Our first day was a full one as were most of the others. After a buffet breakfast in the hotel cafe and an orientation of the day's activities, we headed for the beach. Arrangements had been made for our group to have surfing lessons, use boogy boards or go for an outrigger canoe ride. We returned to the hotel for lunch. Then Art Reed gave a presentation about coral in preparation for our visit to the Honolulu aquarium. It was about a 20 minute walk to the aquarium. It had many interesting exhibits showing tropical and Hawaiian fish and other marine life. We spent several hours there, and then returned to the hotel and walked to dinner at "Cheeseburger in Paradise". I thought the restaurant was very crowded and quite hot. The cheeseburgers were pretty average. After dinner we returned to the hotel and we went down to the beach to walk along looking at shops and then watching the sunset over the ocean.
