The Carnival of Aloha Takes a Magical Hawaiian Safari!

Roadrunner -- a real oneWelcome to Chapter 3 of the Carnival of Aloha. Sorry for the delay but our Roadrunner got his feathers wet last night and I couldn’t stay awake waiting for him to dry off and start working again. Since he decided to go play in the rain, I think he will be our guide on the safari. Mahalo to the Animal Photo Album for letting this little guy grace us with his presence. We’re going hunting for all things beautiful, magical and fun!

L.P. “NEENZ” FALEAFINE will start us off with OUR ROARING WEEKEND, posted at INFINITY saying that the, “LION KING BROADWAY SHOW has roared into Honolulu in an awesome way. The show captivated our childrens’ attention the entire time as if it were the first. And, all of the adults in our party were covered in ‘chicken skin’ and tears welled up as if we were anticipating the birth of “Simba” the past nine months! It’s playing until December, and absolutely recommended for anyone looking for quality entertainment!”

With that said, I have to also say that there are not many things more magical than a safari done Disney style! I’m glad we got a post in on this, thanks you guys! I haven’t been to the show myself but I’ve heard nothing but positive comments about it! What a great way to start a safari!

Skeet brings us some secret beauty at Secret cove posted at skeet’s stuff. Man that looks familiar. I’m sure I know that place. Once again, however, I am yet to see the honu live and in person in their natural habitat. Don’t worry, I believe you!

kuanyin is joining us for the first time and she brings us some Reflections on Maui posted at Who’s Yo Mama. Kuanyin tells us all about falling in love with Maui.

Angie shares some of that beauty on Maui through her post about Kepaniwai Park’s Heritage Gardens posted at her blog, True Aloha. Angie calls this sight a “hidden treasure.” Secrets and treasures, this is good!

Cheryl brings a little bit more magic our way when she tells us to Move This 2 1/2-ton Stone, and Rule Hawaii posted at Hawaii Vacation Gifts Blog – Hawaiian Blog. Another great story about historic Hawaii and the days of old!

Lynn Vasquez is the first to bring the magic of Christmas to the Carnival of Aloha as she shares her giving nature with us in her post entitled, 3RD Annual MWH Christmas Slippah Wish Project!! posted at Auntie Pupule, saying, “It’s dat time of year again! Wishes do come TRUE!” Thanks for the magic Auntie!

scorpy01 takes us to get something in our stomachs with Banana Joe | Marisa’s Dandelion Patch posted at Marisa’s Dandelion Patch, saying, “I know there are many wonderful places to go on Kauai. My visits there just wouldn’t be complete without several stops at Banana Joe’s, though.” We can add this to our list of places to visit on Kauai! I think the country look of Banana Joe fits right into our Safari theme! 🙂

Lika takes a little bit of the magic to Vegas in Ms I-Wanna Hula posted at Lika’s Log. I had to laugh when I read what Lika wrote… “Blogging: Proving the Las Vegas commercial wrong; what happens in LasVegas, ends up someones blog.” I guess it doesn’t just stay in Vega after all! Well, we’re glad it ended up on “someone’s” blog so that it could come home to us!

October kind of flew by and I never did make it to Morgan’s Corner (long story that I’ll talk about at another time) but Pua covered some spooky stuff for us with the Best Halloween in Hawaii in Lahaina on Maui posted at Best Hawaii Vacation with Hawaii Vacation Blog.

Evelyn (me) just wants to Congratulate, Compliment and Correct an error while sharing the Warriors’ good standing while hoping that our darling Honolulu Star Bulletin will perhaps correct their spelling in their online stories? Then they can go cover the Heisman. Then they need to go cover Auntie Pupule’s Slippah Wish Project!

That concludes this chapter. A huge “Mahalo!” to everyone for making this another great Carnival!

    A great roundup of local posts again! Great job, my friend.

    I did a post about the carnival on my blog and don’t see a trackback here. Hmmm. That’s happened a lot lately. Wish I knew what’s broke so I could fix it!

    Hey Skeet, I’ve had that happen to me too recently but this one was waiting for me to approve it. I had others in the trash bin tagged as spam. I think we need to talk to that Roadrunner! LOL! Thank you and sorry I’m falling behind on things today!

  • 9 Evelyn // Nov 5, 2007 at 1:09 pm

    Saved you out of the spam basket, Pua! I have no problem getting to Kuanyin’s blog. Hmmm… If anyone else is having trouble, do let us know so we can be sure to let Kuanyin know!

    mahalo evelyn. i told kuanyin some time ago that i really cannot go in her blog because it causes me too many problems – 10x control/alt/delete does not even get me out of the ‘disaster loop’. i don’t have problems with other blogs at all. did not try firefox for her blog yet. i guess i am a little nervous now. would love to read her blog though. aloha, pua

    We all seem to have our quirks, or our computers do. 🙂 I am using Firefox, just because I like it better. But, I definitely think it’s worth the download!
