A small, family farm in Wisconsin

Exploring Oahu

Thursday we split up. One group went to Pearl Harbor and associated tours and exhibits. They walked many a mile and came home tired, sore, but well educated. They all said they learned many things about the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the war, that they hadn’t known before. I couldn’t do the walking so Kay and I set out with no real destination in mind.
Our first stop was He’eia State Park. There were trails and picture taking vantage points, a nice little gift shop, and many examples of local flora and fauna. There really wasn’t much in the way of fauna, to be honest. Wild chickens, cats, chameleons and birds. On the other hand, there were many and varied trees and bushes and plants.
We got back in the car and found the Beach where we’ll be having our pot luck with family. White sand, restrooms, and a pavilion. It’s going to be perfect. We vegged there for a while, enjoying the beautiful breeze and people watching.
Our final stop was KailuaTown for a bit of shopping.
Today the kids have gone to the Farm Fair, which is an annual ag fair.
The following photos were taken at the He’eia State Park.
