For love of good ol' Hawaii

Thanks for the great articles on old Hawaii ["Still a Draw," by Catharine Hamm, Oct. 18]. I first went there in 1953 with my parents on the Lurline. Stayed at the Royal many times. I have a few of the Matson menus framed in my house in Avalon on Catalina. Miss the old days. I am planning to go back to Oahu soon; I haven't been there since 1982. My usual trip is to Maui, but that has changed for the worse.

The world has changed for the better, but I still miss the old days. Maybe I just remember the good things.
