The journey: From John's Island to the real islands in the middle of the Pacific. A slow cruise and good way to escape completely. Imagine about 2460 miles at about 21 miles an hour. Los Angeles to Hilo, Hawaii, takes about 4 days. The picture above was taken on morning of the third day just as we were entering the tropics by crossing over the Tropic of Cancer. The vastness of the Pacific Ocean is difficult to fully appreciate, but this journey helps. It's good to be back home too.

To answer your question about rain.
We get rain, and there is a poem little kids are taught that sums it up.
bring May flowers
May flowers bring June brides
June brides brings Oscar, Wanda and Jim
back together again.
I can't remember the whole thing and I didn't know there were dozens of variations.
