Hawaii

Stan, our friend Napua and myself right after we arrived at our condo. Napua met us at the airport with leis and a basket of fresh fruit and escorted us to our condo. What a friend!!
This is the Church Napua and her husband Pete attend. It was started in 1840. It is small and all Hawaiians who attend. The pastor (Kahu) is quite elderly but sharp as a tack. Pete, is walking across the lawn.
Stan is playing piano for the congregation. I think there were about a dozen people there. It is a sad thing about the churches, the young people are leaving and few are returning.
I asked some lady at the beach to take this picture for us. Right afterwards, we saw a monk seal. It is endangered. According to the literature I have read, there are only about 35 left. There was a seal volunteer on the beach and she was keeping everyone away from it and out of the water. Seals have the right of way here. We were at Gillins beach here.
