Merry Christmas from me to you...
and I'm wishing you a Happy New Year, too!
Happy Holidays to you and welcome to my Christmas tackk. Check out the photos below and you'll see what I've been up to this year.
Trudy, Rosemary, Mary H, and I went to Hawaii this summer (I'm the one in the middle, and Mary H was smart enough to stay on the bus at this particular stop!). We are at the top of Mauna Kea - and, boy was it COLD at 13,000 feet, even in July. We had a great evening of stargazing after watching the sun set from above the clouds.
Now, this is what Hawaii is all about.. lava, palm trees, water, and sunlight. We snorkeled, walked beaches, hiked a bit, visited coffee and macadamia nut farms, relaxed by the pool, went to a traditional hula show, and had a great time seeing the sights.
And, of course the flowers were beautiful! Reds, purples, yellows, oranges, pinks, dainty little whites... it was really awesome, and wonderfully fragrant.
No, this isn't Hawaii, it's St. George Island, Florida! It was the summer of sand and sun. We truly just walked on the beach, sat on beach, swam a bit, read books on the porch while watching the beach... the goal was relaxation after a busy school year and we achieved it!
