First Carnival of the Summer!

What do people do in the summer time?  We can go to the Carnival! We can follow this path to the Carnival.

Country road to the Carnival

Welcome to the first summer chapter of the Carnival of Aloha!  I am going to open this up with two apologies.  The first apology is to the blogosphere for not having a May Carnival.  The second apology is for our first carnival attraction who probably thinks I left him out on purpose.  No way!

I would never miss the chance to share one of Mr. Cooper’s posts!  It was an accident.  Since we’re exploring the great outdoors, we will start with what Mr. Cooper found.

Andrew Cooper found Ancient Messages that he posted about at A Darker View.  I have your other cool post too, Andrew, and I will share it next month!  Things just got a little out of sync for me.  Tsk!

We seem to be leaning towards the country this month so we need to be energetic to travel around.  Since we need some energy to travel around with our fellow bloggers, let’s get something to eat.

Malia Yoshioka takes us Drinking and Dining in Honolulu with the article posted over at WhyGo Hawaii.  Malia says, “When I travel, I like to get a few recommendations from locals for places to enjoy a cocktail or a nice meal. Here’s a few of my favorite places for Drinking and Dining in Honolulu.”  We love it when people share with us.  Thanks you, Malia!

Now that we have been fed, we can focus on the beauty of the islands, and their allure.
Sheila tells about The Allure of Lanai posted at Hawaii Vacation Blog –, saying, “While Hawaii feels like an exotic, far-away destination, Lanai feels even more so! We love all of Hawaii, but Lanai holds a special allure for us. This post explains a little of why Lanai continues to call us back.”  I like your Lanai posts, Sheila!

We just celebrated Kamehameha Day and I cannot think of a better time to talk about the resting place of our honored royalty.

Lisa helps us honor that royalty when she talks about The Royal Mausoleum that she posted about at Oahu Mom, saying, “The Royal Mausoleum is worth visiting. It’s a great place to honor and remember the Hawaiian Monarchy.”

You’re right, Lisa, it is a fascinating place to visit.  It is also very picturesque.  Maui is another great place to take picture and Kris is going to share some of Maui’s beauty.

Kris Nelson is providing a New eBook – Maui by Poster | Ka’anapali Dreamin’ posted at Ka’anapali Dreamin’>  He said, “I had a post from April that announced the release of a (free) Maui eBook I put together that I wonder if it would interest your readers.”  I guess we will find out!

That concludes this chapter. Submit your blog article to the next edition of Carnival of Aloha using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

    I’ve been trying to enter a blog on Carnival of Aloha and for the life of me I can never figure out what they want.

    I think I got some of it but then I won’t know until I enter my home page. Where in the world is my home page. I enter what I think is my home page and it tells me no. Sorry. That is why I never send a blog. I’m just getting to darned old for more technology.
