HAPPY PINK SATURDAY


I have some very fond memories of spending some vacation time at the "pink lady" hotel in Waikiki many years ago. It's real name was "The Royal Hawaiian Hotel". At that time they had these large books listing the properties amenities in the drawer of the desk and the folder was a large pink padded folder type of book and had stationary, postcards and other things of interest in it. Pink was their theme and the hotel was so pretty sitting there in the tropical sun with the beach out the door!

That hotel must have been wonderful. I remember seeing the pink flamingos in Florida...real ones and the plastic ones. :) And of course, we'd all love a pink caddy. Happy Pink Saturday!

I'd love to see that hotel. Is it still there? I think I remember seeing ads for it on magazines in the '60s and wishing I could go! How cool that you vacationed there as a kid - it must have been magical!

Have a great Pink Saturday!
