leiAloha in Hawaiian means affection, love, peace, compassion and mercy. Since the middle of the 19th century, it also has come to be used as a greeting to say goodbye and hello.

Hawaii was annexed to the USA on July 7th, 1898 – ah, our glorious colonial past! – and became the 50th state in August 1959. What a catch it was: Pineapple and macadamia nuts, coffee beans and bananas, hibiscus and anthurium, ginger and sandlewood.

Native life arrived here by the 3 W’s: the wind, the waves and the wings of birds and insects, resulting in a vast array of flora and fauna. Hawaii is said to have more endangered species per square mile and to have lost a higher percentage of its species than any other place on Earth.

Volcanoes drip lava into the ocean. Is it a wonder, then, that Hawaii  has legends of rocks that give birth to rocks?

I hear the food’s good, too … 😉

Surf’s up … 8-0

Get me a ticket, please. Aloha, Hawaii!
