Did you know that Hawaii has the only royal palace in the United States? Yes, indeed. Iolani Palace. The official residence of King Kalakaua and is successor and sister Queen Lili'uokalani (say that three time fast). They make you put on little booties over your shoes so I was expecting great floors and I was not disappointed. The woodwork, the doors, the door hinges, the workmanship was breath taking. In the palace is the prison chamber of Queen Lili'uokalanie. Where she was held for 8 months after her government was overthrown backed by the US government.

Did you know that the Hawaiin language has only 13 letters?

Here is today's picture from my window:

The weather people say the trade winds are back today, cooler winds and clearer sky's the result.
