Looking for 'old' Hawaii

Not too much these days but I found a glimpse of old Hawaii in Waikiki.
I love the lush gardens especially.

Hi Lilla,

It's sad to think you have to really look for the relics of the history of the Hawaiian people, but like all civilizations there is a past, and so the new generations will then build their own history over the preceding one.

I think that we sould always honor our past and remember it in either stories handed down or even through the Arts. We love making things that resemble the past and in our own way we are helping to keep the history and beauty of the past alive.

My step-son is a Navy man and his sub is in Hawaii right now. He will be honoring the past this weekend when he has some furlough. He and his sub mates will be visiting the "Arizona"!

Wishing You a wonderful weekend!

So beautiful, I hope to make it to your island one day.

You've captured it well in your photos.

Have a great weekend.

I love the wonderful lushness of green with the tropical flowers.
The beautiful wooden carving in the second photos is not unlike our Maori carvings - makes you feel at home!!
Thank you for showing us these photos Lilla - I love it when bloggers do posts with photos of their particular neck of the woods.
Sometimes it's enough to make me hop on a plane and see it for myself - if only I could hop on a plane and see Hawaii - one day maybe!
