In Hawaii

Here we are in lovely Waikiki, getting ready to board a bus to the airport and go to the big island of Hawaii. So far, we have done lots of fun and touritsty things...walking on the beach, wading in the ocean, eating wonderful food, drinking mai-tais, visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center, and shopping. I found a fun fabric shop in downtown Honolulu, but it was kind of an adventure to get there. Jerry likes to do lots of "urban hiking", ie explore your environment on foot, walking through neighborhoods etc. Let's just say that I have not hiked so many hills since San Francisco...
Thank goodness for 45 sun block! After two days in the sun I am only slightly pink, and not burned to a crisp. So far, it has been a wonderful vacation!
On the Big Island, we plan to do some snorkeling and more exploring. I understand that where we are going is a bit less urban than Waikiki, which will be OK with me. This is not even peak season, and every place we go is crowded!

The neatest thing about the beaches here is that the water is so WARM. In San Diego, we have absolutely wonderful beaches, but let's just say the water is a little brisk! I am typing here on an internet machine in the lobby of our hotel (imagine!) that you feed money into. I can't figure out how to put up pictures or links by opening up multiple internet ports, and I don't think I can download any pictures here either. So, more to come in a few days......
