» Here's Some of my Hawaii Pictures
Mood: chill
Now that I've got some time, here's some of the pics I took while we were in Hawaii:


This is a view of Waikiki from the tower we were in the first 3 days in town. We were also able to see Diamond Head pretty good from there too.


The Hilton Village was home to quite a few Koi ponds and...


Penguins and turtles.


Me and my uncle enjoying the first of several Happy Hours.


Isn't this a nice looking scene?


Anybody wanna buy a condo in Trump Tower? Just steps away from Waikiki (as well as Fort DeRussy - an Army Outpost)


Took this one while soaking up some sun on Waikiki Beach.


A Plumeria tree.


We went parasailing, but was kinda bummed that we didn't get no pics of us in the air


Along the trails at Diamond Head


At Sunset Beach on the North Shore


Some doggies enjoying themselves on the beach


At the luau


The USS Utah Memorial


Here's the Mighty Mo (USS Missouri). We also got to see the spot where the Declaration of Surrender was signed by the Japanese on the ship.


And here's the Arizona Memorial


This is the USS Bowfin. The Sailors who took us on our tour said that the Bowfin was made from scrap metal from the 7 December 1941 attack and was commissioned on 7 December 1942.


A pineapple plant at Dole Plantation.


Oktoberfest...in Hawaii?!?!?


I was completely bummed, I couldn't take the F1 car on display home.


And this was a view from our balcony of Hilton's new tower the Grand Waikikian.

These aren't all the pictures I took while we were in Honolulu, just a little sample of all the things we did. It was fun, but I don't know how soon I'd want to go back.

Looks as if you took the full tour while there. That sunset is fantastic and the beaches look inviting. *Chris...come to Hawaii*

Glad you all had a blast!

Well, what can I say? My uncle Tony really enjoys his happy hours after we did our touristy activities.

I saw your photo of the USS Bowfin and had to comment. I just finished a book called "War Beneath The Waves", which is the story of the USS Billfish, a sister ship of the Bowfin. The 2 subs sailed on the same war patrol as part of an informal U.S. wolf pack and Bowfin figured prominently in the story of the Billfish.
