Shifting Sands...


World famous Waikiki Beach is getting smaller and smaller. The city pumps sand back onto the beach from offshore. But it often has seaweed and other detritus in it and gets smelly. Also, the surfers get upset because a lot of their comrades end up getting their ashes scattered off Waikiki and then pumped back on shore. They used to bring in sand from other sand dunes on O'ahu, Maui and Molokai. With that sand came the bones of my ancestors. Scattered about while the unknowing tourists lay around on top and amongst them. Now the ocean will be rising and the sand will disappear quicker. What a mess...
