Hawaii - Waikiki Aquarium

Once again it rained during the night. The wind was also very strong with a forecast of strong winds continuing. Therefore it was decided to cancel play for the day as there is no shelter at the ground. We therefore had a free day so we decided to visit the Waikiki Aquarium in Kalakaua Avenue, a short distance from the hotel.
The Waikiki Aquarium was opened as the Honolulu Aquarium in March 1904. It is located close to the foreshore and the Marine National Park. Waikiki Aquarium is a small aquarium but the exhibits provide an excellent presentation of life in the waters around the islands. After exploring the exhibits inside the building we then visited the outside area.
The aquarium has two Hawaiian monk seals in their enclosure.
There are also exhibits of fish outside.
The aquarium was well worth the visit. The aquarium also has an informative website -

We then continued walking down Kalakaua Avenue to locate some Tudor style houses we had been told about.
The houses were designed in 1932 by the architect, Earl Williams.
This small group of houses form a picturesque street-scape.
