75th anniversary of the end of World War II, 8/30/2020

We came here specifically to see the historic war planes fly over. Apparently this was not the spot, although it looked like it would fly over - according to a map with the path and times. This was a 2 day event.

We only saw one plane.

This is the other side of the boulder.

I did this video because I felt single photos would not capture what I was seeing.

Not sure why only 1 plane flew by and about 20 minutes later it came back.

Lunch anyone? We went to Fumi's Kahuku Shrimp Farm. I had this butter garlic shrimp, Gary had their spicy garlic shrimp.

This portable step stool is from City Mill.

What? Another plane at 11:36

We decided it may take 1/2 hour to come back. With these portable step stools, we found a place to enjoy shave ice.

Just about 12:06,  it came back.


Here are Gary's photos

Yup, just one war plane.

At Fumi's, these coots caught Gary's interest while waiting for the plane to come back as I had mentioned in my section.

Yay a second one.

Although we had wish to see all 12 of them, it was good getting out safely during this "stay at home" time.
