Pearl Harbor Saturday

Visiting this special memorial was worth the early wake up have to get there early because they limit the daily number of visitors.

After first watching the historical video, we were ferried over to that famous white building (on the far L in the first photo) built over the sunken US Arizona. A number of the 1,100 men who died on it are still inside the ship. It was quite a moving experience. The talkative visitors were shushed by the officer on duty. I gave him a smile and a thumbs up for reminding these foreigners that this was a place that deserved a quiet respect. Soo many lives lost that day...about 2,400. We need to remember our history.

Last night, MM and I walked over to a buffet we needed tons of food!...that also had a Polynesian show. After being on a cruise ship, well...there is no comparison for the quality of either the food or show, but they were both decent...and we enjoyed it.

Earlier we walked the block over to Waikiki Beach and watched the people and watercraft. The area is beautiful and a hustle bustle of activity. There is something to do for folks of all ages. And the weather has been sunny, hot, windy and beautiful!

What shall we do Sunday? We will wing it. No tours getting up at 0 dark thirty. Yes! It won't be dull. We are in Hawaii! It will be good, even if we just sit at the beach (in the shade) and enjoy our surroundings.

Life is a beach, y'all!

It's a shame he had to tell them to shush... Where did they think they were? Disney World?

Enjoy you relaxed, lei'd back beach day. (did you see what I did there? haha!) Waikiki Beach? Why not?!

They wouldn't be quiet? Shame on them. They apparently don't have any manners. Bless their hearts. It was very quiet when we went. Very powerful place to visit.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Relaxing day Sounds like a plan to me! And yes, silence is golden there, as well as proper reverence.
