First, I want to say thank you for all the birthday well wishes; they were truly appreciated.
We arrived in Honolulu early this morning, island time. Which means between 0700-0800 for the mortals who run ships and think that breakfast at 0800 is a reasonable thing.
So there I was sitting on the balcony before 0600 when the brain cells fired and I figured out that it would be really smart to grab the camera. Be warned, the algorithms produce by far more reds than are seen by the eye.
After heading to the Aloha Tower,
I walked around and looked at a bit of this and that
– The Hawaiian Military Memorial
and the location of the first missionaries (tours are docent lead only)
after that – it is just wander since most of the other places I wanted to see are closed due to our lovely, intractable elected officials who are representing who knows whom.
