A TRULY VIRTUAL WEB ART MUSEUM

A run-with-me virtual opportunity to imagine yourself running the 26.2 marathon.  
On foot you see much more than when you do the route by car. Come run with me!

Waialua Libray with kiddies' reading program

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Town's community outdoor pavilion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ah, Country Living - love the color scheme

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Agricultural roots

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Great early morn volunteers.  They had to get up early too for this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday Mass

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leaving town

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And its past....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A rare decline; but most of it is flat and sea level

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under only bridge, will pass under once more on the way back. Towards Mokuleia, not Wahiawa (to the left)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now up this incline along the high school; some returning from the neighborhood loop; turning left on the right side of this picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those of the right are coming back out of this loop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8th in a residential Waialua neighborhood, close to the high school

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A loop in the loop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Former plantation houses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So beautiful, a striking example of the 50's , local style

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A turn in the loop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always turning right

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Neighbors like these should be considered Living Treasures of the community

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well... it all sorta blends in together

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another right, but first, a drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cheerleaders!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of them offer to take my picture, after I asked for theirs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She even proposed to toast the moment!  Which, of course, I just couldn't refuse.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder how many years it saw come and go before this part of the tree moved on itself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Definitely a uniquely shared lifestyle by the neighbors living on these streets.  Crooked white line indicates it gets hot here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Picture Perfect.  A lacy white wooden frame would be cute.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Composition in Signs and Metal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coming out of the loop and back to along the front of the high school

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's hot and dry here, with wind blown dry reddish-brown dirt coating the pavement,  a never-ending reminder of its former plantation days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Niner in front of the school

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nice art on a classroom wall.  Love how it works with the chain link and plumbing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Along long, long highway - The loop - to Kaena Point, the eastern pointed tip of the shape of Oahu island.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Great outdoor open space.... but this could get boring over the miles....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An artistic landscape for the passing marathoner's delight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next to the previous one

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only 16 to go!  Keep running to the vanishing point

 

 

DON'T STOP NOW,  EVEN IF YOU FEEL LEG CRAMPS COMING ON
