Last week Barack Obama returned to Oahu for a short vacation. One day he came out to the Halona Coast. Stopping at the Blow Hole to remember his mother before catching a few waves at Sandys. Obama catches some waves at Sandys on Hawaii vacation | HonoluluAdvertiser.com | The Honolulu Advertiser.

Just up from the Blow Hole is Halona Point. A favorite fishing spot for local fisherman. It can also be a dangerous place for fisherman who don’t pay attention for large waves that can suddenly appear and sweep them away. In recognition of that possibility the fisherman placed a small statue of a deity at the top of the cliff. The fisherman leave offerings before climbing down to the fishing spot.
