Well, friendses, I am now in Hawaii and throughly enjoying it. Yesterday it was just walking around the shops and the night beach, completely deserted. Today it was beach in the morning (and yes, there will be slides) and now I am off for the whale watching tour. Later it will be more beach and the luau. Tomorrow - yet more beach (are you seeing a trend there?), an hourlong helicopter tour around the island, a visit to the palace and massage and facial. There are many things I am not getting a chance to do due to time limitations, but I think I am going to have a great time. More later.
