Garden By The Sea

A  L  O  H  A !
No longer a profit to striving.

Contentment is success.

Nothing to prove

So be sincere.

Compassion comes easy;

What's needed too.

So just be let.

And let it be

With trust.


So Glad
We Had
This Time

Sunny Kapiolani Park

A  L  O  H  A !
 June 11, 1877, Kapiolani Park was 
dedicated as the first public park in Hawaii.
 The park boasts of open green space, 
ponds, the Honolulu Zoo, sports 
facilities, and the Waikiki Shell.

Diamond Head presides 
over the park.
The Hawaiians of old 
named the crater: 
"Leahi."  LINK

Popular for sports, picnics, 
and family events,
 the park is also a 
favorite place for photographs.

" We are here to
laugh at the odds,
and live our lives so well
that Death will
tremble to take us. "
                            Charles Bukowski

Diamond Heal close up.

" The moment one gives 
close attention to 
any thing, even a blade of grass 
it becomes a mysterious, 
awesome, indescribably 
magnificent world 
in itself. "

The Familiar 
"Money Shot"
