One of our favorite island events are the rodeos that take place around Hawai’i.  Always patriotic and a huge family event where ranchers come to compete.  Hawai’i cowboys, and cowgirls, display remarkable talent and a unique understanding of managing the land and animals.

Wai ‘Opae is a quiet little vacation town on the Big Island, in the lower Puna district, along the Kapoho tide pools.  Wai ‘Opae means ‘water shrimp’, but in Hawaiian folklore, shrimp was considered ʻAumakua.  A type of family of gods that took the shape of many forms.   It can be a prayer before eating, or a request to hula.  In the context used here, it mostly likely means the shrimps that live in the tide pools.

It was a beautiful day with bright sun and puffy white clouds.  Later, after 3PM the trade winds brought in heavy clouds and rain has closed the evening sunset.

Happy Aloha Friday
