I Love Boston

Came across this piece of art while walking from my office to the main campus. I thought it might have been a work done by the graffiti artist…

Egret at Sunrise

This is the same sunrise as yesterday’s post. However, this photo was taken with my Canon Powershot while the other photo was taken with my iPhone. I’m always…

Monday Morning

I left the house 5 minutes early, this morning, so I could take a picture of the sunrise. I guess I should have left a little earlier as…

Beach Buoys

I only went out to Saquish twice this summer. Wish I could take more vacation time and go there to walk the beach, relaxing on the porch and…

Summer Sunset

It’s hard to believe that a week from today we will be in September! The sun is already setting earlier and the nights are a little cooler. Each…

Fish Flower Trees

Came across this display on my walk to work. Not sure if it’s a special art exhibit or just decorations. Either way it adds a little bit of…

America

I didn’t see the ship docked in Plymouth harbor but was lucky enough to see it sail by while out at Saquish. From the Plymouth 400 website: THE…

Snorkeling

One of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation was snorkeling. We rented great equipment and my cousins took us to a couple of awesome locations. The first day…

Living Dangerously

Oh yes, we were living dangerously while on vacation! I think we need t-shirts that say “I survived my Hawaiian vacation.” Luckily, we never had any flash flooding…

Waterfront Music

Met up with Mom, Dad, Chris and Karen, last night to listen to the music on the waterfront. Beautiful sunset and even a full moon (I think it’s…

Sunset Beach

Okay, I’m no longer homesick. I’m ready to go back to paradise :-).

Hawaiian Mail

I like how the simple addition of a surf board adds so much to this mailbox landscape.

Oahu Wedding

Pretty nice spot for a wedding. We came across this wedding ceremony/reception while visiting the Turtle Bay Resort.

Blue Jade Vine

We stopped at a winery on our way to the airport, after leaving Hana. Came across this unique flower while walking the grounds of the winery. I have…

Purple Lotus Flowers

While in Oahu we visited the Waimea Botanical Garden. This was the place where we were able to swim under the waterfall. We hiked through the botanical garden…

Penguins

I wasn’t really expecting to see penguins while in Maui but we did. These penguins were at the Hyatt Hotel. We went over to the Hyatt to listen…

Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach

It was very cool to not only see the black sand beaches but to also go swimming in them. I went swimming at this beach which had the…

Waterfalls

One of the highlights of the trip was going on hikes to see various waterfalls. We were even able to swim at one of the waterfalls (while another…

Pearl Harbor

The only thing we planned to do on Oahu was to visit Pearl Harbor. We went yesterday and it was quite the moving experience. We were honored to…

Hawaiian Fruits and Flowers

Lots of beautiful flowers and fruits in Hawaii. Haven’t eaten as much fresh fruit as I thought I would. Probably because I want it all chopped and prepared…

Life’s A Beach

Just to the left of our building at the Papakea Resort was a beach. It was a beautiful sandy beach. We took a nice early walk one morning…

‘Iao Valley

Before going to the blowhole (yesterday’s post) our first stop after landing in Maui was ‘Iao Valley. It was a great little walk to introduce us to the…

Nakalele Blowhole, Maui

When we landed in Maui we had time to kill before checking in to our hotel. So, my cousin, who use to live in Maui, and visits every…
