Here Comes Santa - In a Canoe!

Aloha & Welcome to
Monday in Waikiki

click on photos to feel some sunshine
The morning moon was high in the sky. . .

The Pink Hibiscus lured me in for a closer look. . .

"Earth laughs in flowers."
Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"

The keiki (the children) had practiced for this day. . .

"There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child."
Erma Bombeck


Huffing and puffing
I made it to the appointed spot on da beach.

Then we spotted him,
far out past the breakers.
Was it really him?

As he drew closer,
all doubt fled.

Wearing his tropic-weight outfit
and happily barefoot:

Santa is in Waikiki!
