And so the saga ends...no pictures.
We got back into BWI at 6 yesterday evening uneventfully after leaving Kaui at 8 PM the night before. Donna got hasseled by the airport screeners twice while they just let me through...go figure.
Went down the see Haleakula today sitting peacefully in her slip. I was glad to see nothing had happened. It appears tghat Shawn and Jayne0 left her in good condition and never found the pinot noir.
I want to go back to Maui

Kaui, Napali Coast, saiuling on a 65 foot Catamaran
Today was a snorkel expedition to the North shore of Kauai called the Napili Coast region with 12 miles of 3500ft towering cliffs which drop right to the ocean. Movies such as Plant of the Apes, 7 Days and 7 nights etc were also filmed here. Only accesable by boat and the remmains of many ancient Hawaiian villages and petrogliffs remain .
Boat built by Southern Cross boatyards was amazing with downwind sails of 13 knots ( they play it safe for the tourists. Snorkeling was average...better on Maui, but we got quite a show by the leaping (20 corkscrewing Hawaiian spinner dolfins)
Tomorrow is our last full day and night on Kauai and we have a sunset dinner cruise on the same sailing catamaran planned to the same area. The water here is so nice.

Oahu- Pearl Harbor, Banzai Pipeline, and Wiakiki Beach
Yesterday we flew over to Ohau (20 minutes) and took a tour of Pearl Harbor and drove around the island all day. Not my favorite Hawaiian Island, but everyone should go to Pearl harbor if you visit Hawaii at some time.
We toured the grounds, saw the 60 minute I Max presentations and went out to the monument (sunken Arizona Battleship where 1700 were entomed as it sank in less than 15 minutes. It was soleomn to see, You could still smell diesel and burnt metal on the monument which is over the sunked remains which are quite visble in 20 feet of clear water. It was inconcievable to see how 150 ships...8 of them battleships were tied together in one place no bigger than an area of Annapolis Harbor and Back Creek combined. Noaircraft carroers were present. It almost adds to the theory that the Japanese were lured to attack these ships to get America into WWII. No idiot would have put that many flag lined ships together in one place.
The memorial was soloemn as I stated and you could almost feel the histpry of the spot on that fatefull day Dec 7, 1941. There were 4 veterns of the attack present recounting personal stories of that day.
The Battleship Missouri where Japan surrendered was nearby also. Can hurl a boxcar sized projectile 20 miles over the horizon.
We watched for 1 hour as the carrier Ronald reagan docked from a 6 month sea duty to the China Sea
After that we toured the island. Ate fresh garlic shrip on the NOrth Shore, visited Sunset beach and the Banzai Pipeline which only had a surf break of 2 ft...quiet. We then rode around the idsland and the surf break was 10 ft on Wakkiki, A Hawaiian version of South Beach.

That particular rock formation off of Molokai is supposed to look like their endangered green turtle we have snorkeled with (Hanu)
Jayne glad to hear you and Dan are safe and sound. Living on your boat the way you guys do a storm like Irene takes on added meaning
