One of my favorite things to do while there in the early mornings (besides eating papaya drizzled in lime juice) is blow on a conch shell. The islanders make it look so simple. It's not. But with practice a non-native woman like myself can actually blow into a conch and make quite a bit of noise.
Last year when we were in Hawaii my husband bought a conch to take home with us. How fun is that? If you're going to remember Hawaii...buy a shell that can make noise. It brings back all sorts of memories on a continual basis.
Why? Because I don't let it sit in our living room without taking it outside and blowing it on our front steps every couple of weeks. It's so dang entertaining...maybe not to my neighbors, but I do believe the horses and chickens have gotten used to it. Check the videos out.
