|Memorabilia from the Wo Hing Museum|
As we swam around the bay, with the pitter-patter of rain on our backs, we saw a few different fish, including the Hawaiian Damselfish. Finger, cauliflower and lobe coral were also in the waters. So, it was a good snorkel, in spite of the rain.

Strolling down the street, we found galleries handling the works of Picasso, Chagall, Erte and even Rembrandt. Finding a shop representing the works of Sir Anthony Hopkins, we were intrigued with the works of this multi-talented actor, painter and composer. Many of his pieces have garish colors and forms and seem as though they might have been created by his best-known character, Hannibal Lecter (from Silence of the Lambs.) However, he also paints tranquil landscape scenes. We capped off the day by purchasing one of his prints, Texas, a fiery red landscape of a farm.

We’ll be looking for calm seas and clear skies for the remainder of the week.
