The Hawaiian mission houses historical site

I visited for the first time the Hawaiian mission houses in downtown Honolulu.

This fascinating museum takes you back to the 19th century. These are original houses of the New England missionaries who settled in Hawaii. I have no photos of the interior because we are not allowed to photograph the interior. Daily life is recreated through artifacts and exhibits of life in Hawaii in the early 1800s.

This is my  black and white gallery of the exterior of the Mission houses:

Hawaiian sunrise

This was a beautiful way to start to my day while I was on Oah’u. I did a sunrise tour with Oahu photography tours.

I highly recommend this tour to any fellow photo fans who are Hawaii bound. You will spend a fun half-day or day in superb locations on Oahu. The guides are fun, helpful ( you will pick up a few tips) and professional.

Below is my favorite sunrise shot:

Wishing you lots of sunshine today!

I loved composing with the windows and the chunky door of the brewery.
