Our first full day in Hawaii was spent touring Oahu. So after traveling from 9am to what would have been 9:30pm CST, we got up at 4:30am local time for a 6:15 tour.
Our tour lasted approximately 12 hours.
We saw Pearl Harbor, Dole Plantation, some temple, a Macadamia nut store, some spectacular scenery and some other stuff I can’t remember right now.
But the highlight of my trip so far came when we were at the top of the mountain at some lookout point and I got to see the actual island where they filmed Gilligan’s Island and sing with my sister and mother (my SIL is too young to remember the show), “The ship set sail on the shore of this uncharted desert isle, with Gilligan, the Skipper too, the Millionaire and his wife, the Movie Star! The Professor and Mary Ann HERE ON GILLIGAN’S ISLE!”
To say I was a fan would be an understatement.
And to say I am completely exhausted would be an even bigger understatement.
Which is why I’m going to post a few pictures and call it a night. Good-night all. And since the only Hawaiian I can remember right now is that Pu Pu means cows, i will not try to say good-night in Hawaiian.
It would probably just end up being some version of the word “Aloha” anyway.
Britany, Don’t know if Brad ever sang you any Christmas songs we learned the Christmas we were in Hawaii. Now is you change to learn some and teach your sons ‘another language.’ It was amazing to us all the Christmas music in the native tongue sung in Hawaii.
