Hawaii Photo of the Day

A  L  O  H  A !

Got My Lion Luck!

A  L  O  H  A !
 Lion Dancing at Chinese New Year Time
is one of my favorite things in the world.

 So we were seated by the window of
Yet Wah Restaurant in San Rafael
eagerly anticipating dancing 
lions and tons of great noise.
[The one time of year I like noise]

I saw a fit teenage girl lion dancing in
Honolulu in recent years. And we
remarked on it. It's always been
a boy thing. But look! Girls
really eager to do their moves.
You GO Girls!

 I was impressed by their preparation

"There's only one thing 
I never did and 
wish I had done: 
climbed over a fence. "
                  Queen Mary

I bet these girls
climb anything
they want to!

 Lion Heads UP!
Headed inside!

This is no One-Lion town!

They like to go up high
and look around

Distracted by Take-Out

 Back to the work at hand:
eating those tasty and
lucrative Red Envelopes!

"Lions are so BIG!
My camera is 
so small."
She thinks to herself

The Lion's Heartbeat.
Rhythm of the dance.

 These lions 
did NOT stop moving!

 Who has who?
Dad approves.
Brother is 
less certain.

 I like how both patrons
have their fingers
in their ears.
[We were wearing 
our earplugs, as
do the participants.
NOT my first lion dance!]

Oh Good Fun!

and Good Luck
with YOU!
