On the way there, Deb and i stopped in the Bay Area for a visit with Jim and Ruthie. We got to tour the Scharffen Berger chocolate factory, yum.
We also went over the hill to visit a Wildlife Museum that was having an exhibit of Robert Lang's creature origami.
Once we got to Hawai'i, we stayed in a lovely little cabin in Ahualoa near my house, surrounded by pasture with very friendly horses. It was a year later we learned that Deb is profoundly allergic to horses..
I took Deb to many of the lovely places that one takes a first-time visitor to the island...
