with our scheduled port at Nawiliwili cancelled due to high seas and strong winds creating unsafe conditions we stayed in port in Honolulu for our second overnite.. it was out on the town for some shopping with a stop at Costco thrown in… weather was not as nice as yesterday so not a beach day for us today..
arrived Oahu in Honolulu.. still overcast.. on a tour to the North Shore once again.. many stops along the way….stopped for photo-ops in a couple of beaches.. then on to a famous along the road shrimp-shack–Fumi’s– for a local’s lunch .. continued on to the North Shore stopping at Sunset beach and Turtle Bay and the Bonzai Pipeline.. all with 1-2’waves not like last time here.. our last stop was the Dole Pineapple Plantation store.. then back to the ship by 330pm.. a nice day despite the lack of sun.. day 2 in Honolulu tomorrow as we spend an overnite here
temps finally rising as we sail WSW toward Hilo, Hawaii on this our 3rd day of 5 days at sea.. cloudy early morning skies put a ‘kabosh’ on any hopes of a sunrise.. a couple of rain squalls in between periods of sun thruout the morning turned into a big positive photo-op with a Rainbow lasting longer than it normally would.. nice.. and yop I said ‘kabosh’
have to hold back on any posts.. internet NOT ‘playing nice’ with Blogs.. will update when possible.. my Facebook still working okay.. https://www.facebook.com/stakeout
after leaving San Diego last evening the seas that were calm the past few days are now .. wow big.. 18′ seas 35-40 mph north winds on our 5 days at sea as we sail toward Hawaii.. at the Pinnacle Grill for a nice dinner with Cruise Director Keri and ACD Ben who we have sailed with a number of times before.. they sure make for a nice couple… … great dinner with good friends..
