It was a beautiful morning, so I drove up the Windward side of Oahu to Laie.




Some of the Polynesian Cultural Center tikis, plus a tiki group in front of the Laie Inn.




Some sad news on the Laie coast....

From this....

I inquired about the Tikis before they closed down...the receptionist took my number and said she would give it to the manager to follow up on...no lucky call back At least the sunsets and surf are still there....




Aloha, Freddie

Man, that is such a shame. I love these low rise places and original features.

Those were very cool looking Tikis. No Asian import mojo, done by a local professional no doubt. I would assume that someone appreciative saved these.

Came upon this one up in Cleveland....not a legitimate carving, per se....but I'd take it if I could fit it on the family van.

Here's one at the Tropic Sands Apartments down the street from me in Alameda, CA. There's a wooden bridge style walkway at the entrance between two lava rock ponds / fountains, the tiki, and some nice nautical elements. It looks better at night and they need to pull out some of the reedy looking vegetation.











Sadly, as of at least Sept 1, 2013, the cool Milan Guanko style Tiki is gone, and the tropical foliage is cut way back. I didn't park and check to see if other features were removed.

In the yard of a pretty swell midcentury split-level on SW Holden in Seattle.
