But do we stop to think of the why. Do we consider the reason it is important to us, to our vision, our path to take that next step. After my walk I reflected on getting my whys in order; to identify the why or the reason I want to, need to, have to, make the choices I make. It is my next step in identifying the best path for me. After all only I can determine that.... each day from start to finish. Do you know your why? 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 #wednesdaywinks #winkwink #dayclean #geechee #omaginsiders #why #youchoose #yourpath #trustyourpath #trustyourjourney #chooseyou

It’s Wednesday Winks. Back again. I’m excited to start my Wednesday Winks again. I’ve missed sharing our thoughts about the various things we experience on our journey called life. I must share that I am inspired to start the Wed. Winks again after attending Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour. I am so energized from the messages, the experience and I continue to refer back to some of the most powerful messages, all about intention. So.... I want to share them with you each week. With Valentines in a few days I want to ask, do you have a favorite love quote? There are so many that can inspire us to live life filled with people who show and give love, support and care. I’ll start my favorite is by Dr. Martin Luther King - “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. “. This resonates with me, especially when there can sometimes be easier to love only a little and forget to show love, empathy and understanding in our social realm. Hate carries so much negativity. Love is so much easier. I chose love ❤️ and for valentines Day, I wish you, all the love and happiness your hands and heart can hold. Let’s hear your thoughts. ❤️ 👇🏽 👇🏽 👇🏽 #wednesdaywinks #love #love
