|Diamond Head from Sand Island|
On Thursday, I visited Sand Island - a strip of land that encloses Honolulu Harbor. It is crowded with the Coast Guard, shipping companies, and other industrial activities. But the state saved the oceanside beach as a recreation area this link.
|The beach was almost empty.|
I bumped into a friend who combs
the beach for glass stones - can you find
the heart shaped blue glass?
|This fisherman hoped to catch dinner.|
This keiki (child) watched the fisherman.
|I found a frog ....|
|.... and a car.|
|They make the perfect pair!|
|I try to capture the kai (ocean) spirit .....|
|.... as it wrestles with the WWII barriers.|
|Crashing onto the beach.|
|The Star of Honolulu departs for its lunch cruise.|
|The Star awaits for the tug and barge to pass.|
|It sails by the docked cruise ship.|
|A hydra foil also departs ....|
|.... and passes the cruise ship.|
|The Aloha Tower (center) stands |
guard over the harbor.
