Aloha 'Aina Park at Hickam Air Force Base

Went for a walk along the bay. (Aloha 'Aina Park) Beautiful trees, flowers, birds. Saw what might be a mongoose. Picked up a grapefruit and something unknown - gonna cut it open!

The Missing Man Formation

"The missing man formation is a precious symbol in the United States Air Force tradition. In the soaring of the aircraft skyward, we honor our comrades who have been lost in battle. We remember them as true patriots who gave their last full measure of devotion to their country. We keep faith with their memory by standing ever ready in defense of the nation."

The Freedom Tree (discovered later to be the Hau tree - pronounced HOW)

Gnarly roots growing out of the bank of the bay

I can't remember the exact name, but it is some type of cardinal.

Officer housing along the bay

A memorial to all Air Force Medal of Honor receipients displays one of the best views of the channel.

The infamous Hawaiian red dirt. When I first saw it upon arrival at night, I thought the ground was wet. Much to my surprise in the morning, discovered it was actually red.

The unknown fruit we picked up yesterday was NOT edible. It was from a Sausage Tree.
