Pacific Sunsets

Standard

You may have missed my recent attempt at posting my blog.  I was in Maui, Hawaii and my iPad didn’t want to allow me to post anything.  I thought about struggling with it, and then I thought; why?

This isn’t the best photo that I took, but on our first night, we were serenaded with a concert six floors down.  It was amazing.  I love music, I love tropical evenings, and I love pleasent surprises like this.  I wanted to keep the feel of the party long after it was gone.  I’ve been listening to their CD’s for days now.

Our first night in Wailea was beautiful and I took this while on our way to the welcome party, down the beach pathway which was just past the pool.

I had heard glorious rumors about Mama’s Fish House and was longing to go there all week.  We finally made it on the last evening and stopped in for an appetizer.  This place is like being in first class.  I wasn’t sure if I’d return to Maui, as it is rather congested for me these days, but I must return to go to Mama’s.  It was devine.

There’s more to come as we had many adventures while in Hawaii.  I’m missing the sound of the ocean waves as they pounded the shore.  It’s funny how fast you can grow to appreciate certain things.

The Real Deal

Last weekend it snowed in the Sierra.  It was a beautiful sight.  It was nearly all gone the following day so I’m glad that we stopped on a bridge to snap this photo.

The river was completely still, and as I looked a little closer there were two geese standing in the river.  They are the real deal, not at all like the ones on the roof at MacArthur Place.

A favorite sight for me is the fresh snow piled on the bare branches.

While on our journey, we came across a red barn.  You hardly notice it when there is no snow but it stands out with the white landscape around it.

A favorite barn on the road to the cabin.  We are sure that it won’t be standing for long.

I hope you were able to get a feel for the Sierra Snow, we haven’t seen much of it this year.  I’m hoping for more……
