I didn't want to hi-grade CI's thread ...

We had a marvellous holiday... We drove across the BI from Hilo to Kona, up to Hapuna Beach to body surf, climbed Diamond Head Crater, went to a luau where my son was the last on stage to dance the hula (very funny), shopped till we dropped, ate and ate and ate, went on a sunset dinner cruise, saw dolphins and whales, visited Akaka Falls, watched some surfers and hang-gliders in the southeast part of Oahu, drove around Honolulu, and walked Waikiki Beach. We tried to get some golf in but there wasn't any time left - the 9 days went fast!

My son, Joel:

Yeah, I hear ya! I'm heading to Smithers next week - I bought a down coat and -32 deg boots before I left ... But I bought a Hawaiian apron so I can remember the warm breezes Smile

My daughter is on Oahu right now. Lucky her.

Tell your sister she's hot. Not to mention the poster...

Looks like you had fun!

Yes, it was fun, and lots of good times. Wish I could have hooked up with the others but maybe next time.

That CI sure gets around, doesn't he?
