Honolulu, United States

The trip beings. Our plane leaves LAX at 9:45 but Barbara doesn't arrive until minutes before take-off. We arrive safely in Honolulu where we are met by Norm, Barbara's mother's boyfriend. He takes to the condominium where we are staying -- its called the Governor Cleghorn and, while not particularly nice, it is within two blocks of Waikiki Beach. So, after dropping off our bags, we head for the Beach for an hour.

Waikiki is a real trip -- thin, tanned bodies checking out all the other thin, tanned bodies. Definitely not my kind of place. Anyway, after an hour or so, we went back to the condo, showered and changed, and walked to the Waikiki Shell.

It was opening night for the season and Uncle Martin had a table reserved right up front. The evening started with wine and hobnobbing with the creme de la creme of Honolulu society. Then came a wonderful catered dinner, Hollywood Bowl style. The music was "big band" by the Del Courtney Orchestra. It was quite enjoyable -- a nice way to start the trip (although I might have drunk a bit too much wine). Uncle Martin drove us home and we made arrangements for dinner the following evening.
