I went last week in Hawaii, visiting for the first time. My friend went with me, and has now been to every state.

Nice, the deck on the Missouri are teak.
Love the sunset and slopes. But they’re all good. What a wonderful trip! Happy Friday, peeps.
What building is that the front of? I think I used to see it in the opening credits for the Jack Lord Hawaii Five-O.
I am wondering if those are balloons on the building’s front, or something else.
We lived in Hawaii when I was little. Moved back to the mainland for first grade and have not been back since.

I think they’re floats rather than balloons.
What fun and please share which state you enjoyed the most.
I have a pic my old man took of the USS Missouri but it’s from a different angle. Taken from about 2,000′ feet up, the deck is crowded with all kinds of military luminaries. You can’t really make him out but Douglas MacArthur is there and so is Mamoru Shigemitsu.
Thanks, I’m not sure how I made it up Koko Head. I’m not in bad shape, but I had to take a couple of rests on the way up. My legs were sore for the next two days after that.
Kualoa – love the bird head on the skyline. It’s a real-life Magritte (Domain of Arnheim)
Wonderful pics, only been to Maui
