Saturday March 1

Busy day for all of us. Five of us went to Pearl Harbor memorial. Sarah L had been to Pearl Harbor before and did not wish to relive the experience. She went snorkeling and continued her email correspondence with Ann Fielding, the snorkeling guide from Maui.

The five of us left early also and spent several hours touring the Pearl Harbor memorial. We purchased audio tapes to provide more background and visited the museums. Walking the grounds allowed us to read numerous outdoor displays and signs in addition to the audio tour information.

THe tour to the memorial begins with a 25 minute video. A boat ride out to the memorial follows with 20-30 minutes of time at the site. We all found the experience to be a moving one.

After lunch we toured Iolani Palace, the home of the Hawaiian monarchy in the last days of its reign and seat of government for a number of years afterwards. We had some time for napping and shopping before dinner.

Our last planned dinner together was at Duke’s where the food and companionship were excellent.
