Hello and Welcome. I want to take this time to thank all my followers. How very kind of you to take the time to read and view Two Trails One Road. No matter how you come over… via Facebook, Instagram or Word press. Thank You So Much!
As many of you know from reading my last post, which you can find here, we went on a 15 day Hawaiian cruise with Princess Cruise line. We had a wonderful vacation cruise starting out in San Francisco!
My next few posts will take you to each island and my final post will have you tag a long with us on the ship. As we had very many sea days which we really enjoyed.
Happy Sailing… here we go…
Sailing under the Golden Gate was really something and we will never forget it.
A few days at sea and then we landed in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Through Trip Advisor we had a fantastic tour of Honolulu with many stops!

A stop at Waikiki Beach…

Every passing scene we toured was beautiful.
Then Pearl Harbor was in our sights. A sight to see and an emotional experience for us.
Seeing each one of these 52 stones set into a large circle was unbelievable. Each one represents a submarine that was lost in the Pacific.
USS Bowfin that was in the Pacific. Tours are available.
Sweet man getting a chance to view the inside of the Conning Tower of the USS Parche Sub.
Approaching the Arizona was quite solemn.
Seeing the American flag flying …added to the experience.
Inside the Memorial you are able to see the Arizona. My heart just ached…
Once again this flag speaks to me…
The following pictures still amaze me….
Oil is still coming up from the Arizona. Wow!
The Memorial is beautiful and well done. Words are hard to put together to describe this emotional experience for me. However, I want to say Thank You to each and everyone of our Veterans! Your sacrifice is not forgotten.
