Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona
Happy Monday and welcome to the week of Hawaii recaps. Each of my three posts this week will focus around different day trips we took from our resort at Ko Olina, and today starts with our time at Pearl Harbor. One of the main reasons we decided on Oahu is that both Mike and I wanted to see and pay our respects to Pearl Harbor. The question we probably get most after telling people we went to Oahu is how Pearl Harbor was. The instinct is just to say "great" or "fantastic," but that just seems so insensitive. While we did enjoy getting to see this historic place, we both struggle with how to describe the whole experience: somber, moving, emotional, calming, humbling, and really a must-see.
