Haleiwa

A trip with the family to historic Haleiwa town on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii. It's a beautiful place somewhat clogged with tourist traffic. The key draw for many is shave ice, with Matsumoto's being the quintessential destination. My wife and I prefer Aoki's, just a few yards down the street, where the ice is finer and the lines are shorter. Music is "FastCars" from Plethora by MRDC (Magnatune/CC:BY-NC-SA). You can directly download the above Quicktime movie (.MOV) file or a larger version (320x240/90MB) here, courtesy the Internet Archive.

Yvette & Keola

Back in July, my daughter and I were invited out to Dillingham Estate to watch my friend Yvette Fernandez marry the love of her life, Keola Kama. Here are a few of the video clips I collected alongside the stills I took of the beautiful proceedings.
