Beautiful but Cold

Hawaii is beautiful but cold. For some reason I thought it would be as hot here as in the Philippines, not so. As I type these lines I am about a three minute walk from the Waikiki beach. Danny had a little trouble going to sleep last night we he and I walked out to the ocean and got our feet wet. It is as beautiful here as people say. We will be here just for the day. We head for the airport around 7:00 this evening, and our flight to Houston leaves around 9:00.

While I miss my Filipino home very much, it is so good to be back on American soil. There is just something about being in your homeland, seeing the Stars and Stripes flying overhead. We will arrive at our final destination, BWI, around 3:00 Thursday afternoon. Until then, please continue to pray for safe and uneventful travels.

    Hey, Dave, I knew y'all were in Hawai‘i, even before I saw this post. I saw a hit on our blog from a Honolulu IP address. We stayed in Waikīkī at the Marriott resort. It was beautiful, but not cold, in June of 2006. Glad to here that your trip is going well so far. Stay safe and enjoy your time back "home."
