A Stoll Down Waikiki Beach

Come stroll down the street by Waikiki Beach with me!


You can watch a man building an elaborate sandcastle.

If you really like it, you can put some money in his bucket to support the arts.


You can watch a mime sit as still as a statue.

If you put money in his bucket he will dance for you.

There was a guy begging for money on the street, but in Waikiki Beach, having a gimmick will get people to give you their money a lot faster.

You can stop in at The Stupid Factory and read funny tee shirts and funny pajamas.

You can stop in front of the statue of Duke Paoa Kahanamoku and try to throw a lei up onto his arms. You can call your friends and tell them to log in to http://www.honolulu.gov/multimed/waikiki.asp
and you can wave at them.

Then you can stop at the statue of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole and if you don't know who he is, you can find out here.

  1. Just as we were leaving, Mr. Sandman knocked his castle over. He'd been working on a different one and I guess the rain must've gotten to it. He grabbed a huge shovel and destroyed it!

    Thanks for meeting up with me and letting me meet your beautiful family! You are truly living in paradise!

  2. Reading your blog, I am missing Hawaii. We usually visit twice a year, often the big island and Oahu, but probably not this year because we have another commitment.

    Have you seen Magnum PI? Now is the time to watch it. Once you know the island you realize he is often headed in the wrong direction. Love the show, a different time.
