HAWAII

In May of 2002 we got the chance to go to
Maui and Kauai (and a little Lanai)

Activities galore...  see below

First the helicopter tour in Kauai.  Probably the most memorable event on the
most memorable Isle.  They're all beautiful, but Kauai is special. (CLICK TO ENLARGE)

Once on the ground in the Hughes 500, our guide prays for a waterfall to swim in... wow!

Then it was back to the air and past the Na Pali Coast and home to our Kiahuna Plantation condo for some rest.

 Got a little fishin' in too!
14 Mahi Mahi, 5 Wahoo, 1 Barracuda One Heck of a View! 

Kauai is a lush place, just check out some of the views!

We did a little snorkeling, had a barbeque and took a tour

And Long Ago We moved to Oahu just after Tamra graduated in '86.  
We should have just gone there on vacation instead :-)  
These pictures certainly show the outward beauty of Oahu.
