Reaching Oahu after Five Days at Sea

MS Oosterdam departed Pago Pago Harbor on Friday, April 25.  We spent the next five days at sea, crossing the equator on that Sunday and finally sailing into Oahu, Hawaii on Thursday, May 1.

Alas Ursula and I did not spend a whole lot of time in Honolulu as we’ve been here many times in the past,  including our honeymoon over 35 years ago.  At any rate we had another excursion in mind.  We hurriedly left the ship for something we’d never done before — a food tour of the island.

So on this trip we got to see much more than just Honolulu, and we tasted much more than the standard tourist fare.

This week I’ll be presenting photos of Oahu Island sights, but next week I’ll take you on a culinary tour that will end with a special Fun Food Friday rather than the usual Fun Photo Friday.  On that day, a week from this Friday, I’ll present my recipe for one of Hawaii’s most tempting street foods — Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp just as it tastes coming off an island food truck.

But for this week we’ll concentrate on the Oahu scenery.
