The sun shines over our Hawai’i Carnival!

Morning sunlight peaks through the trees over Nu’uanu PaliGood morning and welcome to Chapter 36 of the Carnival of Aloha!  There is something to be said for vog — you may not be able to breathe all that comfortably but the color refractions off those air particles make for great pictures!  Just thought I would mention that.

I also need to mention that in recent months I have been a bit hard on sites that send in random links to blog carnivals for advertising purposes.  That hasn’t stopped them but I thought it might be more useful to let them slide if they provide useful information and if they represent something worthwhile, like education.

I am guessing that most of these submitters are students, although I don’t know that.  So, let’s get started and you can see what I mean.

Elizabeth Wright tells us all about how It’s the Most Wonderful Time of Year! The Top 25 Spring Break Hot Spots in the U.S posted at Education Degrees.  Obviously Hawaii is not all of those 25 Hot Spots but we did make two! Thanks, Elizabeth.

Our Internet educators do not stop there.  Here is another submission talking about facts that may or may not be so well known.

Tricia Adams shares a few Little Known Facts About Big Island posted at PhD Programs.  Now, for those of us familiar with some of these, and the State as a whole, we know that “Big Island” was probably not the best thing to put in the title.  Tricia’s article is about more than just the island of Hawaii — it includes a lot more of the State of Hawaii than just one island.

The next one is another one of our educational institutions but this one is a great link for travel aficionados!

Debbie Owen suggests that people Skip the Slopes: 20 Creative Staycation Ideas for Winter posted at Online Doctorate Degree, saying, “With rising gas prices, freezing snow storms, and a still tough economy, many families are trimming their vacation budgets in response. Instead of purchasing expensive airfare, lodgings, and more, many have opted to take their vacations closer to home.”  Debbie’s article may not be Hawaii-specific but it does include much of our attractions in the process.

Are these three ladies students?  I’m going to guess that, yes, they probably are so I’m letting it slide and sharing the links with everyone cause I think they’re at least mildly interesting.

Education is important and you’ve got to love what comes of it!

Biotunes shares Hiking the Alaka`i Swamp – Part 1 posted at Bioblog by Biotunes, saying, “This is an old post, but still seems appropriate.”  Going hiking on Kauai can’t possibly ever get old!  Cool blog.

The ecosystem is always something great to focus our education on.

Raising Islands always has well-educated, intelligent articles.  Most recently, Mr. TenBruggencate spoke of how the Humpback whale range extends into Papah?naumoku?kea.  The articles you find on this blog are probably not going to be found in too many other places and they are always educational.

We need education and parents know how important this is.  We also need good food to keep our brains functioning.  Our O’ahu Mom, Lisa helps us with this!

Lisa tells us all about Lanikai Juice in Kailua posted at Oahu Mom.  I have not been there but look forward to doing so!  Thank you, Lisa!

We can take our juice and go relax with Pua as we view and discuss our favorite beach photos!

Pua asks, Which Hawaiian Beach photo do you like best? posted over at Best Hawaii Vacation with Hawaii Vacation Blog, saying, “We invite everybody in our Hawaii blog ohana to vote for the Hawaii Beach photo they like best.” I like nature photos and the beaches give us some of the best.

That concludes this month’s chapter. Thank you, everyone, for sharing what’s on your mind, or your plate!  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.

    Much mahalo, Evelyn, for hosting another one of our Aloha Carnivals in Hawaii.

    Blake, I am happy that you enjoyed my Hawaii beach photos posts. It’s one of those posts which actually take quite some time to prepare and to publish.

    We bloggers are happy when the post is warmly welcome! Much mahalo.
