Today Uber John picked up Sriracha, Pedro and Lori. Luggage loaded into the chevy blazer and then a ride downtown. There was some typical Monday morning traffic on the trip. Uber John dropped the group at the Boston Tea Party Museum on Congress Street Bridge. It is a floating museum in the middle of the bridge over the Fort Point Channel. We were able to join the 1030 tour. It was a very well done tour with the guides in the tour acting out in character the days leading up to, the tea party and the aftermath of the tea party. The tour was educational as well as entertaining. It was a windy day and one of the guides lost a hat into the channel. He remained in character despite the loss of the hat and ... read more

Kasie had brunch with Pam and John. She is flying out later today and they will be heading to the airport. Pete, Lori and Sriracha took the train to the North Station. The plan was to go to Salem for the day. The train rail was getting an upgrade, so had to take a bus from the North Station to Swampscott. Had to ask staff at the train for the directions to the bus, but it was on schedule for the day. There was another couple that was asking for the same instructions to get to Salem at the North Station. We arrived at Swampscott early so had to wait for the train there. We took the train from Swampscott to Salem and then once in Salem we found a nice place for lunch. We headed ... read more

Today we headed into Boston for some touring. We took the regular Uber (not Uber John) to the Anderson/Woburn Train Station. We had a short wait for the train. We had purchased our weekend pass on the mTicket app. As the train conductor came around Sarah’s phone froze and it was stuck. It was not even able to do a full shutdown. The conductor said he would come back to check the ticket later. Eventually during the train ride after a utube video Sarah got her phone reset. We arrived at North Station. We disembarked and headed to the subway station to purchase our CharlieCard. We bought the day pass that allows unlimited rides for the day. We took the train to downtown area and had some coffee and treats at a coffee shop. Pete, Sarah ... read more

The day started sunny and warm. We had breakfast at our hotel. Heidi Uber picked us at 9:15 and we headed to the Punchbowl. Despite the name sounding like a party place, it is a crater/bowl shaped land formation that is a large military cemetery and memorial. We arrived and there were very few cars. There was a ceremony going on and not long after we heard the gun salute and taps. We were on the other end of the cemetery. The cemetery drive was tree lined with Chinese Banyan trees. After lunch we headed to the Hickam Beach and Park. It was a relaxing day at the beach. The beach is just west of the airport and we watched the traffic at the airport. It was a mix of military and commercial planes. The beach ... read more

Another beautiful day in Hawaii. We had breakfast at the hotel. We walked around the Ali Wai Boat Harbor after breakfast. We looked at the fish we could see swimming next to the boats and piers. We also saw some eels. We walked past the area with the surfers getting ready to head out. We were picked up by Heidi Uber and the Hardy Boys. We drove to the Dole Plantation. We went on the Train ride through the pineapple fields and then did the pineapple maze. The shrubs were in the shape of a pineapple with more maze around it. We found all the hidden stations. We had pineapple ice cream and then headed to the north shore. We found a parking lot full of food trucks and had some lunch. Next we went across ... read more

A beautiful sunny island day today. Breakfast at the hotel club. Pedro really likes the purple doughnuts. Had the miso soup today with tofu and seaweed. Not a typical breakfast for those of us from the midwest. Big waves today and the number of surfers is crazy. Has to be 50 surfers off shore on the west end of Waikiki Beach. After breakfast we took a walk through Ala Moana Regional Park to Magic Island. Busy place with walkers and runners. Scuba lessons in the little lagoon by Magic island. There was a better view of the surfers. They were all congregating and waiting for the perfect waves. Saw some successful and some that need to perfect the skill. We had a tour scheduled with Pink Sails Whale Watching. It sets sail from yacht club right ... read more

Woke up to sunshine and warm weather. Breakfast at the club today included fried spam! Spam sushi was also available. Fresh fruits. Fresh pastries. We were joined by 2 little birds at the empty chair at our table. We took the real Uber today to go to Pearl Harbor. Arrived at about 9. Had to have bag rental for $7 for the camera case. NO BAGS at all and the camera case was considered a bag. We did not have ticket for the boat to the Arizona reserved ahead so we headed to the "stand by" line. We heard there is sometimes a long wait so we got there early. We were on the 9:15 boat to the USS Arizona Memorial. The boat was not full and after a short briefing about the Arizona we were ... read more
