Some Of Our Favorites

Good Morning Dear Friends~ I hope you had a splendid weekend, filled with fragrant aromas, tantalizing tastes and beauty to behold.  I always seem to forget that when you live in a climate that has cold, snowy winters where everything is brown or white, you appreciate the vibrant colors of the islands so much more.
I hope you enjoy these photos too; may you be energized today by these flowers.

We were told this was a type of crane, but don't remember its name. It was so still and intent; I'm sure it was looking for its lunch.
Peggy, me and Judy enjoying great times together.
After the Botanical Gardens, we went to my favorite lunch spot-Keoki's Paradise at Poipu Beach.
Again, I had the Ceviche; as I've mentioned before my idea of sushi is California Rolls, but let me tell you I'd eat this again and again.  It was so light and tasted so healthy-makes me want to go there today.

This is Spouting Horn, at the end of Poipu Beach; hubby did see some turtles but he wasn't able to get any pics of them. 
Today, he is golfing and I will be enjoying time by myself-either reading or blogging.  It is hard to believe we only have four days left; it has been such a nice break.  Hubby is fulfilling his dream of playing one of the greatest golf courses over here, tomorrow; it is Princeville and he got such an incredible deal thanks to some dear friends in Arizona. 
I hope you find joy in the moment!


  1. It looks like you are still having a wonderful time, Noreen. You found some beautiful spots there and it is great that hubby was able to golf so much. MyHero would think he had died and gone to golf heaven!

    Enjoy every moment of your last 4 days-xo Diana

  2. It's like we are there with you, such wonderful pictures. You lunch indeed does look MOM.
    Make the most of your time left.
    Years ago, many years, my MOM was in Hawaii when she was a DJ and she did her show there for a week. She got to ride a killer whale right after she interviewed him. And if that was not enough she jumped of (I hope I spell it right) Waimea Falls. She jumped from the second highest spots that the cliff divers dive from. I was not even born yet when she did it. But I think she was crazy.
    Enjoy the rest of your time there.

  3. I am so enjoying your photos of familiar sights!!! We were there with our kids about 13 years ago. Loved it. Maui is our favorite island, but I would love to go back there again with Greg. He would so love to golf there. He did golf a few times in Maui. Enjoy the rest of your time in Paradise!!!

  4. 4 days left ... if you're like me, you're alternating between excitment to get back home to see those little ones and disappointment at having to leave. That Ceviche looks wonderful ... made me hungry! ;-)

  5. It sounds wonderful!!!
    So glad you are enjoying yourself (o:
    It is really warm here. Tomorrow is suppose to be downright hot. I guess I better look for my Capris.

  6. Enjoy the time with your special friends. What an exquisite place that is - and the flora is incredible.
