Sharing some inspiration from the Big Island of Hawaii.
I love the assault of my senses here. The colours and shapes are bright and bold. The temperature and trade winds are gentle on the skin.The saltwater invigorating. And there really is nothing like getting pummelled by the Pacific to really feel alive
I love sitting here listening to the sounds of seaside living.
Lots of birds, crashing waves, the clatter of geckos and the early morning return of the fishing boats back to the bay. There are no boundaries between outside and in. It’s a bit like living in a treehouse
Everything is just so different from my usual back home in Whistler. I think that is what I love most about it here.
I can’t resist the urge to pick up almost everything on my morning runs here. It makes for a bit of a run/ walk, but is always well worth it.
This is generally how my hat returns home..
I often entertain the thought of moving here one day. It’s a topic of conversation that comes up often when we are here. It’s hard to say whether it would lose some of its magic.
For now I will continue to be a dreamer, taking pictures of all that inspires me here. I know it won’t be long until our next visit.
I was thrilled to wake up this morning and discover on Instagram that Michelle Osorio had also been inspired by my #florafoliage series posted there. (you can see them here)
Look at her beautiful, delicate water-colour. I have to say it made my day! You can find Michelle here on Instagram
I am going to milk out this tropical feeling for as long as possible – pineapples are up next week!
