Greetings everyone! As we enter the month of May, it made me think back to another May in 1936 when the Hawaii Clipper was christened in the still waters of Pearl Harbor between Ford Island and Pearl City. My fellow traveler and filmmaker colleague, Jeff Riegel, and I visited that very spot last year and it still holds a “spookiness” about it. That however is not the BIG news.. What is it you ask? Stay tuned!
As for the photo, nine year old Pat is photographed saying ““I christen thee Hawaii Clipper for the American Territory of Hawaii.”
