Relaxed. Refreshed. Rejuvenated. The Big Island of Hawaii is very much alive. Snow capped mountains, volcanic deserts, waterfalls, black sand beaches and fields of black lava. All of this interspersed with big, bold colorful flowers and pockets of white sandy beaches and tourquoise water. A sensory overload. A vast canvas waiting to be explored. Beautiful, soft shades of green, blue and gray mingle together Texture. Sand, lava rock, coral, old weathered wood, bamboo Big, beautiful, bold organic shapes and colors Fresh, juicy fruit off the tree. Mangoes,Papaya,Starfruit. The unbelievable taste of butter avocado. The never-ending song of the surf. I wish I could bottle up all of this goodness for the long winter months ahead.
