I had a nice relaxing evening in the Waikiki Yacht Club bar last night. Just gossiping and catching up with some other people’s perspective on the world. Then I retired to Truce and had a good night’s rest.
This morning I was up early out of habit and did a few small jobs around the boat. Then I did the laundry run. In the afternoon, I trekked up to West Marine for a couple of bit I need to do some maintenance. It was a long hot walk, I came back via the beach and had a little paddle to cool the feet off. The water is quite warm, almost warm enough for swimming I think.
The hustle and bustle of Honolulu is in contract to the other parts of Hawaii I have visited. The cars here are shiny, they have stretch limo’s and four lane highways. Then there are the police and ambulance sirens, all very noisy. I didn’t see this level of wealth and affluence on the other islands.
This evening there was a great firework display. Proper fireworks, big starbursts and loud bangs. Tomorrow I will check out the tourist information place and see what activities are on offer. I will wait for my daughter Jessica and my friend Richard to arrive next week before doing the tourist stuff.
In the meantime, I will chill out and write a log when anything interesting happens. The next big event could be on Sunday when the first of the Transpac boats could arrive. It’s a big trimaran and was doing thirty knots earlier today – insane speed, can’t be very comfortable.
