I went to Makaha today after picking up lunch and having it on the beach
. The sun seemed to be streaming on me through a magnifying glass, especially on my left thigh. After sitting there and eating about 3/4ths of the roast pork plate, I had to move. I didn't want to give the sun any information, even though the torture was unbearable.
I saw a pretty cool thing while I was eating. An older local guy pulled up in his truck and took his board out. A homeless bearded young white guy wearing too-big and dirty black shorts said something to him. The local guy said, "Yeah, sure, hold on bruddah." And he dug in this truck and gave him a cigarette. He also gave him a lighter to light it with. The homeless man was about to leave when the local guy said, "Hold on," and he dug in his lockable chest in the truck bed and retrieved a can of juice and a little cup of fruit cocktail and handed it to him. The man bowed and said thanks, then headed across the street to the public restroom. I shrugged and thought I should have not thrown that pack of cigarettes out 15 years ago when I quit smoking.
I moved down a few spaces to a spot behind a picnic table. There I saw a Hawaiian man sitting at the table watching the surfers like I did. I got out of my car and sat on the other end of the table on the front part and started taking pictures. We exchanged greetings: "howzit" I said, "howzit, braddah," he said. The man kept laughing at the surfers who seemed to be not very good. I was too engrossed in what I was doing to start up a conversation.
After a few minutes, he got up and walked to a truck, meanwhile talking to people arriving about the surf. I decided that the surfers weren't really that good, so I left. I went into Tamura's and took a shot at the "specials" menu because I love their roast pork. Guess I'll be there next Tuesday. I did a crappy job videotaping the menu. Should've used stills.

Oh yes, in the featured video below, I took lots of videos and pictures while I was there. I only liked the ones of the wahines
