Hawaii scenery

These beautiful dolphins are sculptures outside one of the most famous art galleries in Honolulu. Hang onto your wallet if you walk in. I can never walk into an art gallery with my purse in hand.

These photos are of the National Cemetery on Oahu. I didn't know such a place existed but it's one of the largest military cemeteries outside of Arlington in D.C. There are thousands of military members buried here from WWII and the Korean War.

The graves are all marked with identical plaques in the ground. Several years ago various religions were protesting the white crosses marking the graves. To ease all the furor over "Christian" crosses, they were all removed.

The memorial is beautifully landscaped with incredible blooming trees. I would love to see it when everything is in full bloom.
