A break from the sleet, slush and snow….

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, Kona

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.

Bubba Gump's--La Haina, Maui

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

Na Pali coast of Kauai. I believe they filmed “Lost” here. Beautiful beyond belief.

OK, back to reality now. 🙂

  1. I wish I was there yesterday (and today)! Then my wrist wouldn’t hurt from shoveling snow.

    • Can you believe how heavy the snow was?? I’m typing this from a hotel as we lost power almost 24 hrs. ago and still don’t have it. Our big maple tree split and now the branches are lying on power lines. But our neighbor had it worst–a fire in her basement!

    Oh yes, I do like this post. The flowers are lovely, I think I know how they smell, very rich and intense. I have never been to Hawaii but it is one of my dream destinations.

    What delicious point of relief from the frigid cold, snow and lack of sunshing. Thanks, Carole – these shots feel like a bit ‘fix’!
