Lots of beauty here to capture… Reply ↓ David July 31, 2015 • 10:43 am In Hawaii too, you do get around. 🙂 Make sure you get a plumeria lei when you leave. The scent will make you ache to return when you get home. Poi, that’s an acquired taste – it’ll taste like glue when you take your first taste. My first taste was in kindergarten. It was blah. Fortunately my friend was a pure Hawaiian boy who liked poi. Traded my poi for his punch drink. Safe travels. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie August 1, 2015 • 4:19 pm Hi David- what great memories! I am in love with Plumeria– I did have Poi in various preparations and enjoyed it. Definitely an acquired taste- you made out well with your trade 😉appreciate your comment– thank you!

The plumeria is so beautiful – no wonder the ladies like to wear them behind the ear! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 29, 2015 • 8:23 pm Thanks, Deb! I am in love with Plumeria– I put one in my ear right away 🙂 Reply ↓ Mary July 29, 2015 • 11:13 am Doesn’t get any better – enjoy your holiday!

My favourite shot has to be the one of opened coconut with the straw sticking out…partly because I lovvve a fresh coconut and fresh coconut juice. Hope you had a great trip there soaking up the sun and enjoying what it has to offer 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 27, 2015 • 10:41 pm Hi Mabel, I loved poking around the Sunday Farmers Market. What a treat to see the local produce and foods. We are enjoying the peaceful and inspiring beauty of the island. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. Mahalo. Reply ↓ Tina Schell July 27, 2015 • 6:27 pm A lovely taste of Hawaii Jane – hope your trip and the birthday celebration are great. Interestingly, I loved the jars 😄 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 27, 2015 • 10:38 pm Hi T, It’s been a very special time. What better place to focus on small moments of beauty.. I was really pleased with the jars, too. Thanks so much. Hope all is going well there. Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
