Sunday was supposed to be my last day in Hawaii. To end things with a bang, 5 of us decided to go skydiving in the morning. We got up bright and early and headed to the North Shore to go to Kenny’s skydiving company of choice.
On July 5 we got to experience the magic of the Stairway to Heaven Trail. It was definitely a highlight of the trip for me.
On the 4th of July we returned to tour the Battleship Missouri since it has been closed the first time we tried. It seemed only fitting that we return on America’s birthday.
Our July 4 celebrations began on July 3 when we headed down to Honolulu to check out the fireworks. We opted to watch from the Sand Island Coast Guard Station where all the boats are tied up. Kenny was on duty so we ended up watching from an upper deck on his buoy tender, Kakui.
