Inspired by…a little creative license

When nature calls I come running. I work well with the sun shining, windows wide open, birds chirping and lots of life surrounding me. My perfect world.

My reality?

Dirty snow, mediocre temperatures, drizzle, socked in by low-lying clouds.  I love my home, but  I lust Hawaii. (Unless of course I can have a bluebird, spring ski day…)

I give Whistler the love it deserves most of the year, but I just have to work a wee bit harder to find inspiration during this time of the year. Spring is long and summer short. The grass is always greener…

Call it my own personal creative license, but as I slowly work myself back into my reality I am just going to keep dreaming (and blogging) of Hawaii.

Big Island, Hawaii, photography,

Ahhh…doesnt that just make you feel better!?? All the senses  are activated by a little ocean time…

Lava tube formed by hot lava flowing down into the ocean. Looking for an active volcano and a goddess to go with it? The Big island has it!

A little heaven on earth. Ranch land, lush, tropical rain forests, waterfalls,volcanic desert, snow capped mountains…

Big Island, Hawaii, photography, landscape

The Big Island has 11 of the 13 ecosystems. Its the youngest island, but the biggest and still growing, thanks to Pele, the  volcano goddess. Home of the most active volcano, Kilauea, the tallest sea mountain, MaunaKea. ~ and it also has a Walmart, Target and Pier One,scheduled to open in September!

Still working on my comfort level in the water having lived in the mountains for over 20 yrs now… waves get my heart  a thumping. I will conquer them.

In our backyard~ free! $15/stem at my local flower store, here in reality. Mango, papaya and avocado ripe and ready to go.

And always more flora and fauna…

A perfect end to a perfect day.

Bear with me a little longer as I transition back into my real world…but a girls got to dream!

Where’s your perfect world? The internet makes our big, beautiful world so accessible…I would love to check yours out!

  1. I was in Hawaii between my freshman year in hs & my sophomore year. That has been many years ago. Your pictures are amazing. It is nice to remember how absolutely gorgeous it was there. Thanks. 🙂
