Mom, Ed and I, Don Voth, had a magical time in Hawaii—delightful! We will always remember February 1981. I gave my mom a fresh lei every morning.
I have never been very intrigued with Hawaii, but truly enjoyed it.
In Honolulu, we had a delightful hotel right on Waikiki Beach. A highlight was having lunch at the famous pink, Royal Hawaiian Hotel.
Maui was exotically beautiful—green, lush and dramatic.
Our stunning hotel was open-air with peacocks roaming and meandering pools of water.
I hiked with Mom to the far side of the island so she could wade in the South Pacific Ocean. She was thrilled! Now, she had been in the South Pacific. She was exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel.
One night we felt a slight earthquake. It awakened us from our sleep. We celebrated the next day by having breakfast on our balcony
---a first for my Mom.
Next, OUR LAST NIGHT.
