Haiku Poem – オアフ島の顔

a beacon to all
Diamond Head’s face
guarding the ocean

(Jim Woodhull)
ボート から ダイヤモンド ヘッド みちしるべ

Diamond Head is one of the most recognizable spots in Oahu and also in the state of Hawaii. It is one of the most popular spots for tourists and locals alike as it is very easy to climb, a slow round trip takes about 1.5 hours and there are stairs that go all the way to the top. I am very fortunate in that I get a completely different view of Diamond Head from the boat as compared to the usual views taken from the beach. The usual pictures of Diamond Head are taken from the side but I sometimes can look at it directly from the front which is a spectacular view!
