hawaii here we come!

We’re off to Hawaii in a couple of hours. Three full days of geocaching, date geocache in hawaiistamping, eating, shopping and maybe even some sleeping. Oh yeah, throw in a couple of those pretty tropical drinks, too. Ahhhh, paradise!

Along the way we’ll be visiting places where I (Kathy) lived in bygone years. The two houses I remember are in Kailua and Honolulu (Navy housing). I fancy drinks in hawaiidon’t know where our quonset hut or the little cottage in Pearl City were located. They’re probably not there anymore anyway. We’ll also cruise by Kailua Intermediate School and Radford High. Maybe even Pearl City Elementary. There are lots of good memories at all of those places. It’ll be a great trip.

Mrs. WS here. I was thinking about all the schools I attended throughout my life and decided I should post them lest I forget where I went at some point in the future. The list is long because I was a Navy brat and we didn’t stay in one place very long.

Jefferson Elementary – Hawthorne, California

Pearl City Elementary – Pearl City, Hawaii

Uncasville Elementary – Uncasville, Connecticut

a school I can’t remember the name of in Norfolk, Virginia (I was there only six weeks)

Poinciana Elementary – Key West, Florida

Sigsbee Elementary – Key West, Florida

Montville High School – Montville, Connecticut (6th grade went to the high school)

Berkeley Jr. High – Moncks Corner, South Carolina

Chicora High – Charleston, South Carolina

Pacific Beach Jr. High – Pacific Beach, California

Kailua Intermediate – Kailua, Hawaii

Radford High – Honolulu, Hawaii

Cascade High – Everett, Washington

Abilene Christian College – Abilene, Texas

Los Angeles Trade Technical College – Los Angeles, California

West Los Angeles College – Los Angeles, California

Antelope Valley College – Lancaster, California

There they are, all the schools I’ve attended. I had quite an education… east coast, west coast, Hawaii when it was a territory and a second time when it was a state. When I went to school in California it was one of the best school systems in the U.S.; now it’s near the bottom of the list. Schools in the east half of the U.S. were the strictest and I learned the most while attending them. Hawaii was the most laid-back, as would be expected, and I had a great time!
