Congratulations to the entire Sig Zane gang on the grand opening of their new retail location in Chinatown. Check them out if you happen to be wandering the downtown streets on any given Aloha Friday, as that will be the only day of the week that they will be open for business. I like that schedule! – RM
Whoever said Disneyland was “The Happiest Place on Earth” obviously has never been to Makua with the ohana. Many mahalos to Uncle Nick for holding down the camp site, Uncle Blake for the horsey rides, Uncle Rico for the all-wheel rides on the quad, and last but not least Uncle Kai for making it all happen!
Decided to observe the unofficial state holiday that is known simply as “The Eddie” yesterday. All I can say is that it was the most intense public spectacle I have witnessed. The crowd was completely sleep deprived and insane, the looks of fear and stoke on the surfer’s faces was as real as it gets, the waves were exploding across the bay like dynamite, the jet skis were in a never ending battle trying not to get blown up by the 50ft. mountains of moving water. Capri and I found a nice tree to climb and took in the crazy views. She felt safer off the sand since the river section of the beach was washing out every other set and taking with it anything in it’s path, including man, woman and child. After hours of watching the electrifying show we retreated to the back of Waimea Valley to soothe our nerves in the cool pond below the waterfall. I can’t describe how good that calm, still water felt so I’ll put it as Capri said…”ahhhhh!” – RM
