The guys were waiting in their raft of trucks to weedwhack, mow, trim, and generally sharpen up the grass in Sandy Beach Park when I arrived this morning.   I got engrossed with picture taking, but soon saw grass sprigs tumbling down the beach due to the strong winds.   Like this delicate plug with its Japanese katakana * shadow.
*  Katakana is a Japanese script used for writing words borrowed from other languages.
Found another 'singing pole' at the other end of the parking lot which really sounded beautiful due to the strong winds.

In the extra, ready, set, kick  . . . 

Morning newspaper headlines  :  ANTIBODY TESTING ON WAY
As Hawaii carefully considers reopening the economy, the first laboratory-based coronavirus antibody tests will begin Thursday to ascertain how many people have actually been infected in the islands.  It can be done by a finger prick and detects the most common type of antibody - immunoglobulin G (IgG) - that develops about two weeks after COVID-19 infection.   Typically people with antibodies have modest immunity for 18 months to three years.

And  :  Perfect time to study the bay (Hanauma Bay)
The preserve's closure has allowed University of Hawaii's marine lab to see whether human activity has a negative impact on fish and the reef.  Yes, seems obvious, but you've got to start with a baseline  . . .

A video system set up to let the public watch meetings of the Honolulu rail authority's board of directors failed Tuesday for the second time this month, but rail (HART-Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation) board members proceeded with their meetings anyway and voted to approve nearly $40 million in new rail project change orders and contracts.  
Gov. Ige signed a supplementary proclamation March 16 that suspended Hawaii's "Sunshine Law" mandating that boards and commissions conduct their business in public.

And, public and private golf courses might reopen as one category of low-risk businesses on Friday, with modifications.

Stay well, stay inside, and take care, everyone.
