|Kite surfers off a very windy stretch of beach on the west end of the North Shore. We stopped at several beaches yesterday afternoon, but did not see too many people in the water, except these folks who could enjoy the water with a little extra help.|
They're part of security staff, and they're called "aloha ambassador recreational officers."
Leialoha and Aaron can be very nice, but they can also act as an effective enforcers when nonguests try to take advantage of the hotel.
I was not trying to use the hotel facilities when I met them yesterday morning. They were folding towels for guests using the hot tub and pool as I walked through their area.
So, we enjoyed a nice visit.
You don't have to look hard to find these guys. Kinda like the deer population in Selle. They're everywhere, especially at the parks and beaches. We stopped at a beach yesterday which was overrun with chickens and kitty cats and an occasional pigeon.
Everyone seems to get along, and the cats appear to be very contented with their lot in life.
|Waves rolling up to the shore like this one kept the swimming numbers to a minimum, but not the awe.|

Some aspects of Oahu are beyond words, especially the sunsets. We've had several periods of clouds and rain, which have not stopped our fun, but when the sun is shining or going to bed, there's nothing quite like it. One more day of fun; then we head home. So far, it's been a wonderful experience.
