They were members of the 822nd Tauck Tour and were escorted by Mr. Nell Zaer. Miss Robbins and Mrs. Ward toured the islands of Maul, Oahu, Hawaii and Kauai. While on the island of Oahu they stayed at the Royal Ha- waiian Hotel on the edge of Waikiki Beach. They visited the windward side of the island and saw pineapple and sugar cane plantations and fascinating Sea Life Park. The Waikiki side Jffered beautiful Diamond Head, Ala Monna Shopping Center, Pearl Harbor and the Interna- .tional Market Place. The oldest of the Hawaiian chain is Kauai which proved to be truly beautiful with its ma- jestic tranquility. On the nor- thern shores they visited the Fern C~rotto and took a heli- copter flight over Poipu Beach and Hanalei Valley. The south side of the islano proved to be just as beautiful with stops at the Spouting Horn, Hanapepo Valley, Captain Cook's Landing and Nawiliwili Harbor. Highlights from the island of Hawaii -- the "Big Island" in- cluded a diverse range. The windward side of the island where Hilo is located is the sight of the Hawaiian National Park and the Kilauea Volcano with its fire pit, steam vents and giant tree fern forests. A tour was next taken of an orchid nursery and then on to the moun- tain meadows of Kailua-Kona, where the famous Parker Ranch and Kona coffee plantations are found. The "Valley Isle" of Maul included visits to the historic whMing port of Lahaina, lao Valley and the Baldwin Mis- sionary Home. Miss Robbins and Mrs. Ward enjoyed many more things from the Islands and found them dif- ferent and distinctive in their own way.
