Pearl Harbor and Rainbows

A little more from our trip to Hawai’i, even though we are back in Pittsburgh.

Getting to Pearl Harbor early was a key to having a good time there.  It rains often, in Hawai’i, if only for a minute, but the weather moves quickly… First up, a rainbow.  We saw so many rainbows here!

Taking the ferry to the USS Arizona memorial.

The memorial.

The battleship is still below the monument.

And still leaks 1-2 quarts of oil per day into the harbor.

A crew member from the USS Arizona had recently passed.  On this day, he was going to be interred among his shipmates.  His name is under the black tape.

Ryan and I took a little drive north to go to a few beaches (and snorkel unsuccessfully).  Another rainbow on the drive home….almost a double rainbow if you can see it on the left. 

Sunset at the harbor near Waikiki.

Tomorrow, the final blog post from Hawai’i………Snorkeling!!!!

    Wow, Randi, that is so neat…I would like to visit Pearl Harbor one day. The rainbows remind me of Iceland…really beautiful. I love that last sunset photo.

    The blue sky in the third photo is unreal, and I love the contrast between it and the white of the memorial. The 9th photo is my favorite. I love the symmetry and the lines leading up to the memorial.
