  •  Is Pray For Sex rock still there? (7+ / 0-)

    I lived on Oahu for 2 years in the 70s, have been back at leats a dozen times since.
    There used to be a SCUBA diving spot near a big rock out at Kaena that had "Pray for Sex" spray painted on it. This went into the lexicon-
    "where you go diving bra?"
    "Pray for Sex!"
    There was a well known reef shark there known as Makua Charley

    I guess you don't know about the railroad that used to run out there because you don't mention it. There used to be a railroad starting in downtown that ran to Waenae side, then around Kaena, then to Haleiwa, past Waimea and way past Kahuku. Didn't go all the way round.
    You can see the embankment for much of this around KAena Point and running along Mokuleia. They used to stop passenger trains here and let people take pictures.
    They built a secret link (no fooling!) from Wahiawa to Haleiwa during WWII.
    they took this railroad out in 1946 but there's still traces of it

    Happy just to be alive
