GrannyNurse (and the others on your Cruise)


Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone

For all your good wishes. We really need this short trip as I have spent the summer transitioning into my retirement and my DH is transitioning us into a one income family and leading us into new ventures in our 18 month old (new) business.


We're going to spend a few days in Washington state seeing Mt St Helens and at Columbia River Gorge in Oregon post cruise. I really believe the Lord arranged this trip for us as a well-deserved getaway.


You all are so great. I've been on this board for almost 3 and a half years and really appreciate all of you. I love the friends we've made here and hope to see everyone at least once on a future HAL cruise.

Haaheo e ka ua i na pali
Proudly sweeps the rain cloud by the cliffs
Ke nihi ae la i kanahele
As onward it glides thru the trees
E uhai ana paha i ka liko
It seems to be following the liko
Pua a hihi lehua o u
The a hihi lehua of the vale
Aloha oe, aloha oe,
Aloha oe, farewell to thee,
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
Thou charming one who dwells among the bowers
One fond embrace, a hoi ae au
One fond embrace, before I now depart
Until we meet again, until we meet again.
Until we meet again, until we meet again
O ka halia aloha kai hihi mai
Thus sweet memories come back to me
Ke hone ae nei i kuu manawa.
Bringing fresh remembrance of the past
O oe no ka'u ipo aloha
Dearest one, yes, thou art mine own
A loko e hana nei.
From the true love shall ne'er depart
Maopopo kuu iki i ka nani,
I have seen and watched the loveliness
Na pua rose o Maunawili,
Thou sweet rose of Maunawili
Ilaila hiaai ai na manu,
And 'tis there the birds oft love to dwell
Mikiala i ka nani o ka liko.
And sip the honey from thy lips


Have a GREAT time GN!!
