National Geographic : 1932 Mar
This Summer... when your ship swings into Honolulu Harbor SUDDENLY yOU are in the harbor. Speed boats, outrigger canoes, circle around; a half-pint sea-sled spurts over the waves like a drunken flying fish. Excite ment lines the rail. Tug-boats bring laugh ing, jostling crowds, arms filled with leis. A native band plays the Song ofthe Islands. Brown heads dot the water, coaxing for coins... Coco palms wave from the shore. Balmy air, freighted with blossoms.Blue ocean, emerald bay-green hills back of Honolulu. Behind you Diamond Head juts out to sea, shutting away the pressure of everyday realities. There's fabled Punch bowl hill. High Tantalus mountain. You have expected all this, but it is a surprise. Hawaii, the breeze-cooled tropics-a ca dence in your blood. Come to Hawaii now. Spring and sum mer are lavish with color-flame trees, hi biscus, plumeria, gardenia. There's much to see-fern jungles, tropical fruits, sugar and pineapple plantations. Cliffs, volcanic craters; flying fish, ancient villages, shops. In July the thermometer may get as high as 85°, but the cooling breeze says let's golf. Swim, fish, ride, hike, cruise by boat or plane among the islands. Rest. Where you can't remember what you came to forget. New Low Fares April 1 You can comfortably make the round-trip from the Pacific Coast, all expenses included, for less than $300. And you can pleasantly crowd Hawaii into a three weeks holiday.
