Photo Challenge Number 5: Retro Groove.
Yes I own a pair of saddle shoes. I LOVE them! My daughter gave them to me for Christmas about 6 years back. I used to wear them to work now and again. I've always had a thing for saddle shoes!
But now on to a different pair of shoes. Something more suitable for the beach.
Our trip to Hawaii is less than six weeks away, and I'm starting to get fidgety.
[You can probably tell that by my new countdown clock in the upper right corner of the page.]
Our first trip to Kauai was in 2010 for three fantastic weeks. We are so fortunate to be able to do this again, and this time we are taking my Mom with us. I'm pretty sure she's excited to be going. And I am really looking forward to sharing some of our great memories of our last trip with her.
Like Shipwreck Beach. It's close to our condo.
And Waimea Canyon.
And the caves of the North Shore.
[Funny little side note: This photo was taken by a young couple who we began chatting with after the husband made a "Go Sox!" comment in reference to Wayne's shirt. Come to find out we are from the same small town in Massachusetts. And his aunt was co-captain with me on our high school tennis team. That's the age old definition of "Small World."]
The luau at the Mediterranean Gourmet.
[It was hot, if you know what I mean. The fire, of course, that's what I'm talking about. Geeez.]
And of course the roosters. Isn't this guy just stunning? I am hoping to attempt a painting of one of these guys.
This time we'll be going in September instead of March, so the weather there will be (hopefully) less rainy. :)
I've been scouring Trip Advisor, and pouring over all our photos and my travel journal from our last trip. And I came across this blog: One Day at a Time . Jennifer and family just returned from a two week trip to Kauai a few days ago. So I've been lurking over there as well. I think that sometimes the anticipation of a trip is as much fun as the trip itself.
So much to be thankful for. I try not to forget that.
Have a wonderful week... let your light shine.
