Nice pics.

Question though:

I notice that behind King Kamehameha it says "Seasons Greetings". Did you not take any pics of the Christmas display near there in front of Honolulu Hale?

Great pictures, thanks for sharing them. Looking forward to my visit in September.

Have never managed to find Turtle Beach, perhaps I'll be luck this time.
