Let me first be clear that I do not miss LIVING in Hawaii!
One of my most popular blog articles that gets tons of hit even now almost two years later is “Hawaii…One Army Wife’s Thoughts On Why She Hates Living There”.
In it I discussed all the reasons I couldn’t stand living there and for me personally that still stands. Hawaii is not a place I would EVER want to live again.
That being said I was searching through my old Facebook pictures today and came across my R&R staycation Hawaii pictures. While stationed there hubby was deployed and when he came home on R&R we decided to do some of the local things in Waikiki and Honolulu.
Truth be told despite the bugs, the old housing , the smallness of the island , the lack of restaurants I liked and the fact that I got island fever…I miss the beauty of Hawaii.
I miss the days hubby was off from work but the kids still had school , so we would drop them off and head straight to the North Shore and go to our favorite coffee shop. I miss taking gorgeous pictures of the sun setting and I really miss the shrimp trucks!
I still am glad we got out of there when we did because seeing the movie “2012” didn’t quite encourage me to stay. But, but at the end of the day when I look at my pictures I can say that I am so grateful to have experienced one of the most prettiest places I have ever seen.
Have you ever missed a duty station that you originally couldn’t stand living at?
