    Those sunset photos are definitely stunning!

    I googled tako and ika and it sounds like tako is dried octopus and iko is dried shredded squid. Is that right?

    Confession time:

    Tried Primo beer. That was the nastiest stuff in a bottle. I'm calling it Chemo beer from now on.

    ...and now that this thread has increased by one more page, it's safe for me to open it at home again, without fear that the AF will be looking over my shoulder as the earlier arachnid photos come up. She would have FREAKED (and not in a good way).

    Really? Shucks. I think it's pretty darned AWESOME!

    It's similar to one of Kona Brew's blend, but I can't pinpoint which one. I think the Lilikoi Ale, although the new Primo is a lager. My only complaint about the new Primo is the price, which runs around the $10 range for a 6-pack.

    Jim, yes, that's exactly what Tako and Ika is. In fact, Auntie and I had a little debate going not long ago on Squid vs. Octopus Luau. lol That was fun.

    Dried Ika and Tako (origin: Japan) is very popular in the islands as a pupu (appetizer).

    Glad you folks like the Sunset shot. That was quite an epic "Kodak" moment. The sky was on fire.

    Here's some smoked squid rings from Tamura's...


    OMG... these are like DA' BOMB!

    And here's Ika...



    I think one of the coolest things about Primo Beer is their logo. Check out the WAY COOL cap on the new bottles!...



    I think that's what I'm gonna' do for this year's Halloween. I'm gonna' paint my face blue and black, and make a warrior hat and chest piece like the "Primo Beer Warrior" dude. Carry around a couple of faux Primo Beer 6-packs. He he.

    Went to the very back of Ka'a'awa Valley today with a buddy!
    lost virtual tour

    First photo: We hiked to a short distance above where both valley ridges meet and start up the tallest point...


    Second photo: Looking back out the valley from above...

    Also from 6/22! at the back of Ka'a'awa Valley.
    We ate the red mountain apples. Awesome!


    And some pretty flowers along the way.


    Have to admit I'm pretty beat up and sore this mornin'

    Menehune Man, awesome hike and pics! How far do you estimate it is to where you walked? It doesn't look like there's anything manmade in that valley. Are there cattle back in there?

    Pomai, that shot of Primo bottle cap would make a great promotional ad. Cool perspective.

    We drove all the way to the back of the valley. That was the easy part...
    then hiked up to the left side ridge line, to the top where both ridges meet, and up some more! Mostly on pig trails. But really not far, just difficult.

    Only man made things are fences for the cattle and movie set items still in place.

    Photo taken from where we started at the small shelter. Made it almost to the pointy spot up there!


    Photo of shelter and car from top of first ridge line.


    And a Google Earth image of where we made it to!


    We could see Hakipuu/Kaneohe Bay to the left(in photos, would've been our right) and to the Kahana valley back on the other. WOW!

    Was out in the yard this weekend and spotted this little guy. The colors were so cool I had to take some shots of it. After some research, I've discovered that it's a False Colorado Potato Beetle.

    I will stay overnight in this little cave along Makapuu's coast sometime!

    It's high enough so no worries of tides and it even has a natural bed too.
    Not a long hike so I could carry in everything I need.
    Will let you know after it happens...

    Yep. Beautiful indeed! You picked a perfect day for that, with the ocean being so flat.
    And I think you were testing us. Do I get a cookie for noticing that the correct spelling should be Humuhumunukunukuapua'a?
    (There's a fish with an even longer name, but I've forgotten what it is.)

    Menehune Man, love the shots of Kaa'awa valley. Especially the one looking out.

    That Google Earth topographical image is great as well. Gotta' love G.E.!

    Solo mission on a sunny day (this past Saturday)...



    Playing around at the shore break...

    Choice shots... Pomai!

    My wife used to care for an elderly gentleman at his place,
    along the Gold Coast there. I could/would hang out with Felix and her.

    He was cool... thanks for jogging a memory.
