Eva and Geoffrey Churchman from Waikanae are in Hawaii and have noticed similarities in place names.
No Waikanae here but there is a Waianae and a Waikane on Oahu — just one letter short in each case. Geoffrey Churchman
There are some which are the same as in New Zealand.
For example on the north-western island of Kauai there is a Waimea Canyon which is a miniature of the Grand Canyon in Colorado. (See the photo alongside.)
Meanwhile back on Waikiki the churchman’s came across some music making in the park.
