Aloha from Hawaii

Hey everyone!! A quick "Aloha" from the pool =D I wanted to post a few pics of our trip so far. They are not cropped but I HAD to show you what I had.

Our hotel is absolutely GoRgEuS it is in Makaha on the west side of the island nestled in the valley. The flowers here fascinate me - they are soooo vibriant.

Here are a few pics from Pearl Harbor - it was a somber experience for me (us). I DO NOT promote war but I understand the necessary evil of it - it is so heartbreaking what people can do. *The audio tours are TOTALLY worth getting* These pics are from the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri battleship - most ships in the harbor are to back-in so they are able to leave port quickly but the USS Missouri faces the USS Arizona (a) to keep a vigil for her and (b) as a bookend USS Arizona was the start of WWII and the USS Missouri was where it ended. Yup I cried.

I have pics of a whale watching tour - Yes I went on a boat and almost lost my mind. Most of you might not know this but I HATE...HATE...HATE boats - I enjoy taking pictures of it but I DO NOT like being on one!! Bye for now ... wait .... Aloha for now.
