During the weeks of September 13th and 20th a group of seven of us (affectionately referred to as "the pod") travelled to Hawaii for a vacation in the Islands of Aloha. The first week of this vacation was an American Hawaii Cruise aboard the SS Independence, the only cruise ship in the world with an American registry. The cruise started in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, and then went to: Nawiliwili, Kaua'i; Kahului, Maui (2 days); Hilo, Hawai'i; Kona, Hawai'i; and then back to Oahu. The second week of the trip was split between Oahu (2 days) and Kaua'i (4 days).

The pages that follow represent a photographic journal of this vacation. Four different cameras were used to record these images and each image is identified with the camera which was used to record it:

  • Digital : Nikon CoolPix 900, digital camera (my new toy)
  • 35mm : Pentax P30t, 35mm camera
  • APS : Nikon Nuvis 125i, APS (Advanced Photo System) camera
  • Underwater : Kodak underwater, single use, disposable camera

Photos from Hawaii are best viewed while listening to
Internet Radio Hawaii.
