Brooklyn Bridge & Diamond Head

After a rainy Saturday, the sun smiled out again on Sunday. A one day winter, huddling cozy indoors is fun and restorative. Then Spring and Summer return to Waikiki - it's a day at the beach! So before I go out to play, I'll leave you with a little poem called:

Landmarks
Brooklyn Bridge
and
Diamond Head
are friends.
Ships look to them
so do birds and clouds.
Both remember horses fondly,
as jets fly
overhead.

A day on the beach? It's perishing here, I wish I was coming with you.

I like that pineapple water tower.

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm with Travis. That pineapple water tower is precious.

Something like that, well-designed and elegant, thrills me so much more than a lot of so-called Installation Art. That is installation art to my way of thinking.

Like the idea of the themed water tower. How easy navigating around town would be if that was picked up on...you know; a big saline drip over the hospital, etc.

Ake: I wish you were here gigling with me!

Travis: Yeah, me too! So dumb to take down a landmark like that, eh?

Charles: You just used "precious" to make me laugh Dr, Pepper out of my nose, didn't you? ;)

Dave: YES! Folk art triumphs!!

Kiw: Aloha, so NICE to see YOU!

Brother T: I like the way you think!

The pineapple water tower is neat. But I sure would enjoy a couple of days at the beach, languishing in the sun...
