A visit to Fiji in the South Pacific ...


Page One ~ En route, a three-day stay at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii


Built in 1901, The Sheraton Moana Surfrider is 102 years old, with several new wings and additions over the years.

The Victorian-style hotel has been renovated and restored to its original glory.

The Banyan Tree was planted before the hotel was built, about 110 years ago.
