Brian and Big Al wanted to go to the beach, while T-Rex wanted to do something else. The compromise was to head back over to Waikiki so T-Rex and I could go to the aquarium for awhile, and then meetup with everyone else at the jetty (fun snorkeling) near it (and a lifeguard) at Waikiki.
T-Rex and I of course saw tons of fish. Our favorite was the "slackjaw wrasse" that can project the inside of it's mouth forward and out of it's lips to grab smaller fish as they go by. We had to watch it a couple times because it was just that...... gross.
Meanwhile, Brian and Cheesie were snorkeling up a storm on the quieter side of the jetty.
Cheesie would pop out for a little bit and then head right back in to find the fish.
Blondie prefers the sad and building of sand castles to the ocean surf. Since she went under at North Shore she isn't too keen on getting in with the waves.
Brian managed to get pictures with my underwater camera, although the screen seems to be pretty useless in the bright water unless the sun is in the perfect position. Above is a spotted puffer fish.
A little moorfish
This is the "famous" state fish. The Humu humu nuka nuka apua'a. This one (and another one) were easy to spot from the jetty.
Later on, we headed back to the house and found that Brian's parents, aunts and uncles went to hear Jerry Santos play. That left Brian's sisters, brothers, and all of the kids behind. The girls have loved hanging out with their Texas cousins, and all evening found us....

doing the "wobble" and just plain cutting up.
I have no idea what Wayne was doing here,
but Lori was enjoying her dinner
and our niece "D" was working on her knitting. She finally found some needles and got me to sit down with her to teach her. She's doing really well with her dishcloth.
Here is a shot of my end of the table, helping "D" and chatting with Leigh Ann,
