Curiosity: forget “Cherchez la femme” (Look for the woman.) “Cherchez l’histoire.” (Look for the story.)
We arrived home late on New Year’s Eve, turning our attention to even younger grandchildren: the almost two-year-old twins in Honolulu, staying at the same VRBO as last year—within easy range of their house, Kahala beach, the Makapu lighthouse trail, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the north shore, and Kealia Trail.
We joined them first at the Outrigger Club. The boys look ready to surf.
The next day, we met at Kahala Resort, where beach and viewing of pools at the resort are open to the public. Swimming with the dolphins is an expensive treat, but watching them isn’t.
Nor is watching turtles at feeding time. We learned that the resort works with, I think, the Turtle Restoration Network. The resort takes in young turtles and raises them until they reach 100 lbs., at which point they’re released into the ocean. I didn’t learn about specific arrangements for the dolphins, though I’d guess they’re similar. In any event, the boys were equally fascinated.
