It's the beginning of February and we already have our second set of visitors for the year. The City and County of Honolulu might wise up to us and start taxing us as a hotel if we aren't careful.
We've been able to spend weekends with them and evenings, but can't really take days off since we both work. Karen even had to work some weekends (sad).
I now have an annual pass to Diamond Head as going to the top is a popular quick thing to do. My amateur radio club (yes, I am super nerd) just replaced the antenna feed line for the Diamond Head repeater. If you visit Honolulu and are an amateur radio operator, bring a handheld 2m or 70cm radio and set it for either 146.88(-) or 444.50(+). There is a nightly net at 7:30 PM HST, sometimes we hear visitors.
Finally got to try Cholos on the North Shore. I enjoyed it. It's a 28 mile drive from home, but I don't mind. I don't do any other driving.
Eaten at The Shack twice recently and have been to Hanauma Bay once so far this year. That was my first time to go snorkeling, which is kind of sad after being in Hawaii for about a year and a half now. It was really fun.
