    Default First Trip to Oahu

    Well, these were not taken here in Alaska and hope that you will bear with this fellow Alaskan as I share some images from a warmer climate. My first trip to the Islands a week ago and with a little exploration I was able to find some interesting subjects. Many sights I had never before seen and or photographed ...

    I encountered Mongoose in all parts of the Island.

    Default great captures

    I went to your photo share site and looked at those too..
    very nice..
    The orental work is very nice.
    the Mongoose are a good critter to have ove there.
    our neighbors yard is not landscape maintained,and is covered up in bushes and such that give great hiding places for the big Rats..
    once in a while we see a big rat at night walking the wall between our places. We keep our yard landscaped so as to not provide hiding places for the rats so they don't come over often and when they do , they leave right away...
    The Mongoose are great for keeping the rat population in check..
    I see a couple of Mongoose over in the nieghbors yard every day, and they look to be doing quite well..
    ..
    The pictures of the Roosters are great too..
    Oahu has quite a few chickens, but not many compared to the island of kaui,, that place is covered up in chickens...
    The old foundation is that located on the East side of the Island?
    What kind of parade were you attending?
    great movement shots on all the people and vehicles..
    great stuff Eddie..
    you have such a keen eye for interesting subjects.

    Thanks Dan! Had a pretty good time. Not a real fan of the touristy places but made the best of it. Was really pleased to find the Mongoose though. The car we had rented had a Garmin in it and was able to punch points of interest and off I'd go. The temples were pretty interesting though I had not even thought about checking them out. Amazing history and culture. Might try Costa Rica next time.

    Thanks Alaska! Yes, the foundation photos were taken on the east side. I really enjoyed that area a lot, fewer people!

    The parade was near the beach area in Waikiki. More of a local/business/commerce parade. Gave me a chance to try out the slow shutter stuff. Had fun with that! Thanks for looking at the rest of the images.

    I am thinking about taking the wife there myself. Had a good friend just get back from Costa Rica the other week. She was in Manuel Antonio. They flew into San Jose and drove a rental car 4 hours to Manuel Antonio. Very scenic drive from what she told me. Beautiful beaches and nice mountain scenery. The people were nice as well, so it would be considered a safe place from what I can gather. Lots of businesses in Manual Antonio were owned and operated by American tourist that decided to stay. I might negotiate something with the wife. She lets me take two float trips in Alaska in the same year, I take her to Costa Rica that winter. Something like that

    My brother once called me after his first week in Costa Rica to have me extend his flight out another four weeks. He took his backpack and rented a lock box for his extra cash in a city somewhere and just headed out only to return for money and food for his next trip out and about. The people were friendly and he was always welcomed to spend the night in the small houses out in the country. He would always leave five dollars for their trouble. He awoke one morning to find huge cat tracks just outside of his tent. A local Park Ranger(?) told him that it was a Jaguar and not to tell anyone because they wanted people to think that the big cats were extinct. He ate huge wild avocados everyday, observed a lot of wildlife, met some amazing people and minimal crime throughout. A really safe place to visit.

    Oh ya, you can drink the water!
