We were in Hawaii for seventeen days at the beginning of April 2018 and only had to use sunscreen twice. That mean we got to see the sun twice. The temperatures were in the eighties but so was the relative humidity.
It was an eat or get eaten sort of vacation….

This section is just for giggles. There is good food and booze to be had in Hawaii.

I’ll drink to that
Waimea Botanical Garden – Ohau
These chicks are being raised in a quad at the University of Hawaii – Monoa. Meg has a series of shots showing the whole cycle. We were there just toward the end when they are about to go out on their own.
Mark and Meg have a competition where the object is to count the tines on the feathers in our bird pictures. These are pictures Meg took shortly after we left Hawaii.
Black Capped Night Heron
Fishing Competition (Hawaii Stilts and Juvenile Night Heron and Adult Night Heron)
That is about all we did on our Hawaiian vacation.
ps – We did go deep sea fishing one day. There was a small craft advisory with ten foot swells. We spent ten hours out on the sea in a thirty-five foot boot. At the right speed and direction, even the captain felt a little green. I didn’t bother taking any pictures as I didn’t feel up to it. We never even got a bite. This trip was just before the devastating storm hit Kauai. So we have been deep sea fishing four times. This is the third time we didn’t catch any fish.
