Mānana Island is called “Rabbit Island” because it looks like a rabbit’s head. I didn’t see the resemblance. The nearer island is supposed to resemble a shark’s fin.

Next, Waimānalo Beach. The audio tour called the parking area “Sherwood Forest” because of the high theft rate (of the rich to give to the poor? Maybe that just romanticizing the crime…)

Next, a quick stop at the bronze statue of Akebono (which was cordoned off because it recently fell) and then a late lunch at Uahi Grill, seen on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Cousin ordered a very yummy Furikake Tofu Sandwich. I ordered the Red Curry Grilled Fish.

The Day Before

The daily lava pour at the Bishop Museum, July 31, 12:10 p.m. The sounds and intensity were too much for the boy and he left his cousins to watch.
