yes, i know, more hawai'i pictures. hopefully you like them at least half as much as i do? i figured that since it's vintage photo friday (which will be up this afternoon), i should just run with a vintage/antique theme. so, here goes.
this amazingly beautiful place is called grove farm and is a preserved sugar plantation. it's pretty much greenfield village, but in hawai'i. i'm sure you can imagine my excitement when eric's parents told me we were going to this place. and oh man, was it so cool. i don't think i even posted any pictures of grove farm when we got back from hawai'i, which is definitely a shame.
anyway, these particular pictures are from the main home of the plantation. this house has a huge amazing wrap around porch. these are all from the same porch, but each side of the house had a slightly different feel to it. yes, the floors really are that shiny! it was really cool seeing them in person. we had to take our shoes off to go in the house, and the shiny floors captured the heat of the sun a little bit too efficiently. i was walking in the shadows, ha!
can't you just imagine yourself sitting in one of those lovely rocking chairs, reading a gripping hawai'ian novel, sipping an iced tea and watching the wild hawai'ian chickens running around your expansive lawn? sigh...
