On the Monday after the wedding, a group of us went to Pearl Harbor for the afternoon. That proved to be a little challenging for those that drank a little too much the evening before (coughcoughCarlandZack).
Unfortunately, the Arizona Memorial is currently closed for repairs so we were not able to dock on the memorial but could only take the boat out near the memorial for a glimpse from the water.
We also checked out the USS Bowfin Submarine, which proved challenging with our two mobility impaired relatives (Carl’s dad and my aunt Sandy) but they made it through all of the little portals and no one was left behind.
We ran out of time to do more at Pearl Harbor so Carl and I look forward to returning on another trip to see the Battleship and Aviation Museum and to actually land on the Arizona Memorial.
It was at Pearl Harbor that we met the Scooter rental company to obtain scooters for Carl’s dad and my Aunt Sandy to use for the week for all of our fun activities.
Being a newby scooter driver, my father-in-law promptly bashed his foot into a pole while navigating the scooter onto the shuttle boat and spent the rest of the week nursing a bruised and swollen foot, thinking that it was broken (a visit to the doctor on his return home proved otherwise). Such a bummer-of-a-way to spend the rest his week but at least it happened AFTER the wedding.
And it helped that our rental house was large and open and allowed him to scoot about the house with ease! The kids (young and older) enjoyed having scooter races around the house during down times.
More fun activities to follow the rest of the week.
