TIN-MAN TRIATHALON

 

  • Hope all of you got a chance to catch the 30th annual Tin-Man Triathlon that happened this past Sunday on our Ohana Beach Rental’s webcam.
  • It was an amazing world-class event and all the best athletes came out to compete including our own Kristin Counter who swam in the swimming portion of the race, a total of 800 meters.
  • The weather was perfect with sunshine and clear skies!
  • Our Webcam was able to get most of the action live in pristine video format.
  • Really a nice treat for visitors and residents alike who were competing or not.

 

 

FIRST FRIDAY ON AUGUST  6th

  • I have to say it’s just been another amazing summer in Hawaii! The months are flying by so fast. I can’t believe it’s almost August!
  • One of the perks about the beginning of a new month in Hawaii is of course First Fridays in Downtown China Town.
  • It’s an amazing monthly gathering in the heart of Honolulu. Art galleries feature new art exhibits and artists.
  • There are amazing street performers, live music, happy hour specials, body painting exhibits, comedy shows you name it.
  • It’s basically a block party for the entire downtown area! The Mardi Gras of Honolulu only we do it monthly.
  • If you’re ever in Hawaii on a first Friday you have to be sure you don’t miss it!

 

 

LAST FRIDAY – ART AFTER DARK

 

  • But look I’m already getting ahead of myself thinking about next months party I forgot about the one just around the corner…
  • There is actually a last Friday event every month as well, called Art After Dark at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
  • This Friday they will be featuring the “Plaza De Toros” an ode to Pamplona, Spain’s running of the bulls!
  • There will be Spanish cuisine from top local chefs, live Spanish inspired music as well as the art galleries themselves for you to peruse at your own discretion.
  • In Hawaii I guess you can say that we end things with a bang and we begin things a bang!
