Hawaii Five-O

Pearl Harbor – Day 12, Hawaii Five-O

We awoke today to a terrifying Emergency Alert stating: ‘Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.’

Chaos and panic ensued as we attempted to work out what to do and where to go and finally after about 45 agonising minutes, the all clear came through and apparently it was all a big ‘error’.

After this shaky start to our day, it seems the universe has a sense of schadenfreude, and the irony was not lost on us, as we set off for our scheduled visit to Pearl Harbor.

We visited the historic sites, museum, and the Arizona Memorial and avoided the missiles and torpedoes, before heading back into Waikiki to watch the sunset and drink some hard liquor!

My favourite photo from today is this shot of the Arizona memorial …
