Al - I recognize that board that Nords daughter had - I used it! Great pics - yup gotta love the umbrella drinks. Looks like you made yourself 'earn' them like we did - earned with fund activities of course!

Thanks for posting the great pictures, Al. Looks like you had a fantastic time. Makes me want to return also. My girlfriend is going in 04/08 and wanted me to go back with her again, but I want to go with my DH next time, so I am waiting.

I so regret not getting my free lesson with Nords. Nords, it looks like your daughter has grown taller and she is very lovely.

Looks like you had a great time, Al!

That was one heck of a coral cut. Don't know if you have had one before, but they sometimes take a while to heal. Oh well. Souvenirs come in a lot of varieties. If it takes a long time to heal, then you can remember how much fun you had in Hawaii when you take care of it.

Thanks for the pictures. Brings back memories - lived in Mililani, Hawaii in my developmental years (1970s) - I still catch myself speaking Pidgeon Englsih thirty years later.

Plan it to return again using Space A travel to Hickam AFB soon after retiring.

It looks a lot worse than it was. I didn't even know it was bleeding until after we took the picture. The coral there is dead coral, so there doesn't seem to be any infection.

Glad to hear that! It did look pretty nasty in the photos so I'm glad to hear that it is not that bad, and not infected. I still have scars from a bad coral cut that I got in my youth.

Really enjoyed the photos.

Someone sent me a PM asking what I used to make the album. The answer: Microsoft Frontpage.

I started doing it with Blogspot, but that would have meant uploading the photos a few at a time. Frontpage was easier.

Reminds me of our trip to Hawaii in Feb. The first restaurant upstairs we also had a drink there one night. Last trip we stayed at Resort Quest with an ocean front room, however we found the room a tad too small. This time we stayed at the Hyatt Regency, only slightly more expensive, but with a mountain view and a bigger room.

Good tip about some of the restaurants you went to. I will add them to our list for next time.

Aside from the gas station by the golf course, you wouldn't recognize the place. Over 14,000 homes, H-2 from Wahiawa to Pearl Harbor, four lanes on Kam Hwy, a high school, a middle school, six feeder elementary schools, a huge shopping center, a multicineplex...

Last time I was in Hawaii was during Army ROTC training at Tripler Medical Center in 1989. During that summer, was able to visit my old stomping grounds in Mililani. My older brother was in the first year that Mililani High School was in existence, while I attended Kipapa Elementary School and Wheeler AFB Intermediate School. Kamehemehe Highway was the main thoroughfare back then. No H1, H2 back then. Father flew Army helicopters out of Wheeler AFB for a lot of years. Discovered that one of my childhood friends was coaching the Mililani Trojans football team. Talk about the years flying by.

My father had the chance to buy the 3 bedroom house that we rented for about $60k. He didn't. I wouldn't be surprised if that same house would sell for $300-400k nowadays. Clearly remember as a child seeing sunlight shine through the walls in that flimsy Hawaiian home.

Would love to retire in Hawaii, but too many aging relatives in FLA that will need assistance in the next decade or two.

Al, great pictures, thanks for sharing.

I haven't been around here much lately but weren't you musing on increasing your spending a bit? I have a suggestion, maybe upgrading your choice of beer from Natural Light might be a start?
