Some of you know about my fifteen day Hawaii cruise, which turned out to be a cruise to Oahu and back (no Hilo, Kauai or Maui). We departed from San Francisco and sailed across the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately our ship ran into problems just as we arrived in Hawaii. There was a small fire in the engine room and one of our jet propulsion engines was damaged so we didn't have full speed. You may have heard about it on the News. I was on the Grand Princess the first part of December.
In Oahu we went to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. We also went to the Punchbowl, the National Cemetery. If you are interested check out my previous post.
Anyway, we didn't get to a beach and dip our toes into the Ocean. Here's a photo I took on the ship.
I call this one hitting the waves. What's really funny is I took this one before we had the engine problem. Oh the irony of it all!
