|A day at Ala Moana shopping center. It means "path to the sea" in Hawaiian.|
We could see the unusual cantilevered roof from the parking lot at the Ala Moana Mall. I couldn't find info on the design, but to me it looks like an ocean wave as it crests.
Several koi ponds lined with lava rock walls and garden landscaping run the length of the open air main floor level of the mall.
Every day during the holiday season there is a free hula show at Centerstage in the Mall. It only lasted for 20 minutes, during which they presented 5 different dances. We missed the first two. I had to sketch quickly while the dancers turned and moved in every direction! I finally resorted to getting what I could of their costumes.
BTW, this will be the last consecutive calendar date for the next 20 years! 12/13/14
