Being home for Christmas and the trip to Hawaii make this patrol the best yet! The Alabama pulled in to Hawaii on Jan. 11th and I flew out to meet Patrick on the 12th. We got to spend five days together in Hawaii. It was great! Our first night there we got free tickets to Wheel of Fortune. We also hiked Diamond Head, snorkeled, visited the Arizona Memorial, walked around Punch Bowl, and beached-it! It was quite a fun trip! When can we go back?
