Sheltered Harbor (Honolulu)

Photographs of Hawaii's amazing landscapes are to come, but today I share some images of Honolulu. The tall white high-rises make this city look perpetually 1965ish to my eyes. I kept expecting to catch sight of Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord's original Steve that is). The views at sunset from Waikiki beach and the mountain are spectacular. Situated between a volcano and the ocean, how could it be otherwise? The fireworks and parade were in celebration of Kamehameha Day. Kamehameha was the monarch who established the Kingdom of Hawaii by unifying the eight islands.

Out of Office Reply

Alas, I am back in the office, but it was nice while it lasted. Aloha Hawaii. A hui hou (until we meet again).
