Duke Kahanamoku's Lagoon

I got up early enough to take this picture at dawn during our July trip.  The lagoon sits just outside the Hilton Hawaiian Village and is a great place to learn how to surf paddle.  Place gets really crowded with tourists (like us) staying at the Hilton but there was quite a bit of locals just hanging out. Speaking of locals, they stage for surfing at a parking lot just to the right of the last coconut tree.  That is where I saw this trash bin with a really cool sticker (below). After watching the locals hit the surf, respect is only natural.  That is what Duke Kahanamoku, the father of surfing, would have wanted.
