Like, dude, this is some kind of hippy tree, yeah?
I liked these shapes I saw on the surface of the water in one of the Mauna Lani fishponds on the South Kohala coast.
A couple of days ago, my wife called to alert me to the presence of this truck in Hawi, so I scurried over there and took some photos.
The message was on both sides of the board, but what was it there for? Were they upset with one of the stores, but which one? Was it a court ordered sign for a terrible driver? Was the truck several steps beyond a lemon? Was it a Google Street View vehicle?
If I still had my truck and the necessary materials to hand, I would have fashioned a similar board, painted a word on it, and parked it across the street. One option was ‘Good.’ Another was ‘Knievel.’
It was a mystery, but I’m happy to report that when I passed by later in the day, the evil had been driven out of Hawi.

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Monthly Color Challenge: Jade.’ See more responses here. I think these photos are in the ballpark.
At the top is a selection of colorful kayaks available for rent on the beach at ʻAnaehoʻomalu Bay. The one on the left looks jade to me, maybe a couple of others, too.
The middle photo is a sign at a business in Hawi.
Finally, this building in Kapaau, housing L&L Hawaiian Barbecue and other businesses, has some jade as well as a multitude of other colors.
Ripples in the water of ʻAimakapā Fishpond at Kaloko-Honokōhau National Historical Park. It was a calm day and these weren’t wind generated, but rather from fish snatching insects off the surface of the pond.
I’ve posted about this sign before (here), but recently I was walking along the coast, noticed this view, and it struck me how odd this must look to anyone coming from this direction for the first time.

And finally, a heads up for those of a sensitive nature. Tomorrow’s post features spiders and an unfortunate beetle!
