Ford Island, Pearl Harbor

Took the day off – on the Q.T. Picked up Marion at the bank around noon. Went to Trader Vic’s where we “ate lunch.” Out to the apartment of a friend of hers at Waikiki. I went swimming at the Halekulani without her, which put us on the worst terms yet. Dinner with Marion and Jean — very good. No rooms to be had at the Royal Hawaiian, so I slept the night in a wicker seat — very poor sleeping.
