Day 8





We began our day once again with a long walk. The winds were furious and it was drizzling but we walked about 4 miles until we found the perfect little beach. It is sandy, protected and very secluded. I think it might be fun to go back in the summer to snorkel. It was just gorgeous. They are making a film, called, "Soul Surfer" staring Dennis Quad, Helen Hunt and Carrie Underwood. They had the set up and were shooting mostly the unknowns but it was fun to see the sets and all the crew in action. It is a movie about the girl that had her arm bit off by a shark but still surfs. Think I will go see it when it comes out.

When then decided it was the perfect day to go to Waikiki. We found the most amazing road that took us high up into the mountain and had views of the city. Even with the cloud cover and drizzle it was beautiful.








There were hiking trails all over and it was like a wonderful, beautiful jungle. It was as pretty as any area in Hawaii and just minutes from Waikiki.
















We ended up at Punchbowl National Cemetery. As we walked around the monuments it was a very solemn experience. There were the names of 28,000 that were killed in World War II and Korea whose bodies were never recovered. It was a very patriotic feeling to recognize the sacrifice of so many. I was glad we stopped, it not something you often experience.



We went back to the hotel and it was sunny and bright. We were on the beach by 12:30 and stayed until 4:00. It was great. We almost got too much sun. Virgin Pina Coladas, reading, snorkeling, swimming, and of course a nap as well. Jim swam with a turtle so the trip was complete for him. We went to Haleiwa Joes for dinner again. It is so good.

Is this article about Casablanca 1876 by you? It’s so wonderful. Thanks to my friend’s recommendation, I could get to know such goodideas! It seems that you know this Casablanca 1586 very well! Do you have any interest in being a promoter of Casablanca 1631?
