Joanie B. loved the rainbow shave ice on North Shore. 
Iced coconuts, rayban sunglasses and lots of sunscreen 
were a must for her and her friend.

Alice and Joanie B. caught a rainbow over Honolulu --
from a PENTHOUSE par-tee.


Joanie B. was so inspired by the beach in Kailua
(former home to President Obama) that she wrote a poem:

Koo Ka Roo Ka Kailua
by Joanie B.

The breaking aqua waves
Splashing the white sand
where the clucking and peeping
of little chicks
In pools they make in the sand--
tiny chickie feet dig and dig
Brown little beaks dotted sandy wet
The water reaches them
Rolling Into their nest in the beach
And plays upon their peeps
Slips away
Splashes back
And so the day is crowing
Koo Ka Roo Ka Kailua!

Alice and Joanie B. - the ever ready library-hens -- pulled plenty of resources from the SCCLD libraries' shelves to plan their trip ahead of time - for a flawless "vacay" indeed!
