OAHU OPERA WEEKEND: “MAGIC FLUTE” AND LOVELY BEACHES

MAGIC AND BEACHES HAWAIIAN-STYLE

Mozart’s opera “Magic Flute” was the main reason for our weekend trip to Oahu. And it was a fabulous experience (see “MAGIC FLUTE:” AN ASCENSION STORY WRITTEN OVER TWO CENTURIES AGO – http://wp.me/p1jFeo-1rn).

But before and after the opera we also had fun doing other things. Like walking and frolicking on Oahu’s beaches.

On Saturday, we spent the afternoon on Kailua beach on windward shore of Oahu. On Sunday morning, we did something similar on Waikiki beach in Honolulu.

Here are some photo memories we brought home from this delightful weekend…

Elizabeth is not much of a beach person. But this Sunday, she spent nearly an hour frolicking on Waikiki. Which is very unusual for her.

It reminded me of another day earlier this year when she did something similar at Castle Beach in Western Australia (see Feb 20, 2015 – FAREWELL: DAY OF BEAUTIFUL BEACHES).

Opera and Dinner at “Hy’s” – Sunday evening

After the opera, we went to dinner to our favorite restaurant – “Hy’s” – where we usually celebrate our anniversaries every year. This time, however, we went there “just because.” And had a great time as usual.
