Day 4, Pride of America, August 16th, 2011-Hilo, Hawaii

On the fourth day of our journey we arrived on Big Island, called Hilo from one side, and Kona from the opposite one.  We disembarked for a beautiful morning walk around Hilo, did a few pictures here and there and proposed them to your attention.

DAY 4. HILO SERENITY. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom (About our Round Cruise around Hawaiian Islands, HILO)

thumbs_kauai17hhawaiiThe more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

We keep enjoying Pacific serenity and ourselves become quieter and quieter, and more philosophical.

Our cruise ship itself contains lots of places of attraction besides the cabins, suits, polite stewards and stewardesses,ShipLibrary(me&Librarian)wonderful restaurants and promenade decks which Larisa used to like them when she was on Mediterranean cruise with us last time and we as always joined her. How pity that she is not with us now. Pity for her son too that he could not make it. But maybe some other time.

Norwegian cruise lines are not worse than a Holland America liner. Crews are different, last time among the staff there were many Philippines, this time they are 80 % mainly Americans. Pleasant atmosphere and well organized vacation plans to see.

SS America Library (emblem)The feeling is here, that if there is the quest for this unwearied peace, it is at the Hawaiian Islands. The quest is constant and universal. Analyze the prayers of the troubled, overborne mankind of all creeds, in every age – and their petitions come down to their irreducible common denominators. Of daily bread and inward peace. Grown men do not pray for vain trifles. When they lift up their hearts and voices in the valley of tears they ask for strength and courage and understanding.

We beg for your understanding us at this point that we spent a lot of time in the Ship Library, where there are collected many interesting and unique books. I have photographed one book by the courteous permission of the young lady librarian (photo to the right). It is “Artists of Hawaii” which I will offer to your attention later at the category “Workshop”. Now watch our photo expose “Ship Library, “Pride of America” 2011:
