merry christmas and the iolani palace part i

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Recently we visited Hawaii for a couple weeks. There were so many beautiful places to explore. Some of the top, top things on my radar were two Hawaii house tours. Unfortunately, parenthood comes with a learning curve. Oddly, it never occurred to me that children would not be allowed inside the house. I understand that this house is a part of Hawaii's heritage so we respect their wishes. However, with that in mind, I am only able to share a post with my original photos of the exterior but I don't think cameras are allowed inside anyway.

Across the street, the beautiful historic courthouse:

I'm going to work on a second post with the interior photos from around the web. Guess we'll have to make another trip back when our daughter is older! Until next time, Mele Kalikimaka!

Hello Ann, I'm glad to see these buildings looking in such good condition; previously I had only seen them in antique photographs and didn't know their current status. Too bad you couldn't enter--I would imagine that babies still in arms wouldn't pose a problem. As I see it, it's their loss.

I hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and a great 2014.

Even small children you can hold? thats ridiculous! These are really interesting and I've never seen them before. I don't know how I never thought of it but of course Hawaii has a rich tradition and great old houses too!
Hope you had a beautiful Christmas with your family!
