Please double click to get the detail of the second layer of leaf on this hibiscus.  I don't think I have ever come across a variety like this yet.  Enjoy!

Still in Halawa Heights and going higher and higher!  I still have a ways to go, but I'm trying to get all the side streets too!  Although it doesn't look like I went far, I did do quite a lot of backtracking which doubled the distance.  Today's total of 4.24 miles was full of construction workers from contractors working on the homes up here.

Proof is in the pudding, I always say, and here is one of the sights I saw scouring the neighborhood up in the heights.  Actually, you could see most of Pearl Harbor from here as well as the entire Waianae mountain range.

Believe it or not, there is a Market up here in the "Heights!"  Mostly alcohol beverages and lots of pornographic DVDs and magazines.  I was all embarrassed checking out what the store sold.  Yes, there was a smattering of personal hygiene products and some food, but not much.
Don't go past the bushes!  This driveway perches along the ridgeline and its a long and steep way down.  The good thing is an unobstructed view of the Leeward side of the Island.

I was really scratching my head trying to figure out the purpose of this structure.  Is it a tree house?  Or was it a Gazebo?  All I know is that it is a "bush house" now!  President 41 and 43 can come and visit it!  HaHa!

Something that I remember my mother telling me to do!  Why here and set in the sidewalk?

Because nearby is an elementary school!  Yes, way up here in the heights!  My only question the children look on the ground while they are walking?  That would be the only way they would see it.  Well, I guess that they are a lot shorter than I am, so they're closer to it!

Usually, you don't see Ford Island in its totality, but from here you can.  The bridge leads you to the Island and only Military and DoD employees can travel on the Island.  It used to have an operating airplane runway, but now its mostly military housing.

I loved the abundant show of color these bougainvillea plants displayed on my walk today.  I hope that all things good are abundant in your life!  A Hui Hou!(Until we meet again!)
