June 12: We are delighted to say that Virtually Hawaii is proving to be really popular on the Net. On some days, we have had over 4,000 different people visiting our site. As a result, we have been spending a lot of our time trying to improve the layout of our pages, as well as handle some issues related to our over- worked server. Hopefully, you will find the format to your liking. In the next week or so, we will start adding new images to the Virtual Field Trips and other parts of our site. Come back and visit us soon to see what these look like!
