Mahalo Hawaii

We had so much fun last week going to Hawaii with some family and friends. It went by way too fast and I was so sad to leave. I'm also sad that my tan is slowly leaving, soon it will be just a memory.  The 2nd day there, we went to the north shore to see the big Pipeline waves where only the pros can surf. Trey wanted a picture with this sign to show just how dangerous the waves really were. 
After watching Pipeline, we drove to the set of Lost, the beach where they were filming. Unfortunately, we only got to see a whole bunch of extras, no Sawyer, Kate or black smoke monster. We had to hike through the wilderness to get a closer look. After this picture is when I starting feeling some itching going on with my foot. Luckily for me, it turned red, swelled up, and itched for the rest of the trip. All for nothing. 
Everyone was taking pictures with this statue. I didn't take the time to read what he was all about, just wanted to steal a lei since he had so many for himself, but the others told me it would bring me bad luck so I didn't. But since I am a crowd follower, I made Trey take a picture with him. I think tourists will take pictures with any kind of statue, no matter what the significance. 
We got to go to Pearl Harbor our last day in Hawaii. This was the memorial for the USS Arizona where most of the people died. It was crazy to see the ship still sunk in the water. This is my sister Ashley and sister in law Mickell.
And last, but definitely not least, my favorite picture from the trip. No description required, except please don't let the speedo distract you from the puka shell necklace.

I wish i were still there! the last picture is classic. I had to blow it up to full size to get a good look & i noticed his fantastic uni-brow! Where do these people come from???...probably Europe

So after a closer look, pretty sure that dude (with the necklace) has mental/physical deficiencies. Not only are his eyes extremely close together (which would explain above said uni-brow) but he is very cross eyed as well, might even be able to look himself in the eye... Whoever he is looking at must be very pleasing to his eye. -phil

Aww, I haven't been to Hawaii since I married Brad! I'm so jealous. ... I think that statue is Duke Kahanamoku (if it's at Waikiki Beach, then that's the one). He's the guy who basically made surfing popular. There's your Polynesian lesson for the day! ... Last time I was in Hawaii, there was this drunk guy who stripped down to his whitey tities and jumped in the ocean. What happens when white clothing gets wet?! My eyes still burn when I think about it! :)
