Lace surf cap!

Her friends all look up to her, and think she's beautiful as she plays around in the surf.   The right side of the beach seemed to have bodysurfers and kids, and the left side had surfers with long boards.   At times, the waves came rolling in all the way across.

Morning newspaper headline  :  RESTRICTIONS EXTENDED
Gov Ige plans to extend Hawaii's "safer-at-home" order and 14-day quarantine for all out-of-state arrivals through June 30.   There are other businesses and activities that are medium-risk activities that we'll look at reopening, he says.   The governor listed examples of medium-risk businesses as restaurant dining rooms, hair salons, and barbershops.   However, large gatherings which are considered high-risk activities will not be allowed anytime soon.

And :  Mayor Caldwell allows limited use of parks, religious activities
Caldwell says he will allow a limited use of outdoor sports fields and courts as well as drive-in religious services to open today (Friday).   What is being dubbed the Ho'ouli Honolulu (Restore Honolulu) 2.0 Order was given pre-approval by the governor, the mayor says.   
The new emergency order allows for one-on-one sports and exercise activities where "it is both possible and reasonable" for participants to maintain 6-feet of physical distance, including singles tennis, singles pickleball, yoga, and tai chi.   Participants also would be required to wear nonmedical-grade face coverings.   Caldwell doesn't anticipate spectator sports or even youth league activities to reopen anytime soon.

And  :  Officials pass the blame for restriction flaws
Let the sniping begin.
Hawaii's plan for economic and community recovery and resilience hinges on collaboration, but city and state leaders are still fighting over who is to blame for loopholes in the mandatory 14-day self-quarantine for incoming passengers.    (Making it front page news shows just how bad the non-cooperation is.)

Stay well, keep your sense of humor active, and take care, everyone.
