Down by the bay

Months ago Mr. Wonderful booked us for Hawaii.

Oh, the joy of sitting on the beach, staring out at the sea.

I've played in my sketchbook, not caring if things turned out fantastic or a total flop~ isn't that what experimentation is all about?

If you get to Kauai, you must visit the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and marvel at the cocoa and vanilla and coffee plants, the orchids and palms and birds.

But nothing beats the warm beach air for simple rest and restoration.
Not to mention eye candy!

I do love your artistic eye and the way you use it in all you photos. Loving all the colors too, and those striped glasses!

I was in the state a very long time ago. I remember a black sand beach in Maui, it was incredible. Glad to see you and MR.W are having a warm, restful vacation. You never cease to amaze me with your sketchbook constantly at hand. You must have dozens of filled books!
