Hokulea is Home

While we were at Pearl Harbor for the regatta, the Hokulea arrived at Magic Island after a three year voyage around the planet (I didn't take this picture - I pulled it down from the internet). While we were waiting for Noe to finish a flute practice, Marlon and I went to the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor to check out the Hokulea berthed across. It was easier than going to Magic Island and trying to get closer with tens of thousands of people trying to do the same thing. And it is always fun to checkout the other boats in the harbor (like this one - big cat!)

Marlon and Noe Dominating!!!

We woke up early this past Saturday to help setup for the Pearl Harbor Yacht Club HYSA Regatta. Putting up a tent, I had flashbacks of field exercises... The kids from all the clubs had a great time - But it was these two that dominated!!! First and second place finishes!!!

Fishing While the Kids were Racing

While the kids were racing El Toro sailboats on Saturday, I went fishing (they were too far from shore for us to see who was who anyways). Spinning setup (TFO Mangrove, Shimano FJ Stradic) throwing ika strips, I ended up catching three - two papio and a roi. I lost a Hammer Bomb slow sinking 0.75 ounce weight (cut off on the reef by something that was stripping line) and then a whole setup with a 1/12 ounce silver kastmaster (cut off by a barracuda) - lots of fun!!!

Some cool ocean inspired art from the gallery at my office

This is the latest showing at the art gallery in the lobby of my office building. Cool little exhibit! Oh -and Happy Father's Day to all you Fathers out there!

More Ahi for Dinner

We still had the cravings from the last batch while we were on Kauai, so I made another batch. I'm drooling on myself right now....

Catching Again - Hickam Flats

Marlon and I hit the flats this morning on the low negative tide. I ended up with three to hand - one po'opa'a and two papio. Marlon found this Medusa Worm (relative of the sea cucumber) - yeah it looks like poop but it is pretty efficient at picking up detritus.
