Back from an epic adventure

We're home from the most amazing [and exhausting] 2 weeks across the pond.....an epic adventure indeed.....you'll no doubt get fed up of hearing about it....but here are just a few highlights.
San Francisco
 visiting Alcatraz....how can a defunct prison be so fascinating??
meeting  up with Rinda [and Luna] for an amazing tour round the Mission district
a sunset cruise under Golden Gate Bridge

Hawaii
a poignant visit to Pearl Harbour
Hawaii's Supreme Court building......shame there was no Steve McGarrett!
 a fascinating afternoon spent at the Dole Pineapple Plantation
a birthday meal [with complimentary dessert] at The Top of Waikiki revolving restaurant
  
a display of fire walking

Los Angeles
 laughing in the Waxworks Museum [some of them were terrible!]
 searching the stars
and the Hollywood Walk of Fame
being very excited at actually seeing the Hollywood sign in person
Now we just need a holiday to recuperate!!!
