Magic Island

Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. Inspired by yesterday's vlog by Roxanne of Beach Walks with Rox, I head down to Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park. Magic Island is a popular park for locals and visitors alike, with wide open spaces, lots of shade, placid waters, and a great view of Waikiki and Diamond Head. This week, though, the park has been taken over for the Honolulu Centennial Celebration, rescheduled to this weekend after recent heavy rains and flooding postponed just about everything in Hawaii. As crews set up for the festivities, a few people enjoy the park, and several Japanese couples take their Hawaii wedding photos. Enjoy, but don't go in the water.

Extra special thanks to Wilfred N and the Grown Men for providing the music for today's video. The song, "I Never Get Tired of You," can be found on their album, Waiting for Luck To Come, available online.

You can also view this video at YouTube, Blip.TV, or Google Video. Directly download the above Quicktime movie (.MOV) file, a larger version (320x240/158MB), or the iPod-optimized file (MP4/21MB) here, courtesy the Internet Archive. The MP4 served up in the feed is here.

Hey, guess we can't keep you inside now Ryan. Considerably more activity there today; we had a wedding yesterday too. Imagine a vlogger at Magic Island every day?
