I'm a California aggie who raised dairy cattle and some sheep when I was younger in 4-H and FFA, which is how I chose my screen name, Calicow. I'm a graduate of CSU Stanislaus, where I got my B.A. degree in Agricultural Studies with an emphasis in Ag. Business/Economics.
I'm also a stuffed animal junkie, with a large collection of Beanie Babies and quite a few Beanie Buddies (mainly the cute doggies). The newest member of my menagerie of plush friends is an extremely cute little Holstein cow named Janice Happycow, whom I made at a local fair. *stardance *stardance
Here's Some of my Hawaii Pictures
-- posted on October 6, 2009
Now that I've got some time, here's some of the pics I took while we were in Hawaii:
This is a view of Waikiki from the tower we were in the first 3 days in town. We were also able to see Diamond Head pretty good from there too.
The Hilton Village was home to quite a few Koi ponds and...
Penguins and turtles.
Me and my uncle enjoying the first of several Happy Hours. :]
Isn't this a nice looking scene?
Anybody wanna buy a condo in Trump Tower? Just steps away from Waikiki (as well as Fort DeRussy - an Army Outpost)
Took this one while soaking up some sun on Waikiki Beach.
A Plumeria tree.
We went parasailing, but was kinda bummed that we didn't get no pics of us in the air :(
Along the trails at Diamond Head
At Sunset Beach on the North Shore
Some doggies enjoying themselves on the beach
At the luau
The USS Utah Memorial
Here's the Mighty Mo (USS Missouri). We also got to see the spot where the Declaration of Surrender was signed by the Japanese on the ship.
And here's the Arizona Memorial
This is the USS Bowfin. The Sailors who took us on our tour said that the Bowfin was made from scrap metal from the 7 December 1941 attack and was commissioned on 7 December 1942.
A pineapple plant at Dole Plantation.
I was completely bummed, I couldn't take the F1 car on display home. :cry:
And this was a view from our balcony of Hilton's new tower the Grand Waikikian.
These aren't all the pictures I took while we were in Honolulu, just a little sample of all the things we did. It was fun, but I don't know how soon I'd want to go back. Comment >>
