Art and I had a day of errands today driving into Waikiki to bring some things for my son-in-law who is here on business and then a bunch of this and thats. In between the morning this and the afternoon thats we decided to have a little picnic lunch at the Moanalua Gardens.
The monkeypod trees there are absolutely beautiful and we were glad we took the time to stroll about the park and just enjoy the respite.
That's when we noticed the beautiful koi pond with a flock of ducks swimming and meandering about. I hadn't seen ducks in Hawaii much so I couldn't help but take a bunch of pictures.
I was crouched down taking a photo when suddenly this little cherub came up behind me and actually stood on my feet and pressed her cheek almost against mine to see what I was taking a photo of. She chattered away asking and telling me what was on her mind. It reminded me so much of KC that I wanted to give her a hug but instead I just spoke to her as a teacher and made sure her parents knew where she was.
I loved watching the ducks swimming lazily over the gigantic, colorful koi right beneath them. They seemed completely oblivious to the huge fish directly below them.
After a while the ducks got into a row and marched about before climbing right back into the pond again at which time we had to continue on our way...
