It has been about 3 years since I have been living back on Oahu and in the 96815 full time. As some of you reading this may know, transitioning to Hawaii is not the easiest process. Finding an affordable place to live, a decent job and just getting used to island life again can prove to be a bit challenging. It was those picturesque days spent at Diamond Head Beach that put my mind at ease and left me feeling that I was exactly where I was meant to be. Winding down the path from the lookout above to the sacred shores below, I am captivated by the beauty of Oahu's south shore. I can't help but to feel delighted by the pleasant scene of beach goers, surfers and dogs frolicking with ear to ear grins on the wide open coastline. Days like these have been the main source of inspiration for the creation of The 96815 and continually motivate me to share this unique piece of paradise with you. On this day, I packed a book and my camera, picked up a delicious breakfast bagel (add turkey bacon) from Bogart's on Monsarrat Ave and was on my way to the diamond flecked sand somewhere between the lookout and Cromwell's. I prefer to go it alone; spend some quality me time counting my blessings. An afternoon here and you will find a lot to be thankful for.
Diamond Head Days - good for the soul.
