Moon over the clouds

Didn't quite make to the top of Haleakala for sunrise, but it's still pretty cool. No more Christmases on top of volcanoes for us.

Very un-Hawaiian weather up there--40F and windy.

Last night on the beach, and the whales came to say good bye.

We may have also crashed the Weinstein family vacation.

Bullet holes from the Japanese attack in a hangar on Ford Island that now houses the Pacific Aviation Museum.

On the deck of the USS Bowfin, the "Pearl Harbor Avenger".
