When we first
arrived at our hotel in Honolulu on December 31, it was only a short
time before Betti and I were on Waikiki. We walked from our entry at the
Hilton all the way SE to the hotel where we stayed last time. That was
about a 2 mile walk - round trip. We needed the exercise after those
long and frustration filled flights
Bikinis first arrived here in 1953 and they are still the most popular
style - with the wearers and the onlookers. There is a great website
where several web cameras show live shots of this famous beach .

On the day before we flew to the Big Island we again returned to the
beach. There were several water surfers using a new fangled Para foil
kite that flew about 200 feet in the air and provided speed of what
looked like up to 40 mph, The lift also allowed the surfers to
somersault in the air and return to their board. Looked like great fun.
