Hawaiian Fever, Part Three.

7.17.2009

The USS Arizona Memorial from the water On Monday we went to Pearl Harbor, and saw the Arizona Memorial. The Memorial was very touching, and the Museum was very interesting, but the whole facility was rather run down and a bit cramped. I'm glad to know that the whole facility is undergoing a major refurbishing as we speak.

In the afternoon, we went back to the beach. The husband tried boogie boarding, and some "water level" photography. I sat on the beach, read about America's race to the moon, and avoided a sunburn. It was very pleasant. In the evening, we took a taxi out to a Kona Pub; a pilgrimage of beer for the husband. He did manage to take some nice photos in the sweet sunset light at the dock near the brewpub. The husband tends to blog more than usual when we are on vacation, as he takes a lot of photos.

On Tuesday we flew to Kauai in the morning - 2 hours at the airports for a 30 minute flight. We picked up our rental car, and enjoyed the local delicacies - siamin and proper shave ice. We then checked into our awesome and kitchen-equipped condo unit, and did some grocery shopping for the week. There's nothing like the cost of flown-in dairy products to make a person sensitive to the local food lifestyle. In the evening, I read on the beach at our condo, and the husband took more photos.
