The music was great.One of the ladies had come up to the house and trimmed all the yard, manicuring it
so it would look nice for the owners when they returned. This is just one of the fabulous gestures of aloha of the people here. All ethnic groups coming together to love and support each other. We have been gifted with so many leis, so much food and good times while we visit this beautiful island.
Yesterday was Lei Day in Hawaii so we made a quick trip to Kapiolani Park where beautiful items were for sale, music and food.Then we drove to the western shore to Wainae and Pokai Bay where friends were spending the week at the Army Recreation area. They have small cabins on the beach that active duty and retired can rent. For you history buffs, this is ocean side of the infamous Kole Kole pass where the Japanese flew through to surprise the sleeping navy in Pearl Harbor, 7 Dec 1941. On the mountain side of Kole Kole is Scoffield Barracks which is a big Army post. I dropped in to check out the Wainae boat harbor. The winds come down from the pass and the surge is heavy in the marina. Today was no exception. Many side piers are destroyed from the tsunami and slowly some have been repaired.

No one has attempted to retrieve this one from its slip
|This one at least made it to shore.|
