 The End Of '08 - Part II Xmas & Other Fun! 

This is a combination of pix from December & January. Big events during this time were Christmas, (The BEST day to be on the boat!)...and Fariyal's 40th B'day Bash, which was THE Social event of December!! Surrounded by close family & friends, the soiree was held at the Waikiki Yacht Club and was a blast!! More pics to follow from it in the Part III album.

The Princess Taiping...an old-school (no nails, screws, modern materials of any kind), Chinese Junk from Taiwan.  She's sailed all over the Pacific waters and has been in Hawaii since December. Her remarkable story can be found here:  www.chinesevoyage.com

Fariyals 40th...what a party that was! All the rest of the pix are from this tragic and sad event.  I gave the eulogy to her youth.  It was heartbreaking to see her hit middle age.

It was requested that there be no gifts, but to bring canned goods for the local food bank instead.  We ended up with a quite decent donation at the end of the night.  This is about 1/2 of it.
