Last Few Hours in Paradise

This is where we are spending our last afternoon on Maui, in the lush back garden of Pineapple Inn, by the pool and in a warm breeze!

We were in the  San Francisco Museum of Modern Art when we got the phone call to tell us that my dear, dear friend Kath, in whose name I started this blog, had died. She would have loved the philosophy in this piece of artwork. Kath was one of the world’s beautiful people – always kind, always cheerful, always loving and concerned for the welfare of others above herself. We laughed and cried and put the world to rights together and I miss her.

Beach, Butterfly and Sunset

1. We spent the morning on Oneloa, Big Beach, at Makena and loved the colours, people watching and just sitting under the umbrella in the warmth.

2. Beautiful yellow butterflies fluttered by on their way to the purple flowers behind us. There were dragonflies too but I couldn’t catch one on camera

3 To round off a beautiful day there was a lovely sunset off South Kihei.

Pineapple Inn, Maui

This is where we arrived last night and even in the dark, it felt like Paradise! Let me show you some of the beauty on a short stroll around the gardens. I’m sorry that you can’t hear all the bird song nor feel the warmth though it is cloudy today as the remnants of Hurricane Ana hang around. There was a terrific thunderstorm last night after we arrived though our 39 minute flight from Big Island was not the scary one I had anticipated!
This is our room from the front with our lanai ( Hawaiian verandah)

An Elemental Day in Hawaii

What a magnificent day with my sister on The Big Island of Hawaii seeing splendiferous waterfalls to and then sunset at the volcano, Kilauea, as the lava lake showed its true colours lighting up as night fell.

We were standing on the edge of the crater here and it was so exhilarating to watch as the orange glow of the lava lake lit up the plume of vog coming out of Halema’uma’u.

October 2009

This was taken on one of our trips to Glasgow, a favourite city. We love the Rennie Mackintosh buildings and discovered this very pleasing sculpture on one of our  many walks. The word Peace is all over it in many different languages. I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the sculptor. If any reader can help out, I’d be delighted.
