III: Odds and Ends in the North


When my dad and I returned to Oahu at the end of our journey, we repeated many of the things Kim and I had done earlier this summer. Other than that, we relaxed! There were tickets to go see Pearl Harbor, but that was missed due to the government shutdown. On our second full day, we ended up at Sunset Beach again, and returned to Haleiwa where we got some Matsumoto Shave Ice (seemingly the best on the island) and watched a stunning sunset.

Ice cream in the middle, shave ice and sugar syrup around that, and condensed milk on top. Heaven on Earth.

North Shore is well-known for having some of the roughest and biggest waves in the world. What shocks me most about “surfing culture,” is how young a lot of these surfers are. Granted, in October the waves were only several feet high at best, but many kids who didn’t look older than 9 or 10 were frequently out there on their own. It almost looked as if they learned to surf before they learned to walk.

Finally, a beautiful Haleiwa sunset to say goodbye to Oahu.

  1. Matsumoto Shave ice is colorful, must be a unique taste experience. Super sunset image especially the sunlight on both the top and bottom cloud structure. It’s good you and your dad were able to spend time together, especially among such beautiful locations!
