Hawaii... Same Same But Different

Here are a few pictures of some of the interesting things that we saw while on our Hawaii 2014 trip!

This is the Wiki Wiki shuttle bus at the Honolulu airport. We hopped aboard at the main terminal & it brought us to the inter island terminal to catch our flight to the Big Island. I just love its name, the Wiki Wiki!

The license plate of our rental car... ZAM!

This was a little store that we drove by on the way to Akaka Falls. It was closed so we didn't get to go there but we all just absolutely loved the name. Same Same But Different! That ended up being our motto for the rest of the trip, everything was the same same but different!

 We saw this car parked at the King's Shops. It had a million bumper stickers on it & I just had to take a picture since it has the best bumper sticker ever, I Love Giraffes!

We saw lots of cool vegetation on the island such as...
these beautiful plumeria flowers that were growing everywhere!

palm tree roots, which apparently grow above the ground instead of below

more above ground roots, but on a different kind of palm tree

And this bush at A Bay that has names & dates & messages etched into the leaves.

We also saw lots of fun signs. 
Like this one... Beware of falling coconuts!

And this one... If in doubt, don't go out! 
This was at Lapakahi State Park where the water was ROUGH! And while we were there, a man & woman walked down to the water, put on their snorkeling gear & went out. I was a little scared for them, but apparently, they had no doubt because they went out!

This one was at the Lava Lava Beach Club

And so were all these fun beach signs.

This was a handicap parking sign that someone decorated with an interesting sticker!

And this was one of several signs regarding the feral cats that roam the island!

This little area by the Lava Lava Beach Club not only had a sign, but it also had little hut houses for the cats. If you look closely, you can just barely make out a cat laying under it.

We saw several of the feral cats around the island & they all seemed to be clean & well taken care of so the Advocats must be doing their job!

And here are some things I saw while shopping...

An ABC Stores shirt

A really cool shell ring

My name in Hawaiian!

And Addy's name too!

Hi Chew candy, YUM!

Shrimp Chips... Eww, that just sound disgusting!

These awesome lighters! Anyone know who the dog on the orange lighter is supposed to be?

Glass ball Christmas ornaments that are hand painted on the inside. Now that's talent!

And last but not least, spam flavored macadamia nuts! And again, ewww!
