Waikiki is a place to let go.
Relax. Slow down. Breathe. Take it in.
Look around. Have fun. Enjoy.
Life is an adventure. Sun, sky, beach.
You are in the moment, be here now.
Sit on a park bench far away from home.
Smile. Say hello to a stranger. Aloha.
(On July 31, 1843, Rear-Admiral Ricard Thomas raised the Hawaiian flag here following the willful political destruction of all Hawaiian flags. This act re-affirmed the independence and sovereignty of the Hawaiian kingdom. The site of that ceremony was named Thomas Square to honor the event.) Independence, sovereignty… pride.
