Our 35th reunion’s final get together was at Secret Island. The secluded swim spot is part of Kualoa Ranch and was made available to us by John Morgan. Thanks, John, for your generous gift to our class.
Secret Island is a sandbar in Kaneohe Bay. Getting there requires riding a shuttle boat across a shallow lagoon. Once across, a short stroll takes you to a to the activity area: a spot replete with volleyball, badminton, kayaks, canoes, hammocks, and a panoply of other diversions.
Remembering our 25th reunion, when the same beach was full of kids, it was sad to see fewer kids in evidence. They are all growing up! That said, there was a lively group of 40+ classmates and the conversation was ever flowing.
Bob Jordan brought some “Hawaiian Tomato Berries”; teeny, tiny tomatoes that he finds growing wild. That, and his dumpster diving tips made for an interesting and potentially profitable conversation. More on that in a later post.

Thus ends my reunion report. It was fun seeing all of you and I hope we can keep in touch via this blog. I have a lot of upcoming posts covering individual classmates so stay tuned.
One more thing …
I know that I did not have the opportunity to chat with everyone so, please, drop me a line and we will work together to get something up. Remember, I can’t write about what I don’t know … so tell me!
