Hawaiian holiday

DSCN5139

Some regular visitors to this site will know that we love all things Hawaiian and our chalet reflects that.  Click on ‘Hawaii’ in the Tag cloud on the right of this and catch all the other Hawaiian posts . We’ve been lucky enough to have had friends living out there for twenty years so we try to make regular visits, in fact him indoors and teenage son have just come back from a trip. I couldn’t join them this time but was inundated with Hawaiian goodies, including a fresh Micronesian Ginger lei that survived the flight and will now dry naturally at the chalet giving off the most delicious scent.

this is my favorite, not as vibrant as the others but rather chic, a green tea orchid.

I am starting to save as my sister and I are planning another trip in a couple of years. Life is just too short not to give yourself a little treat once in a while and these loungers below have got our names on them for 2015.
