DAY 1 - This is Valerie and my first time stepping on the sands of Waikiki
Our room at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa
It's nice, but it's no Ritz
We have a lovely view of the parking lot
That said, the beach is just across the street
Valerie and I walk along the sand and then down Kalakaua Ave
We're surprised by the amount of traffic...
...and by the range of cars we find here...
...like this rare Integra Type R
Is that what I think it is?
The Sheraton looks like a nice hotel
Several statues overlook Kalakaua Ave

Another Waikiki panorama (Photomerge
The late afternoon sun filters through clouds
We return to the Marriott before meeting Pete and Lori for dinner (at the Yummy's in the Ala Moana Mall)
DAY 2 - I've wanted to visit Pearl Harbor since I was a kid...
...which means visiting the Arizona Memorial
First stop, the USS Arizona Museum
Recovered artifacts from the sunken battleship
Here's an actual Japanese torpedo from Dec 7,
