Just watch for the little shopping center, its on the road that follows the North Shore, about fifteen miles east from where you turn onto it if you come up from Schofield Barracks. Watch for a Starbucks and a little supermarket, and a surfer/head shop thing on the right. Park in the parking lot across the street from it, and follow the pathways down to the beach. Here's a cool shot I took at my feet right after the tide went out:

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Will sure check it.

Hopefully soon. Damn remodeling is going to end sometime and then I'll need a rest and get my sanity or whatever is left of it back.

Yeah,those tiger sharks are nasty SOB's but I applaud the sharks for attacking the bottom feeding attorney.

Particularly considering that he's an attorney, I was surprised/impressed by his response:

Quote:
Miller said his 11-day vacation in Hawaii with his wife Lisa and his in-laws turned about "180 degrees" opposite from what he had planned. But he said he still loves the ocean.

"It's their environment. We're visitors to it," he said, adding, "All we can do is try not to look like food."

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

He must be a fake lawyer. So previous statement by FTL about sharks not biting lawyers out of professional courtesy might not be exactly true.
