Travel Theme: Yellow

16 - Hawaii Barge at PCC100_6857100_7549When I think of yellow, I’m often reminded of the beautiful flowers of Hawaii.

The state flower is the yellow Hibiscus, and its image is everywhere. But when we were there, we saw many other golden views, too.

At the Polynesian Cultural center, the costumes on the float representing the Hawaiian Islands reflected the yellow and red robes and helmets worn by King Kamehameha and other rulers.

A Waikiki sunset gave us one of many other golden memories of Hawai’i.  Today, looking out my window at home in New England, everything is blanketed in white, and the temperatures are frigid.

A little tropical paradise would be nice, right about now!

    The first thing that my son wanted to see when we went to Hawaii was a hibiscus. I can’t wait to go again, thanks for the memories

    I really like that ceremonial shot TRS – do you know what it was? Was it a show?


    • The Polynesian Cultural Center (opposite side of Oahu from Honolulu) has pavilions for all of the island groups in Polynesia. Toward the end of each day, they float barges down a canal – one for each island group (Tonga, Samoa, Hawai’i, etc.) – and this was the one for Hawai’i. Later each evening they do luaus. They also had a poi making demo, and many crafts, shells, etc. for the region. Students from the Hawaiian campus of BYU are the “players.” If I remember correctly, they get scholarships for participation. An interesting place!
