We had another fun week sharing the sun, fun and food with Janice's parents – Jim and Nancy. We went to the Wet 'n Wild Water Park (twice), the Polynesian Cultural Centre, Pokai Bay learning to paddle Hawaiian outriggers, spent some 'script' ($) at Hawaii’s largest swap meet at the Aloha Bowl Sports Stadium, toured the Bishop Museum and took Aikido lessons as a family. 

We had to visit the doctor as James’s ears were bothering him to the point that the pain was too great to sleep.  We tried everything for about three weeks but could not resolve the problem.  I was dreading going but in the end it turned our well and was covered by our insurance.

How well do you know Oahu?

  1. Honolulu is the largest city in the world -- at least it has the longest borders. According to the state constitution any island (or islet) not named as belonging to a county belongs to Honolulu. This makes all islands within the Hawaiian Archipelago, that stretch to Midway Island (1,500 miles northwest of Hawaii) part of Honolulu. Honolulu is about 1,500 miles long or more distance than halfway across the 48 contiguous states. 

  2. Wai Golf Course is Hawaii's first municipal course. 

  3. Honolulu is the nation's 11th largest metropolitan area. 

  4. More than 100 world-renowned beaches ring Honolulu. 

  5. Iolani Palace is the only royal palace in the United States

  6. The world's largest wind generator is on the island of Oahu. The windmill has two blades 400 feet long on the top of a tower twenty stories high. 

  7. The island of Oahu draws more visitors than any other to Hawaii. One-third of the state's best surfing beaches are on Oahu.
