The Dole Plantation

The plantation was much more interesting than we thought it would be.  Did you know that each plant has only 2 production years?  It takes 18 months to 2 years to produce the first fruit, and then another year to produce one more pineapple, and then the plant pretty much calls it quits.

There's a huge maze here in the pineapple field, but we wanted to romp in it with our grandkids, so we'll have to wait for that 'til our return in 6 months, along with a train ride Ben will love!

Hula pineapple.  So silly!
And if there's a hula girl, likely there's a hula boy, too.
Mighty big koi and a coin operated feeder they seem to like!
