This was taken on the quiet side of the hotel near the self parking. My son and I were waiting for hubby to get back from parking our car since we checked out but were still allowed to enjoy the hotels amazing pools for the day.
There is a Koi pond that runs along the walk way here as well as other parts of the hotel. Its so beautiful with the orchids lining it.
I took the opportunity to have a little Koi fish photoshoot while waiting for my husband.
And this one fish seemed to like to be photographed..he kept swimming closer to me.
Hi Mr. Koi fish!
Once many years ago I had to spend a 4 hour layover in Honolulu airport. My now 17 year old son was only 2. We went down to the center area where they have a beautiful Japanese garden and Koi fish. There was a peach colored Koi that followed us to all edges of that pond..and we would slap the pond water when we went to another side and that fish would swim on over like a dolphin to be right by us and it wanted to be pet! My son was giggling so much. That made our 4 hour layover much more enjoyable. I always wanted to go back there and see that fish again..but now it's been too long, I can't imagine that he'd still be alive. Then again, I'm not sure how long Koi live.
