Lopaka is Robert in Hawaiian (Robert is my real name), and Selector is another name for DJ in Jamaica, hence the name Selector Lopaka. I spin records here in Seattle under that moniker.

GASP!!!!

I'm making one of your pics my background. That could convert anyone to tiki.

Correction!
FreddieFreelance, thanks for pulling this thread up! It's not noon yet, I'm not a morning person!

Puamana,

Very nice indeedie! Beachdude (KC Heylin) is my buddy that sold me the old Tepco kava bowl (I'm gonna give him sh$& for not letting me know about those tapa lamps!).

Do your neighbors think you're a California whacko or something?

That's the sound of my eyes popping right out of my head! What can I say? Sheer perfection! Truly a magical little paradise...can't believe it's in the NW!!! You have just set the bar for tiki design very high!

Puamana & Selector Lopaka- Thanks so much! Your photos saved me $100sss. I have a very Polynesian backyard (yeah yeah yeah photos to come..one day I'll go digital blah blah) and I had been contemplating a boardwalk style walkway. Bare bones estimate was $500 for lumber only and the construction chick doing all the work. I made no progress in 2 yrs. because I couldn't cope with this intense construction project. Then your pictures (clouds part, sun shines, birds sing) and I have since bought 900 lbs. of stone. I set them into the lawn and reseeded around them. I need about 600 lbs. more to complete the path. THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION!!!! (Photos soon....yeah really. I promise.)

I'm curious about the moai in your yard, is it concrete?

Awesome transformation, I would love to do the same some day when I buy a house were I know I'll stay.

The birdbath Moai is concrete, we picked it up at a local garden shop. Some friends of ours just saw the same Moai in three sizes at a garden shop in Vancouver BC recently. Ours is the largest size.

In regards to a night shot, the best of them are up. This project wasn't finished until mid August 2003, and we never got a chance to get torches up before it all went dormant for the winter.

We planted a ton of bulbs (lilies, irises, and more) in late fall, and we (im)patiently await spring. We're so psyched to watch the garden come back to life, and have the whole season in 2004 for Backyard Bali Ha'i fun and frolic. We hope some of you TCers passing through Seattle, as well as all you locals, will get to see it. Mahalo Humuhumu for your pics! Happy New Year everyone!
