Forrest Gump Was Here

Photograph taken on 7/25/11 at the top of Koko Head.  The marina on the left center of the photo is the Wailupe Beach Park and just above it, in the distance is Waikiki. Visitors to Koko Head left several messages in its abandoned bunkers including this quote from the movie Forrest Gump that reads "Life is like a box of chocolate.  You never know what you're gonna get." and another one that reads "Hi Life".   If I had a Sharpie pen with me, I would have written something alongside that quote like "Life is like a can of macadamia nuts.  You need to savor each piece; if you don't, next thing you know, you got an empty can because it goes pretty quick." Hawaii always gets me centered and focused on the right things in life.
