OK, so tell us where these were taken. The first could be anywhere. What about the other two.

Oops, I meant mention that this is Hawaii. The palm trees in the globe should be a clue. The last is a sand sculpture of a Hawaiian Santa and his Hawaiian elves. It is kind of strange (to someone not from Hawaii) to walk around with all the holiday decorations that, outside of Hawaii, are associated with cold dark not 80s and sunny. Although down in Australia it is summer now.

Daz,

Great capture! The sand sculpture is remarkably detailed complete with Menehunes (the approximately equivalent of elves). Aloha

I really like that last one. I know what you mean about it being strange to see Christmas decorations when it's warm outside, though that's the norm for me.
