Well here in Hawaii, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and where do the people go? Not to the museum.
We can count on a drop in visitors at Bishop Museum when it’s a beautiful day.
Because…. They are all at the beach!
And here in Hawaii once you get to the beach what do you do?
Pray for surf
Have a great summer everyone.
My grandson checking out the surf with his dad
My grandson started to surf last year. His father takes him every chance he gets. These photos were taken when he was just starting out. Yes it was Father’s Day last week but for this dad he has made it father’s day with his son every day of the week. What a lucky boy.
Paddling into the sunset
My grandson wanted some photos of him surfing and what could I say. An afternoon at the beach while the sun was going down and a camera? I could not say no. unfortunately the camera I have now is not the best. In frustration I gave my good Cannon to my son. Yeah I regret it but my son is doing wonderful with it and I know I would never have done that well. It is in good hands.
Going for it
It was hard for me to focus my cheaper camera and hard for me to tell where my grandson was. When he stood up I was scanning the ocean. I only seemed to find him when he was catching a wave. Frustrating.
A father introducing his kids to the ocean
As I sat against the wall with my feet planted in the sand. I scanned the beach and watched every one in different stages of enjoyment. I saw this father with his two children and could not resist taking the photo. What an experience for these two little guys and what a great dad to take the time to introduce them to the wonderful world of the ocean.
Sun setting and the boards are leaving the water
I wasn’t the only one taking photographs. You can just see two people on the other side of the surfboards. They were taking turns with their friends standing there while they took each others photos.
The colors were like an old-fashioned post card as the sun descended. Just fabulous.
Just bobbing along
Kids and adults bobbed along as the sky turned like a color wheel. Even the water sliding back to the ocean sparkled like champagne. I may not have been able to drink it but it still made me feel as happy as though I had.
Deciding to get out of the water
Father and son take one last look and decide it’s time to get out of the water. With that decision made I packed up my camera and we headed back home. All was well in our world. My grandson was happy with his father’s day.
