    Well I will mention it to the Boss and we will contemplate if we want to take the bus ride. The Bishop Museum is in the area too I think, and we never have visited that either. Many thanks for the great suggestions.

    no worries, Merlin666.

    looking forward to meeting you... if can. No worries if it doesn't happen, so
    don't stress about it.

    Enjoy the Islands!

    is located just where the shops on the beach side end.

    the Kanikapila is held on Thurs and Sunday nights from 8-10. the leader is Leonard Jenkins and everyone
    is welcome... but you may be called on to 'pick a song'. Don't worry, just about any song will do, but if
    you have a Hawaiian song you want played and sung by the group, they will probably be able to comply

    if you go, please greet them for me.

    I don't always go because trying to catch the bus home after 10p means lots of waiting at the bus stops...
    or a long walk home in the dark

    if you do go, it's a lot of fun!~
    I walked down to the racks to check it out. And indeed Leonard put his uke in my hands and asked me to sing a song. Lol. What an awesome group. I am looking forward to going back. I really need to learn a few hula songs. Which ones would you consider the top 3 or 5 one needs to know? I have the big Hawaiian song book and a few small ones so it's mainly a matter of picking the right tunes to start.

    For the swap meet is Wednesday best or are Saturday or Sunday just as good?

    Uncle Roy, Iíd take the outdoor uke just cause itís different. You know you can play anything and make it sound good. Years ago you had some music files that went with your songs and I listened and played along to learn some of them.

    Our cruise is docking in Honolulu Monday the 25th. Of course thatís the day you leave to go home. We plan to stop by Kamaka (no tours on Monday), stop by HMS at the Salt, and Uber to KoAloha to see their new factory and have a tour.

    My biggest problem is which uke should I take, or maybe more than one would be a better choice?? Decisins, decisions.

    if you dock in the morning, please text me at (206-234-6972).

    I'll most likely start the day at The Makai Food Court at Ala Moana Shopping Center.
    I play for the lei makers who settle near Honolulu Cookie's kiosk and Cinnabon.

    My plane leaves around 1p I believe, so I'll probably need to leave around 10-11a,
    perhaps a bit earlier.

    Anyway, would love to make some kind of contact if possible!

    Have a wonderful Cruise and a great time in HNL!!

    Sounds good. We’ve been by the shopping center but never went inside. It’s huge! If we ate lunch in the food court would it be a short walk to the new KoAloha Factory for their 1 pm tour? Those neat murals on the sides of the buildings in the Salt were nice to see last year but we got sooo lost and I know the tour starts on time. We only needed to go about 2 blocks and we went at least 20.

    Yes very short walk couple of blocks. It is a bit tricky to find as the factory is accessed from parking lot behind.

    Sounds very doable as long as we walk the right direction. The old factory wasn’t easy to find either but took a taxi. Thanks.

    Yup! from The Makai Food Court to Koaloha is maybe a 15-20 minute walk including
    traffic lights, and so well worth the effort! if Pops is there, he is a great guy to meet!

    Hope to see you sometime although the window of opportunity appears so small... this time

    I'm looking forward to my flight on the 20th with about 5-6 days in Paradise!

    keep uke'in', everyone!

    PS Hawaiian Air is contacting me to bid on a First Class upgrade. I'm almost tempted to try,
    but I'd rather apply the bid to my next Outdoor Ukulele purchase... a Blue Tenor?
