a day at the beach

Just some pictures from Maui in March 2015  I don’t think I’ve posted before.  Maui is great for surfers – and they always attract a crowd from the shore.  Grab lunch in Paia and then go to Ho’okipa Beach Park and take in all the sights.

For when you have a week that needs a little cute animal therapy to get you through it!

And my favourite animal picture I’ve ever taken….just look at that face.  The Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia is beautiful in so many different ways, but to get this close to a bear who trusted that you were only there to admire it in awe and capture it in a picture was pretty amazing.

let’s watch a tropical sunset

It’s been one of the mildest winters in Saskatchewan in many years. I don’t have the usual longing to escape somewhere warm, but if given the chance, who wouldn’t want to watch a sunset in a tropical locale….

let’s start the day with a rainbow and end the day with a stunning sunset

Kaanapali Beach on Maui is my paradise.  Morning walks on the beach, followed by either relaxing by the pool or heading out and exploring other parts of the island, the goal was always to be back at the beach to watch the sunset. Everyday on Maui is a feast for the eyes, no morning sky is the same, and the sunsets are stunning.

Let’s go to the beach and stick our toes in the sparkling sand and watch the setting sun and the heaving and sighing of the waves and the golden ribbon on the water that disappears into the horizon…

Kaanapali Beach, March 2015, one of my favourite pics this year (and one of my happy places!!)

Kaanapali Beach Reminiscing

I’ve collected quotes for as long as I can remember, and this is one of my favourites.  (I came across it again the other day and thought I’d share it with some of my favourite pictures from Kaanapali Beach in March – watching the sunset every night was my favourite part of the trip).

“The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these, the spirit blooms timidly, and struggles to the light amid the thorns.”
