Hawaiian Interlude

Sometimes you have to leave paradise to see what the rest of the world has to offer.  Last week Wayne and I ventured away from our float cabin home up the lake all the way across the Pacific Ocean for a Hawaiian vacation. Hawaii is a wonderful destination for many reasons.

Ours was to attend the USC vs. University of Hawaii football game. There was a pep rally at the Royal Hawaiian, a tailgate party with the USC Marching Band, and the game at Aloha Stadium. We had a great time, and a win by USC topped it off.

Afterwards we had plenty of time to enjoy the highlights of Waikiki including shopping, eating, beach going, eating, people watching, and did I mention eating? There are so many great restaurants. Our favourite was Chuck's Steak House in the Outrigger Hotel with fantastic views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach.

While it was a wonderful vacation, Wayne and I still love our little piece of paradise on Powell Lake the best. -- Margy
