    are the coconut trees. Here's a grove close to my home.

    Very beautiful and brightly colorful plants. They are a lot more bright and colorful than any of the plant life here in the Great Lakes Region.

    Is that shirt from H&M? haha

    My area is full of coconut trees. The local hawaiians go out and gather young, newly sprouted
    coconuts and make interesting drinks from them. I got a sample the other day and then he climbed
    up a huge tree barfoot and cut some coconuts that needed to be cut so they will not drop off and hurt anyone.
    Really cool to see how these guys are so amazingly athletic and can really be true hunters and gathers.

    Some Sad news!

    A big hit to Hawaii’s only island yet to record a case of COVID-19 was felt Monday, as 752 workers were furloughed by Four Seasons Resorts on Lanai.

    You've botched this expression before. It's "couldn't hold a candle to...."

    "The phrase can’t hold a candle to has its roots in the 1600s, when the lowly apprentice to a master of a craft might only be fit to hold a candle in order to provide light for the master while he tends to a problem. An apprentice who was not even skillful enough to hold a candle for his master was worthless, indeed."

    It's very diverse here and each Island that's apart of the sate is also unique. Hopefully,
    I can make it to Maui when the inter-Island quarantine is lifted. I might go for
    Halloween for a masquerade party, if It works out. lol What should I be? lol Miss Princess Piggy!! LOL
    The Big Island has over 15 of the 18 world climate zones so it's very different to the Caribbean. I live on
    the lower south east side, called the lower puna district and it's very Tropical, cool and lush. Lost of coconut
    trees and fragrant blooms that fill the night air with some very exotic and intoxicating scents. I will take
    a photo of one of the sweet smelling flowers so you guys can see it.

    Aloha!! Stay strong.

    Besides hot men do you know what Hawaii and Tahiti have in common......?
    Well, a rich polynesian culture and almost the same direction from the equator. Hawaii above-Tahiti Below.
    Tahiti is part of the islands known as French Polynesia.
    Tahiti is 11.090 miles below the equator. It is the same distance as Hawaii is above the equator.

    HAPPY ALOHA FRIDAY!!!

    This is the craziest GREEN sands beach I've ever seen. Since it was a big hike down,
    I had a local Jeep guy drive me down and I lost a kidney getting there....J/K
    It's the furthest south point of the USA!! SOUTH POINT BEACH!

    Here's a pic of some Giant Banana leaves. I have a small banana,
    mango & papaya grove. There are many farms around my area
    and they grow so much variety in the rich volcanic soil. It's amazing!
    My friends have a 70 acre banana farm and they grow the most delicious
    and flavorful organic avocados too.

    LOOKING UP!! at these Giants.
