Diamond Head (June 4, 2007)

Today we started out at Hanauma Bay and we did some snorkeling. The snorkeling is supposed to be great, but I think that the park at our hotel on Big Island was just as good, if not better. We saw some really colorful fish. We dropped the snorkeling film off to be developed. Next we went to Diamond Head Park and hiked through the crater. It was a long and hot hike over very rough terrain. We made it though, and we even have the certificate to prove it. We had lunch at Wolfgang Puck's and then we showered and headed out again. I had my pearl inspected to make sure that the mounting was stable and we picked up our film. Some of our pictures are pretty good. Then we headed to Duke's Canoe Club for dinner. Duke was the original surfer, among other things (humanitarian, Olympian). Now we are relaxing on our lanai. We have a spectacular view of the ocean (our room is parallel to the beach). We just finished watching a 30 minute firework show, and we had front row seats from our lanai. The traffic is crazy. People were stopping along the road to watch the fireworks and plugging up the flow of traffic in the process.
