Baby Gecko is tiny

There's plenty of excellent dining here on the Big Island - though oddly all the excellent restaurants we've found have been in strip malls or in industrial parks.

Cheviche Dave's is one of those places, sitting in a business park on the Kona coast. To be honest, I wasn't sure about it at first, as most of my experience with cheviche has been in conference receptions. Dave's is a different story, with fresh deep sea fish everyday, and a $10 sampler to get you started. The fish we had was ono, and I had to go back for more.

Highly recommended.

As we were leaving I saw a brightly coloured gecko on the wall of the unit. It swiftly hid behind a trash can, but a much smaller (and much younger) specimen remained to pose for the cameras.

Baby Gecko

The blue around its eyes was just amazing.

I knew that Hawaii had issues with coqui frogs and Jackson's chameleons, but I didn't know it had Madagascar day geckos, too. Thanks for passing that on.
