#83 of 90, Molokai Hoe Canoe Race

On the twelfth day of Christmas Molokai gave me;
Twelve paddlers paddling,
Eleven cowgirls racing,
Ten hula dancers,
Nine mules a waiting,
Eight home made signs,
Seven seals a sleeping,
Six fantails roosting,
Five rubbish trips,
Four ponds of fish,
Three Post-a-Nuts,
Two fighting roosters,
And one hot bread in a shabby alley. 

The Molokai Hoe is one mean canoe race, 40 miles of open ocean from Hale o Lono on Molokai to Oahu. Hundreds of boats and paddlers show up once a year, making Molokai one of the fittest places on earth, for a weekend. It's quite fun, from a visual perspective as well.
