    Default Honolulu holiday

    Here are a couple of pics I took at Pearl Harbour when daughter and I had a week in Honolulu back in May.

    The USS Arizona Memorial and The USS Missouri Battleship.

    Will put more on if you want to see more. We weren’t able to go on the actual memorial because they were doing renovations, but we did go onto the USS Missouri.

    Cheers, LL

    The USS Missouri Battleship is my favourite ship, I also liked the Arizona, I had large plastic models of both of them as a child, when I reached about 15 years old I shot them into pieces with my pellet gun, a Diana 22 I believe, the gun had the most beautiful telescopic sights. I had a scale model of the McDonald Bluebird record breaking speedboat and many others which I used to sail in a very large boat pond in my parents back yard when we were in Africa. Also a very elaborate mini sailing yacht about 18 inches or so in length, used to sail it on a dam using my fishing rod and line to make sure I got it back again LOL

    The Bluebird was pulled out of the lake a few years back & is slowly being rebuilt.

    LL great view from a copter flight over the harbour and walk over to the memorial.

    That was back in the 1990's.

    Thanks 1101, of course I meant to write Donald Cambell's Bluebird, no sure why I wrote as I did LOL.

    I believe it was made to be unsinkable by being filled with ping pong balls, they were all over the lake when it disintegrated.
