Here is where my dad drowned August 3rd 2007 — on a Waikiki beach in Honolulu, Hawaii.
As he stripped down, his last words were;  "This is paradise!"  ...and
then chased after the waves.
This was the morning after my parents had celebrated their
anniversary, and my impulsive (and not-too-shy) dad decided to take a
swim in his undies while my mother sat on the beach a few yards away,
writing her diary, (I was sound asleep at a nearby hotel after a long
night at the billiards).  Unfortunately, the lifeguard was attending a kid's cut foot the very same moment my dad went under water.
The soundtrack you hear is one of my dad's favorite — Edith Piaf's "Mon Dieu" — a song my mom and dad had listened to shortly before this very sad and unexpected accident.
