Stories & Features at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort: Na Alii Walking Tour of WaikikiOne sunny, Saturday morning, I found myself standing at the foot of King David Kalakaua's statue in Waikiki with my Big Girl Camera hanging around my neck, an iPhone in my hand, and, perhaps, even, my waterproof point-and-shoot stashed in my backpack. On my face, I wore a blank stare. I did not see the kids with florescent pink and green inflatables wrapped around their mid-sections and waddling for the beach. I did not see the surfers with their boards balanced on their heads, their wet footprints drying on the hot pavement. I did not see the street performers acting as statues, the man with the five parrots, or the people handing out pamphlets for massages, meals and shooting ranges.
