Interesting about Hawaii ....
The state of Hawaii consists of eight main islands: Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and the Big Island of Hawaii.
Hawaii is the only state that grows coffee.
More than one-third of the world’s commercial supply of pineapples comes from Hawaii.
Under-sea volcanoes that erupted thousands of years ago formed the islands of Hawaii.
Hawaii was the 50th state admitted to the union on August 20th, 1959.
Hawaii has its own time zone (Hawaiian Standard Time.) There is no daylight savings time.) The time runs two hours behind Pacific Standard Time and five hours behind Eastern Standard Time.
The wind blows east to west in Hawaii. The highest recorded temperature is 96′ F (Honolulu Airport), but temperatures over 92′ F generally occur only once or twice a year. The lowest temperature (under 3000 feet altitude) is 56′ F. Temperatures under 60′ F may occur but rarely more than once a year. Average daytime temp. (July) is 82′ F. Average daytime temperature in January is 72′ F.

THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII The Big Island is Hawaii’s largest at 4,038 square miles. It is twice the size of all other Hawaiian Islands combined.
