Saturday Snapshot (December 8, 2012) Hawaii Cruise Day 1

[This is very late for Saturday based on Central time but I am still on Saturday in Hawaii!]

Aloha blogging friends!
We made it to Hawaii a day late after the first leg of our trip on Thursday was grounded after an FAA inspection. We spent many hours sitting in Fort Walton airport until they could get us to Atlanta and then to LA. Although they gave us a hotel voucher we didn’t arrive there until after midnight (4am our home time). We didn’t get much sleep getting up two days in a row at 4:30am to make our connections on time.

But we were happy to get to Hawaii on Friday where we enjoyed an Airforce Ball on the historic Missouri with our son and daughter-in-law.  Here is a picture of Matt and Hui. Who would guess the baby is due 12/9?? I should have spent plane time on the net as I have had no time since arriving.

Matt and Hui dressed to attend the 1940's themed Airforce Ball.

This morning (Saturday 12/8) we had a few avian visitors getting their morning shower from our son’s sprinkler. I hope to get more pictures of the birds on their back porch when we return next week.

 This is a pretty little bird taken from our son's kitchen. 
Unfortunately it was through the door screen.

Late today we boarded the Pride of America (Norwegian Cruise Line) for a seven day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. [BTW- for those that may think we did back to back Alaska and Hawaii cruises, the pictures I was posting in November were from our August/September cruise. However it is rather neat that we are visiting these two off mainland states in the same year. :-)]
This my husband testing the bed in our cabin as I finish unpacking!

Tonight I had some difficulties getting online and I am told to expect the internet to be very slow.
I hope I will be able to upload some pictures and my book reviews for this coming week.
The next two days we will be in Maui doing a bit of site seeing. 

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.


  1. i hope it will be better after the start a bit difficult. Enjoy

    and thanks for the bird picture it's gorgeous^^

  2. I hope the rest of your travels go smoothly! Delays are so tiring. Thanks for sharing your photos. Happy cruising! :)

  3. That must have been incredibly frustrating to have your flight delayed so long. Nice that you made it for the ball though. The cruise sounds like a lot of fun!
