Kaua‘i Represented At Hall of Honor

They have both shown they are more than capable of going the distance.

Curb Appeal

The other weekend, the Nagasawas decided to head into Waikiki to watch the King Kamehameha Day Parade. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that, as most of the parades I attend are in Wahiawa, like the Christmas parade or the Veteran’s Day parade.
