East of Malaga offers an intriguing challenge for September, and so I again focus my lens on Hawaii, where repetition usually means colorful and fun. Usually….but not always.
My two selected blogs for this theme, I think are clever interpretations and so different—tires and beehive:
Hawaii is like no other place in the world. Spending time at the beach is commonplace for most residents. Both children and adults dance hula at every opportunity—at birthday parties, weddings, other special occasions or just while enjoying the aforementioned beach time. At any given moment, there are more unique, fun and (mostly) free activities and events than can fit into anyone’s busy schedule. Those of us who are lucky enough to live in Hawaii consider all this part of our everyday life.
In Hawaii, May 1 is Lei Day. A lei-making competition showcases amazing, intricate and stunning lei made from Hawaii’s beautiful flowers and ferns, artisans demonstrate the craft of lei making, vendors sell lei of all types, entertainers, well, entertain, and hula halau (schools) grace audiences with Hawaii’s traditional dance—the hula. Nothing is cuter than the keiki (children) showing us how it’s done, as this 3-year-old demonstrates.
