Ala Moana Beach Park & Diamond Head Honolulu 1975

Ala Moana Beach Park and Diamond Head 1975
A weekly image from my archive. Click on the image to make it larger.

Another beautiful day in paradise and while the skyline has changed considerably Honolulu is still a great town. Just left of center in this photo is the Illikai hotel with its revolving restaurant on top. About five years ago, the hotel had a major renovation and added time shares. One of my ex-colleagues from Bowker owns one. In the distance is Diamond Head (never any diamonds) around which I have run many times although I only lived in Honolulu briefly in the summer 1982. The Honolulu marathon goes around the edges of that going out and coming back. Makes it rather challenging.
