Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

We Rode In A Submarine

Another early morning, and we headed downtown to Waikiki.  We had an 8:30 a.m. appointment for a ride on a submarine.




There were only a few people out at the beach early in the morning.  We took a boat out to our waiting submarine.


We passed a few surfers hoping for some nice waves, which didn't seem to happen.  (Notice none of the surfers are wearing wet suits!)



As we were sitting on the pier, I realized I forgot my Dramamine.  Jordan and I quickly downed our pills, which was a very good thing.  Even being tied to the pier our boat was bobbing on the water, causing us to feel a bit queasy.  It was even worse once we got into the tiny submarine, with no view of land.  I thought for sure that I would put the little bags next our seats to good use.  But, once the submarine started its descent, we both felt fine.  It was quite amazing to actually ride in a submarine and view the sea life.  We saw many fish, a resting sea turtle, and a few eagle rays.  After our adventure, we stayed on the beach for a while.  Jack was a bit disappointed that this beach didn't have the waves like the beach on the North Shore.



This area was actually a lagoon that I can imagine the girls would really enjoy playing in.  We were hoping for warmer water here, but it was cold.

This morning, we went to the swap meet where there were hundreds of vendors selling their wares to sweaty tourists.  I could have bought a hundred things, but ended up only buying cold, fresh fruit to cool off.  Jordan bought a fresh coconut from an old man selling them out of the back of his truck..



And, I thought I'd throw in a picture of Jordan's Christmas tree.  Yes, it is fake, but it is still pretty.



And, I love her little chalk board baskets under her table.  So sweet and cute.

Tomorrow, we will attempt a morning of snorkeling.  The water is chilly, and I do not have a wet suit.  I am not sure how much this old woman can handle...I'm just not sure it is worth the risk.  The older I get, the less I like to feel physically uncomfortable.

Wow, a submarine. Very cool. Sorry the surf temp is so chilly. I hope you get to snorkle. You and Jack are having such a fantastic trip. Yay! And that lagoon looks gorgeous. I know some kids who would've loved to join your girls. ;)
