Day One-Hundred-Fourteen

I feel like we were gone for 20 hours today!

We packed up and stopped quickly at Wal-Mart before going down to Pearl Harbor. Of course, Jenny wanted to visit the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri. They have a new visitor center that was pretty cool. We had to wait for about 45 minutes for our tour, so we wandered around the place. Then it was off into the memorial:




The USS Arizona still leaks oil:





Afterwards, it was off to the USS Missouri. I really like going there, the historian in me gets a little excited. So does the explorer in me!

Then when we were done there, we hurried off to Waikiki for our catamaran ride. It was a high-speed tradewind sail off of Waikiki beach. So beautiful! It's one of mine and Brandon's favorite things to do downtown. When the ride was over, we went to dinner and had some awesome pizza followed by a walk down the "strip" of Waikiki. I bought some cute new shoes!

We were planning on staying until the Friday fireworks show, but then we realized we were both exhausted and needed to go home. So here we are!



Beautiful Hawaii. :D
