I’ll Return

By C. LaRene Hall

I’m still away, but I’ll be back soon. This week I’m at Pearl Harbor and then I’m off to the famous swap meet at the football stadium. I guess they expect us to shop until we drop. If you know me though, you know I hate to shop. The tour guide told us this is the best place to buy souvenirs so maybe I’ll look around and take something home to all the grandchildren.

Yesterday we were at the Polynesian Cultural center so I’m sure I’ll be too tired to do much walking today. I’ve written many notes about the things I’ve seen, the people I’ve met, and I’ve taken many pictures. No matter how busy I am, though, I have to write something. Before I left, I had plenty of ideas floating around in my head.

I hope no one asks what my favorite place was. I plan to visit something spectacular every day. With tours to Waimea Canyon , Volcano National Park , Rainbow Falls , and Haleakala Crater at sunrise, how can I not have a fantastic trip?

Connie,
Hope you're having fun. We'll be glad when you're back, and are looking forward to hearing all about Hawaii!

Ah, yes. The sacred pilgrimage to the Aloha Swap Meet.

I have to admit, though - the last time I went to the swap meet, I didn't find any of the things I was looking for.

It's probably sacrilege to even admit this, but I later found everything I wanted at the Mililani Wal-Mart.

Hopefully you'll have better luck.
