North Shore gridlock


    An irate passenger yelled at pedestrians crossing Kamehameha Highway on Friday, slowing traffic to a crawl as they made their way to Laniakea Beach. At top, the shore was crowded with people drawn by the sea turtles that frequent the beach.

    Laniakea Beach, often called "Turtle Beach," is favored by sea turtles for its natural protection from sharks, and by swimmers and beachgoers who hope for a close-up turtle encounter.

They stayed in the water near the shore which attracted a big crowd o f people trying to see them. PHOTO BY DENNIS ODA. PHOTO BY DENNIS ODA. AUG. 23, 2013.
