Fireplace in the Tea Room.. They have really yummy lunches.. It is such a relaxing place to go.. Way back in Manoa Valley :)

Wai'oli Tea Room

The historic Wai'oli Tea Room sits on The Salvation Army property in Manoa Valley and is a favorite spot for many visitors, young and old. Built originally as a classroom in 1922 in a children's home, it's become known as a treasured hideaway for gatherings, luncheons and elegant afternoon teas. It has been added to the State and National Registries of Historic Places.
Thought I would try a Black and White.. I think color is nicer but something different :)

Foster Gardens in Downtown Honolulu. They have some really unusual plants and flowers. This is the flower from a Cannon Ball Tree :)

Today was the Annual Aloha Week Parade. All of the flowers are real and the lei are handmade.. It is amazing how many flowers that it takes to make one of those for the horses. All of the flowers and Pa'u Riders were so beautiful...This is Randy Akau, Pa'u Marshall - Awesome Lei maker and friend :) Each Island has a Princess Pa'u Rider to represent them. Here are three princess riders to give an idea.. :)

Island of Kauai

Island of Maui

Island of Niihau

Blowing the Conch Shell at the Beginning of the Parade. Just had to put him in too.. :)
