Aloha from Hawaii
Visiting my family for a week. Here is a cool set of replica Hawaiian edged weapons. One is ringed with Tiger shark teeth and the other has a Billfish bill for a spear tip.
This is a nice spear; this one with a large Marlin bill for a spear point.
Stopped in Shirokiya for lunch and had to get this gratuitous photo - I think the Sengoku armor is authentic. The metal plates had what appeared to be remnants of a leather facing.
My other car's a tank. This is in front of the museum at Battery Randolph in Waikiki.
Honolulu Geek Central - the infamous "Other Realms"
Don't worry this was just the first morning, I did get out to see the waves at Diamond Head. My old stomping grounds.
Heading out to a niece's birthday now - also another birthday on Sunday at Magic Island. One plus for not living here anymore is missing all the gatherings of relatives - almost every week!
