When traversing the Ahini Kinau Reserve, we stumbled across two memorial sites marked by crosses and a surfboard. Two surfers that died in a surfing accident in the waters off of the reserve.

rhythmic blue water
dances a siren's song
tempting mere mortals

It is a life lesson. When we think we are strong, we are weak. When we rely on ourselves, we are foolish. When we are invincible, we are defeated.

    This is the most incredibly beautiful, wistful, and honorable memorial to those dying in action nearby I have ever seen. Thanks so much for sharing. Yes, just when we think we are demigods, we prove ourselves only too human.
