I got back from Hawaii around 3 a.m. today. I'm feeling a little wiped out by jet lag and lack of sleep. My body clock is trashed, as Rob would say. I have to get to bed soon so I can get up and go to work tomorrow.

It was a good trip. The weather wasn't the best. It was windy and raining when we arrived, and it rained on and off for a few days. Each day had its share of sunshine, though. We weren't happy with the room we were initially given, and it was two days before we were able to get upgraded to a room with an ocean view. Oh, and my back went out, but that didn't slow me down. It was just a little uncomfortable.

Apart from those minor problems, it was an enjoyable time. We mainly did things we have done before -- climbing to the top of Diamond Head, visiting the North Shore (they were experiencing unusually high waves due to the weather), hanging out at the beach. We had the idea that we could climb Koko Crater, but when we got there we couldn't find a trail and there were No Trespassing signs in abundance, so we crossed the highway to Hanauma Bay and spent a few hours there instead (until it started to rain).

I will post some photos tomorrow, and catch up with my friends list.
