Since the weather is alternating between sleet, snow and rain this morning, I thought I’d take a virtual trip back to Hawaii. Some very dear friends took me on a cruise there four years ago and it was heaven. I didn’t take that many photos because I had my point-and-shoot, and I wanted to just enjoy being with my friends.
Plumeria in Kona. The best-smelling flower in the world! This was actually a tree, not a single plant. I had a potted version in California and it bloomed every summer, but the flowers were tiny compared to these. I use part of this for my Flickr avatar.
My friend and I had lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp in La Haina, Maui, after a lot of shopping. It’s right over the water and you can hear the waves lapping. The sign cracks me up every time. It’s from “Forrest Gump” the movie, if anyone is wondering.
Maui tropical plantation. It really looks like this.
Na Pali coast of Kauai. I believe they filmed “Lost” here. Beautiful beyond belief.
OK, back to reality now.
