Celebrating a Birthday!

Doug's Birthday, that is. And what a wonderful place to celebrate - Waikiki!
Happy Birthday, Doug!

We splurged and spent 2 nights at the Marriott.

We miss those big beds and a bathtub. What a treat!

We were lucky and got tickets for the sold out Oktoberfest at the Hale Koa.




So glad we did.

Kaki and Brad (dock buddies) were there too - trouble for sure!
Survived Oktoberfest!
Lots of Chicken Dancing, great food, drinking contests, and lots of laughter.

Not quite the same as Germany, but we had a great time!
Hawaii Army Museum

There's a great Army Museum in Waikiki and it is free.

The museum is housed in historic Battery Randolph on the grounds of Ft. DeRussy.

We learned lots about life on the islands before the Pearl Harbor attack and the people of the islands.
Surf Museum

A different kind of museum... The Surf Museum at Jimmy Buffets.

Cool boards and a great happy hour - can't beat that!
Shaolin Warriors






The Shaolin Warriors were playing at the beautiful old Hawaii Theater.

22 Buddhist monks from China put on an amazing show - high-flying martial arts and acrobatics.
Beautiful purple hisbiscus

We enjoyed the show, but Cirque Du Soleil is our favorite.

A great Birthday weekend for sure.  Wish you could have joined us - next time!
