Little Girls Love Waikiki Ducks

A   L   O   H   A !

We are free ducks. 

The lagoons of Waikiki, 
 Kapiolani Park,
The water features
and ponds
of resorts and condos
make us very happy.

We even hang out
with the flamingos
at Honolulu Zoo!

" You must dare 
to disassociate yourself 
from those who would 
delay your journey...
 Leave, depart, 
if not physically, 
then mentally. 
Go your own way, 
quietly, undramatically, 
and venture toward 
trueness at last. "
                     Vernon Howard

 “ To have courage 
for whatever 
comes in life– 
lies in that. ” 
                          Teresa of Ávila

Off With You 
and Your Camera 

Mother & Child

 isn't something you
 it's something 
you remember. "
                  Oscar Levant

" Sometimes
 the poorest parent
 leaves his children
 the richest inheritance. "
                             Ruth E. Renkel


Thank YOU
for Visiting!

i would like to be a violin in a master hand playing Bach, Mozart or Beethoven, that would assuage all fears from all who heard.

Why a duck!

Charles Gramlich said...

There's a couple of houses along our dirt road where people raise a variety of ducks, chickens and turkeys. Always cool to walk by there.

Now you have the smart ducks. The ones that chose to live up here in the cold NE are sure missing out on your Hawaiian lifestyle.

I saw those ducks in Ala Moana and was startled. Did we always have ducks here? I don't remember them when I was growing up.
