Starting and ending the day with rainbows

Today was my last day on vacation (if being away from home with two kids under five can be called a vacation). The day started and ended with rainbows. The late afternoon rainbow was actually a double-rainbow, and so vibrant that it seemed tangible.

It had been ages since I last visited Hanauma Bay. Used to be, you'd buy food at the beach and then hand feed fish right at the water's edge. Now, there's wind and solar powered street lights (those things hanging down were turning with the wind), and a solar-powered trash compacting garbage can. You also have to watch a nine-minute movie about reef preservation before they'll allow you step on the beach.

Also, I passed a repo store with a bear in the window.
