Gone Fishing

We headed to the Waikiki Aquarium today for a little weekend adventure. The coral and giant clams in the exhibits were highlights for me. Benji was most impressed with the sharks and hermit crabs, and Alice seemed to enjoy all of the colorful reef fish. The kids also appreciated the grassy field for racing around and snack breaks (needed during an aquarium visit more often than you might guess).

Benji: Is that a humuhumunukunukuapuaa, the state fish of Hawaii?
Alice: Yeses, ititit isis.

Giant glowing clams that made me want to have a bivalve pet

Behold! The Hawaiian apple banana!

Ready, set, go!

During the trip home we stopped at the lookout on the Pali Highway that we drive past on the way to Honolulu. We've always blown right by this turnoff, but figured the time has come for us to document the scenery we are probably starting to take for granted. BTW, the word pali means "cliff" in Hawaiian.

We've sent this one to Ford Modeling Agency
