Social Gatherings

The COVID pandemic has impacted us all. Everyone has a story. To make the best of the situation, my friends and I meet up weekly for おちゃ “ocha” (afternoon tea) and おひる “ohiru” (lunch outings.) This gives me something to look forward to…

We have found picnicking to be most enjoyable and relaxing. Good food, great friends, and Hawaii’s beautiful nature & weather make for a perfect day. There are really nice beach parks, mountain parks, and botanical gardens to visit. And buying takeout helps to support the local restaurant scene.

In these difficult times, it is important to take care of ourselves by doing positive and healthy activities. And in these difficult times, you can still have the happiest of memories.
