What an adventure we are having! We left Yuma on Thursday morning with layovers in Phoenix and Los Angeles and arrived in Honolulu that evening about 6. The flights were blessedly uneventful, just a bit choppy on the takeoffs and landings. Robert and Shelly picked us up at the airport with beautiful leis for each of us.
The next morning bright and early (we left the house at 4:45), Robert had arranged for us to go with him and some friends deep sea fishing. Dramamine pills and patches were no match for the rough seas and not too far into the trip, we took turns hanging over the sides of the boat. We spent several hours unsuccessfully trolling the waters for the big guys, but only one nibble. After noon, though, any thought of seasickness quickly vanished when the fisherman yelled “Fish!” All hands on deck! Well, except for me. I was the only woman and I doubt I would have been much help cranking the reel.
It was all worthwhile when they brought in a 90 lb. marlin!
We called it an early night and slept like babies!
