The rings have an affinity for the sand, for some strange reason.
In case whales, fish and sea turtles were not enough, our hotel on Maui also had black footed African penguins.

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.

The USS Arizona memorial. On the steps are the names of those who survived the Japanese attack, and later chose to be interred with their shipmates.
Bullet holes from the Japanese attack in a hangar on Ford Island that now houses the Pacific Aviation Museum.

Swimming with the dolphins was a pretty good way to start the day.
Look, I learned how to use a snorkel!
