This was an amazing day, all thanks to our tour guide John. He was ready for us when we arrived and had the morning planned down to the minute. Visiting the Arizona Memorial with my 87 year old Mom she was 11 at when it happened was quite moving. After a fun hot dog and nachos lunch we hooked up with John to continue our day.
We had decided to skip the battleships too difficult for Mom to navigate and joined John and others for a tour of Oahu. We saw all the main sites downtown, the PunchBowl, and then headed to the North Shore. We stopped at a cute Macadamia nut outlet and souvenir shop. Once we got to the waves, John explained how the surfing competitions worked, which was fascinating. Then we stopped at the Dole Plantation for some delicious pineapple soft serve ice cream, and a bit more shopping. A delightful day.
