An Evening Stroll through Waikiki

On Saturday night, I dropped Andrew off at the Ward Center for an event with his leadership class.   David and I continued onto Waikiki Beach.  Above, Diamond Head overlooks Queen's Beach.

We strolled down Kalakaua Avenue, home of couture shops  that cater to Asian tourists.   These lovely wahine (ladies) posed for my blog.

This honu (turtle) welcomes tourists in the Outrigger Hotel.

David poses with the lion inside the historic Moana Surfrider Hotel.

We enjoyed the violinist playing on Prince Kuhio Beach.

The jetty provided a panoramic view of Waikiki Beach.  

I zoomed onto the pink hotel, the Royal Hawaiian.

Here's the Moana Surfrider again, a popular venue for Korean weddings.

Walking back to my car, we notice the keiki (children) from a hula halau (school), waiting to perform on Prince Kuhio Beach.

Also waiting are the wahine (women) of the hula hulau (school).

As the sun set, the hula halau treated tourists to Hawaiian cutlure.

Do you have a favorite dance?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  This giveaway is open to all readers.  Comments are open through Saturday, March 9, 10 pm in Hawaii.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, March 10, on SOS Aloha.


Kim in Hawaii

No matter how many sunsets I photograph, they always take my breath away .....


  1. I love "Gangnum Style", it's my new favorite dance. Beautiful pics Kim.

  2. Though I'm not much of a dancer, I love "Flamenco". The costume, the steps and the beat.

  3. I love watching the Argentine Tango.... So sexy...

  4. I don't have a favorite dance. I like seeing all the Polynesian dances though. What a lovely tour on Waikiki....thanks for the sharing the great photos.

  5. We stayed in the Surfrider many moons ago. I am more of a watcher and of all kinds.

  6. I like watching belly dancers.

  7. Watching a well done waltz. Remember Audrey Hepburn in War and Peace.

  8. My favorite dance is the kind you can watch. I am not a great dancer.

  9. My favorite dance to actually dance is the Fox Trot. Finding a partner to dance with is a whole other story! If I'm watching, it would be contemporary because it can evoke such emotion. I'm going to miss all of these wonderful pictures, Kim, especially the beautiful sunsets.

  10. Don't have a fav dance

  11. Pics love them Ty,,I ws ica break dance

  12. Glad to see you're not quite done yet. I love the waltz. Tweeted.

  13. I love the fox trot and the waltz.

  14. I can't dance to save my life...seriously. But the funny thing is I like watching people dance. Kids at my high school used to break out into the Electric Slide all the time, used to crack me up.
