Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!  Here’s my palm tree ‘Trio’ for the photo challenge.  And also some random, Hawaiian miscellany:

  1. I thought it was interesting to learn about some Hawaiian mythology…like the Menehune.
  2. I didn’t know Kauai’s Na Pali coast was on National Geographic’s ’50 places of a lifetime’ locations.  It was rainy and foggy the day we sailed past this coast, so my pics aren’t the greatest.  But that’s the type of weather you get in a rain forest, right?
  3. I enjoyed learning how the black sand beaches are formed; and I don’t think I had even heard of the green sand beach.  Also, I didn’t realize that Hawaii’s white sand beaches are actually made from parrotfish poop.  (Not sure I wanted to know, either!)

Explanation of collage pics:  Dancers on the Polynesian Cultural Center’s boat parade; My toes in the front of my kayak as I paddled down a river on Kauai;  The octopus our snorkeling guide rounded up to show us.

Have a great day. Do or learn something NEW!

One thought on “Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

  1. Just returned from a few days in Hawaii, including Kauai. Such a beautiful island. We stayed on the north coast and the surf was so bad the tour boats for the Na Pali Coast weren’t operating from the north. I’m glad I didn’t know about the parrot fish poop. 🙂
