The 2nd Day of Christmas - Travel Version

Welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas - Travel Version. Today is the second day of Christmas. Yesterday we replaced the rather inconvenient partridge in a pear tree with a night at the Treehouse Treesort in Takilma, Oregon. An excellent trade if I do say so myself. Today we're dealing with "Two Turtle Doves". Great. More birds.

Do you know what Turtle Doves are? They're pretty much pigeons. Somehow I can't see myself presenting my wife with two pigeons for Christmas as a symbol of our undying love. I mean, if that's what she wanted, I'd make it happen, but I went down through her list and although there's a bit of an illegible scribble between "Tiffanys" and "Porsche", I don't think it says "pigeons". Failing clarification, we're going to have to do better, and I have a perfect gift for the second day of Christmas.

On the second day of Christmas, what you should get for me...

Two Nights at Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay North Shore Oahu Hotel

Yes, our first experience there wasn't necessarily the best thanks to the room, but now that I know where the not-so-secret beach is, I'd love to go back and spend a couple of days lounging by the ocean. Maybe I'd even try surfing this time, or possibly even a little scuba diving. It doesn't really matter though. Even if I did nothing but just sit back and watch the sunset, this would be a perfect second day of Christmas gift for me (umm...and my family...of course...)
