ANTICIPATION BUILDS as we make final preparations for a vacation to Hawaii's Big Island. Tickets...check! Swimwear...check! Suntan lotion...check! The list goes on. We look forward to a wonderful time exploring the natural and cultural wonders of our 50th State.
The Polynesians regard Hawaii as sacred; a portal to the afterlife -- a place of the gods. We, of course, look forward a much shorter visit to soak up sun, explore beaches, volcanic landscape, and savor the tropical beauty. And to that end, we've purchased round trip tickets and packed light!
Preparations are done as we await our ride to the airport. So one more time... Camera...check! Medicine...check! Phone...check! Hey, where's the boarding pass?
