Reunion With Great Friends

Eleven years ago by chance, I met dear friends on the north shore of Oahu. Since then we have reunited often, finding many beautiful adventures together.

This year after a quick tire repair and yummy malasada pastries, we returned to Haleiwa on Oahu’s north shore to enjoy some delicious huli huli chicken with pineapple coleslaw. After lunch we wandered down the road to enjoy shave ice at Matsumoto’s. It hit the spot on such a hot day.

On the way home, we explored Dole Plantation and enjoyed pineapple ice cream.

The next day we drove to Keaiwa Heiau and also to Izumo Shrine. Both were breath taking! After exploring the Chinese Cultural Plaza we went on to Ala Moana to meet up with a friend for lunch. While finding our way to the restaurant we happened to see sumo Grand Yokozuna, Konishiki!

Lunch was great and we discovered that we were all the same level of spinal cord injury. So we instantly formed Team C6!

When leaving the mall parking lot we accidently forgot a wheelchair sliding transfer board only to return several hours later to find it in the exact same spot in the parking stall. There is so much aloha in Hawaii.

It was so wonderful to visit again and am already looking forward to more adventures with my beautiful friends from across the sea. – Aloha
