What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        I assume that these now adorn your mantel?

        I can just picture someones Nanna back home opening her letterbox expecting a lovely postcard and instead... a giant coconut!

        I am imagining look on my children's faces if we send one of these home to them when we go to Hawaii in a few weeks. They would think it is hilarious!

        Extremely Surprising!
        I think this is just an adorable idea,
        forget how much it will weigh, just mail it if you want to cheer-up someone. :)

        Very fun! Although I wonder if the local post office agrees. :-)

        You know you're in Hawaii when... :)

        I got one of those in the 50's when I was a kid and my uncle who is a dentist was based in Hawaii while in the service. I still remember it!! ;)

        We are off to Hawaii next week so very excited since it is my first time!

        What fun! Reminds me a bit of the coco-de-mer of the Seychelles. They're not painted, but certainly eye-catching.

        I think the closest thing I've seen to these around here was the "postcard" box of dried cherries (billed as an "edible postcard") that I addressed and sent home from the Traverse City area :)

        I saw these many times on Maui last week, but resisted the temptation to buy. Thanks for the quick memory! :)

        If you are planning to surprise your recipient then that hand painted coconut is a great idea for a mail. I have not seen anything like it yet but it seems in the picture a very unique way of sending a greeting from a dear friend or family. This is something to look forward to in Hawaii.
