Our local friends had been driving us along the shore of Oahu's windward side, stopping along different sights, parks and beaches along the way. We pulled over across the street from the Crouching Lion Inn, asking if we wanted to see it.

My two friends from the mainland and I looked at each other, shrugged. Nah.

"You sure?" Vanessa asked us. "You don't want to take any pictures or anything?"

Sarcastically, I poked my camera out the window and snapped. "Got it. Let's go."

I'm still not sure who's stacking rocks all over, and why.

Leaky Holga with Agfa RSX II 200 ISO expired slide film, cross-processed, and sarcasm. And it turned out as one of the best shots from the trip! :O

    i would know this coast line anywhere-i do love my island. not born and raised but i have lived there for the past 3 years. im not entirely sure of the story behind these rocks but rocks that are standing up usually have some sort of offering behind them, or when rocks are standing its a male sign...flat rocks laying down are a female sign there is a lot of balance in the hawaiian culture. i love little things like this.
