Today was the first mediocre day with the weather at Aulani. Light rain this morning and cloudy all day. The Pirate Princess is a bit miffed because she wants a deep tan before heading to New Jersey for school. Tonight we have dinner at Roy's and tomorrow a trip to Pearl Harbor.
Well, it doesn't look like too much ocean but it is lovely nonetheless. Roys for dinner after already doing Ama Ama? Wow!

I guess it is Hawaiian Fusion. Strong Asian influences. I had two appetizers the crab cakes and pork/shrimp pot stickers. The crab cakes had a mango sauce that was pretty spicy. Very good. The pot stickers were nothing to write home about.

DD also two appetizers, a Mango, cheese and olive platter and vegetarian sushi. The sushi had mushrooms, Asian vegetables and a spicy soy sauce. She really liked the sushi.

I don't eat fish and that was their big thing. They also had a couple of steaks but I had steak a couple of days ago. Overall I thought it was good, not memorable. Ama Ama was better. Probably because what I ordered.

Fine dinning and priced that way.

Spent the 4th at Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial. Humbling and moving thinking of that day. A couple of pics.







Thanks to all that have served. Hope everyone had a great Independence Day.

Awesome way to spend the 4th CJ...

Is that a hidden Mickey (or Minnie) behind Pirate Princess?

Yesterday was an interesting day. We did an all day ABD tour to the other side of the island. That is the windward or wet side of Oahu. And yes it was wet. Part of the trip was a 2 hour horseback riding trip around one of the valleys. DD loves riding and had a great time. I do not and walked funny after the ride. A couple of pics. It was beautiful.







Last full day here. Sad about it. A has her graduation present, a day at the spa. Don't know what I am going to do, but will find something.

Well, the smile on her face says it all, Dad. I say again, you are the BEST DAD EVER!!!

Look forward to your impressions of Disneyland/DCA. My DD said to tell you not to miss the lighting of Radiator Springs neon lights. We almost missed it when we went for the preview, couldn't figure why people were just standing in the street. We were sitting in some hidden area just taking in the atmosphere. Just as we got to our group standing in the middle of the street...magic! We'll be in Disneyland this weekend watching the All American College Band shows. Maybe we'll see you there.

Today was D-Day for scores for her International Baccalaureate program. SHE PASSED. Now she adds the IB diploma to her HS one. Best news is that she has earned college credit and that means less money I have to pay for school.

The view from your room looks awesome. And congratulations to your daughter! Now get back in the hot tub. I'm sure you need it after the horseback riding.
