2 Years in Hawaii

On this day, 2 years ago, after a very long day of travel, we arrived on this beautiful Island. We were greeted with rain, so our drive from the airport to base wasn't very scenic.
I have only left the Island once to go "home" to Colorado for a brief weekend to go to a wedding. The kids haven't left at all and obviously Hubby has left quiet a few times. We will be here for about another year, maybe more, maybe less. I am hoping to visit one or two of the other islands before we leave.

I still love it here! I'm not getting "cabin fever" as some do. I love the weather, the amazing mountains and of course the beautiful ocean! I only wish it wasn't so expensive to fly here so family could come visit.
This is by far our best duty station yet! Third times the charm!

  2. My husband has always said that a duty station is usually what you make of it (there are some he says are just awful no matter what). It sounds like you have make a good time of the tour in Hawaii.

  3. Lucky you! The best thing we ever did was get off that island! I know that living there you are either one way or the other, you either love it or hate it. I think it's a beautiful place to visit, I just would never want to be stationed there again. So glad to see that you are enjoying your time there! :)

  6. Sound amazing. When my hubby was in the Army I wanted to get stationed there, but since he had lived their for 8yrs when he was growing up, he didn't want to do it again.
