This tiger shark (manu) was inspired by a life crisis. Some people say, "what goes around, comes around", and these fish really do that.
Hopefully they won't bump you to see if you're delicious.
Everyone loves a happy face.
I imagine that if Georgia O'Keeffe were to paint a bird of paradise, it might look something like this.
I love these big colorful fish. I can hear them crunching on the coral when I'm snorkeling.
Waking up under a palm in blossom to the pink clouds over the ocean. Honl's Beach is a sweet cove a few blocks south of town.
"One of the most thrilling experiences for those who visit the island of Hawaii is swimming with honu, dolphin and manta.
Whether it is a glance, a glimpse or a moment you can capture with our island's natural inhabitants, that memory will be yours alone.
Respect the lives of those who make their home in the sea. You are visiting, give them space in their domain."
My sister taught at Kamehameha School on Oahu for 30 years. I spent many summers visiting her and Uilani.
At that time, you had to be at least 25% of true Hawaiian decent to attend Kam school. Hawaii is a melting pot of Pacific cultures with local flavors, enjoy them all.
To learn more about true Hawaiian culture, visit a hula halau, study mele, practice aloha, talk story with the locals, and above all, live pono.
