THE GATHERING PLACE

Blue Hawaii. That's the color of the water and the sky and the name of an old Elvis Presley movie. Oahu is actually more like an anuenue, the rainbow. Take the white sandy beach of Kailua, the green cliffs of the Ko'olau mountain range, the red in the red ginger, the purple in an orchid, the pink in the fragrant pulmeria, the orange in bougainvillea or the yellow of Hibiscus and a rainbow of colors make up Oahu.

Tourist filled Waikiki Beach is the real gathering place. The swaying palms, the sound of the waves caressing the shore, the view of Diamond Head beyond the beach, the green flash at the sunset as the sun dips into the sea. The melody of slack guitars and even the clink of glasses filled with the nectar of the gods make merry the day or night.

There is plenty to see and do in Oahu. Chinatown to downtown, a vibrant city is Honolulu. Restaurants to please the palates of everyone. Exotic drinks to tempt the tourists. Why not get into the spirit of Aloha. Relax, slow down and enjoy Hawaiian time.
