Thanksgiving Day highlights

I joined friends celebrating Thanksgiving Day at the Bird Park in Kau on the Big Island of Hawaii. I very much enjoyed the sunny day at the Park, which was off the beaten track amidst Koa and other native Hawaiian trees.

Here are some photos of the occasion

Little Jasmine welcomed my arrival. After I told her my name, she asked me if I'm really the "Little Mermaid."

We held hands and formed a circle. And then we prayed, acknowledging and thanking everyone and everything, including the trees, the sky, the birds, the ocean....

He obviously loved his whipped-cream topped pumpkin pie.
