On the way back home, I stopped near the Diamond Head Light House to reflect on the day's events. The area around Diamond Head is dry this year. Some years it is a beautiful green color, but it is currently a barren brown color.
The brush would not allow an unobstructed view of the light house and ocean, so this was the best image I could grab. Notice that this light house is on the leeward side of the island of Oahu. The trade winds hit the other side of the island and the warmth of the land causes some clouds to build in the mountains. This explains why the clouds do not extend out over the ocean.

It was very interesting hearing the steel drums. It brought back memories from my youth growing up in the Virgin Islands. Ha! They actual had a steel band from the mainland. I watched the drum maker on St. Thomas, USVI bang out the drums. He would actually tune them by banging the areas of the drum. They are made out of fifty-five gallon drums. What a great way to recycle.
Here are some onlookers.
A beautiful morning looking towards the Royal Hawaiian and Hilton Hotels.
One guy decided to flip himself off of the pier at Kapahulu.
