Summer Speeds Up at the Carnival of Aloha!

Welcome to Chapter 11 of the Carnival of Aloha! I “borrowed” a race car to take us around!

Race Car

We may obey the speed limit but, then again, we might not!  😉

With the ever-increasing cost of gas we’re going to have to save money where we can.

Ryan Suenaga joins us with Frugality in Practice: A Cultural Activity that’s Frugal posted at Uncommon Cents.  I never thought about it but I suppose you’re right, Ryan.  I know it’s addicting.  I’ve never been to one myself but I had friends who used to go again and again and again!  I do know that it’s one of the most colorful cultural activities.  I have three places within walking distance and I still haven’t been to one.  Shame on me!

Skeet tells us all about A visit to Waimanalo posted at skeet’s stuff.  This is another part of the island that I don’t get to very often.  The little shopping areas have their charm and Skeet also managed to find her way to a couple of very beautiful beaches!  Skeet is gifted in that area!

Cheryl tells us all about Hawaiian Lauhala Baskets Make Popular Gift Baskets posted at Hawaii Vacation Gifts Blog – Hawaiian Blog.  I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who has a love for these baskets!  Cheryl also tells us all about the process and the tree the provides the leaves to create these beauties.

Mel sent in a post about the King Kamehameha Celebration that’s posted at Mel’s Internet Universe Weblog, saying, “OK, it is not a perfect post, but has a lot of color.”  I think Mel is wrong.  I like this post and, as always, Mel’s photos are wonderful!

Angie is in charge of our food for this Carnival as she takes us Behind the scenes at Food Network Challenge: Part 1 posted at True Aloha.  Angie said, “I know the date for the re-airing will have passed by the time the next carnival rolls around but it might be fun for people to see what went on behind the scenes.”  I say that it’s never too late to share and it’s certainly never too late for food!  🙂

Andrew Cooper at A Darker View has moved from telescopes to diving gear!  Andrew tells us all about Mahukona Harbor where he says you can find some of the best diving in Hawaii.  That’s makes three diving bloggers now!  I’m keeping track.  🙂

Leslie Carbone shares a little about her visit to Downtown Honolulu posted at Leslie Carbone. Some things didn’t work out just right for Leslie but she got some great pictures in spite of it all.

Evelyn (me) just had to share this story posted right here at Homespun Honolulu. I had to return our transportation to the Car Show that Heightens Awareness. It was important to me and I can only hope that others have seen and heard the need felt by so many in the community.

That’s a wrap! I enjoyed the articles very much and thank all of you for your participation! Be sure to submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Aloha using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

    Hi Evelyn,
    Thanks for being married to doing the blog carnival in sickness and in health. Glad you are feeling better!

    That sounds like a great and fun way tot get around but I have a feeling a race car might burn more fuel than a Hummer. You could always go compact and get a Prius!

    Hey Skeet, glad you were able to join in the fun!

    HVG, I do love reading all of the posts and their comments — it’s like a blog-family event. 🙂

    Hey GoOahuCard! You’re funny! It’s cheaper to just ride the virtual model. 🙂 Thanks for the visit!
