Manana Island Watercolor by OLGA SHEVCHENKO
Manana Manana - (Rabbit Rabbit in Hawaiian)
It is the first of the month and so I wish everyone good luck in the month of July.
Manana Island is located on the Windward side of O'ahu, north of Makapu'u Point. The shape of the island actually resembles a rabbit but it was named Rabbit Island because rabbits actually live there after a rancher released the animals there. Today the island serves as a seabird sanctuary.
The Bear has been in Hawaii for the past month, caring for his busy 3 year old granddaughter. This has allowed his eldest pregnant daughter to maintain her mandatory bed rest, as she awaits the birth of her second child.
