Wednesday September 30, shopping day, Best Buy, Home Depot, Costco, Hardware store, West Marine, diner outside at Tropics, baked banana bread with sourdough starter. After I think I’ve perfected a banana bread recipe, I tried a new one using sourdough starter, oh boy not sure which one is better!
Thursday October 1, more sightseeing.
Larry, (who is an USAF Lt. Col. retired) took us on base at Bellows Air Force Station as well as Kaneohe Bay Marine Corp base.
We also stopped to see the Chinaman’s hat.
Then to the punch bowl, National Cemetery of the Pacific, a memorial to those who served in the armed forces. It is a volcanic crater’s with beautiful tree lined roads and is meticulously landscaped. The Hawaiian name is Puowaina, which translated as “Hill of Sacrifice”. (Hawaiians used to offer human sacrifices there.) The memorial has a small chapel and tributes to the various battles fought in the Pacific depicted in beautiful mosaic pictures. Etched on the marble walls along the stairs are the names of those who’s bodies were not recovered from the Pacific theater.
For dinner, we stopped at a grocery store picked up some salmon. I baked it with a honey, soy sauce mixture, served with roasted potatoes and green beans.
