Hawaii Update 2

On Sunday morning, Dianne and I drove to the Sand Island Beach park. You can see a photo of the beach park here. It isn’t the nicest beach for swimming, it’s in an industrial area, and there are several “campsites” that appeared to be groups of homeless people. Nevertheless, it was very pretty and we got to see some tugboats taking in a barge that was full of shipping containers.

It isn’t as large as the taste of Cincinnati, but there were many bands and a lot of different types of food to try. It was very hot and there wasn’t much of a breeze. Before going inside, we looked around the civic center and got some pictures of Father Damien, me and the Queen, the Iolani palace, King Kamehameha, etc. Take a look at all the pictures in the group here.

On Sunday evening, Milton arranged for us to see the performance of Cirque Hawaii. It’s a smaller scale version of the Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, but there are some amazing acrobats with great athletic ability! I enjoyed the show. Afterwards the family went to a very nice Chinese restaurant near the theater.
