It’s time for Aloha

I’ve been a bit busy dealing with family issues but I’m back in Honolulu trying to find somewhere to live which turns out to be a real challenge. Still, when I look at the snow and cold in some parts of the US, the weather here is a bonus. It’s been a bit chilly, that means in the low 60′s at night, but around 80 during the day and a bit of rain but not much. There’s heaps going on here–Pearl Harbor Day, as you can imagine, is a big event, the island was full of people here for the ceremonies. This now also includes survivors who have died and wish to have their ashes buried with the victims of the Arizona and the other battleships so Navy divers take them down and do that. That evening there was a parade through Waikiki with the survivors at the head of the parade followed by servicemen and women and the usual marching bands, flag twirlers, etc.Now we’re gearing up for the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday which will go past Waikiki so things will be a bit crowded tomorrow. All going well, I do plan to get out on the board tomorrow, if I can get past the marathon viewing crowds. Even if it rains, well, I’ll be wet anyway. So it’s back to the beach for me–see you there!
