Lunch With Nords Photo

We had a great lunch with Nords at the Hale Koa hotel in Waikiki (I had the mahi mahi and a few beers).

Yep, sure is. But I had to use Internet Explorer (and click on stop) instead of Firefox to get a nice long look at those faces. I'm sure there's a way to stop the gif in Firefox, but I don't know how to do it. :

Not sure about windows, but in Firefox on my mac, hitting ESC stopped the animation.

Nah, Al & his spouse were two tables over from where you & I sat!

Just in case someone feels obligated to spring for lunch after a surfing session, I'd rather be dining at a reasonable place instead of a hotspot that's charging Waikiki visitor's prices. (Next stop-- the Wailana Coffee House!) Besides the Koko Café is a lot easier than fighting the crowds at Duke's...
