Aloha, Again

Before I get started today, I’d like to thank you for so many recent photo orders.

In the last few weeks I’ve sold a lot of photos.

I appreciate your support so much.

I’ve got *health things* going on this week, so I hope you’ll forgive me for yet another day of Hawaii photos.

(Also?  My blog is STILL broken.  The only way I could upload photos for today’s post was via my photo site.  That means they’re all one-click-to-purchase photos today.)

Kauai is such a beautiful place,

I didn’t think anyone would mind too much.

Here’s a look at the exterior of “our” house from the little cove next door.

I would move into the house permanently, if only I could.

It was such a beautiful location – it’s hard to fully grasp even after staying there.

The building closest to the cove is an adorable guest cottage.

We had a big crowd sharing the house, so the cottage was put to good use while we were there.

In the mornings, we would have coffee sitting on the grass by the ocean.

It was so peaceful.

Oftentimes, Hawaiian throw-net fishermen would walk along the rocks and chat with us.

Throw-net fishing takes a lot of skill.

The fishermen were always friendly.  I enjoyed chatting with them.

One day, while on the East Shore drinking mai tais, we stopped by Wailua Falls.

Briefcase and I had visited the falls many years ago, but we wanted the others in our group to see them too.

Long ago, Hawaiian men would jump off the falls to prove their “manhood.”

(Apparently, some of them died in the process.)

Kauai seems to have it all –

Canyons, mountains, cliffs, forests, jungle, waterfalls, rivers ….

Doesn’t the above photo look very tropical and Hawaii-ish?

I took it out of the passenger car window as we were driving somewhere.

(Not bad for a moving car window shot …!)

I had a strong desire to spend weeks just walking around the island so I could photograph everything.

Maybe next time?

I’ll close with one of my favorite photos from our trip.

It’s such a “simple” photo, and that’s exactly why I like it.

I took it while I was on a little hike one day.

    I hope your *health things* don’t include a recall and the risk of your bionics short-circuiting.

    Aren’t those falls the ones in the helicopter scene in Jurassic Park?
