An early start to our first day in Hawaii produced many shadows

Deep shade in front of the Iolani Palace as the sun is on the far side.

Our friends Kay and Art told us they had never seen the palace decorated like this.
We admired the shadowy trees around the palace, but forgot to ask their names. There were palms, of course, and banyan trees, and monkeypod trees, but I can't identify them, even after Googling.

That is one inviting climate! We're expecting a blizzard out East on the Boston coast. Nothing really horrible predicted for our western region here in Massachusetts.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Peace,
