Island Spirit


This is a short series of impressions from Hawaii when we were there recently for my daughter's wedding on June 1.

It doesn't get much more Hawaiian than this!

[Today I'm in Atlanta.]

Gorgeous bold colors. I like the way the swim trunks echo the red and yellow from the catamaran.
Ginnie Hart: What a sight for sore eyes, Red Pen. I'm sure the "matching" guy was the Captain of the Ship. smile Thanks.

This is a perfect holiday photo ... great colors and contrasts. I'd like to be there now.
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing we'd all like to be there right now, Carsten. smile Thanks.

Wow, Ginnie. What a beautiful boat and his swimming trunks match the boat! How beautiful. I need a trip to the beach.
Ginnie Hart: Smart advertising for the Captain of the Ship, Sherri. smile I'm guessing we'd all like to be there right about now.

So...Elvis is correct about Hawaii being "blue".
Extraordinary deepness of colour of the water at the horizon.
This is a beautifully presented image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ray. Elvis was right. smile It was like this every day we were there! Thanks.

I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. The colors are gorgeous as is the sky and the water.
Ginnie Hart: Just do it, Helen! I hope you can some day. It was my third time and I can see why people keep going back. Life slows down to where you're able to enjoy the little things! Good to see you back.

Somewhere I'm aching to visit. And no excuse as our clan often nip over from Canada. So one day....

A super image full of vivid colour which makes me want to grab my passport and depart immediately.
Ginnie Hart: Just do it, Paul! grin It is such a super place for some great R&R!

I like the warm color,nice shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Zohre. The colors are very inviting, aren't they!
I agree with Sherri, I like his corporate shorts!
Ginnie Hart: HA! A good way to advertise his ship, Nigel. grin Thanks.
This is really vibrant Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Enough to wake up an army, Chris. grin Thanks.

I like the colours and they give a Hawaaiian feeling of holidays or wedding as I imagine in my (may be cliché-) fantasy- especially the blues of sky and sea and the beautiful combination of yellow and red, the attractive shorts of the inhabitant on the right side are very fitting to (his?)ships! Nice reflections on the strand- sun pure the whole day! Lovely!
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling every day is like a wedding (or honeymoon) when some people are there, Philine. It has that magical appeal. And for sure, that man has got to be the Captain of the Ship! smile

I could sail with this boat to the end of the world and never come back.....THIS is so good, love the colours, love the ontzettend mooie border around it, everything is good to this picture, I hope you will join me for a trip with this boat.
Ginnie Hart: I would definitely go to the end of the world with you in this boat, Astrid! You'd be the Captain (in those cute, colorful shorts), I'd be your co-pilot (and cook and do the dishes), and Tracy would climb the mast to be the look-out for us (because she wants to get over her fear of heights!). grin Wouldn't that be a hoot!

Oh why can't you be more like Chris, Ginnie, he so good...LOL
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHAHA! I guess we all our stuck with our own gifts and talents, Chad! smile
The colour hits you right between the eyes! Makes a great postcard Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It sure wakes you up, Bill, if you weren't awake already. grin Thanks.

This looks like the perfect beach holiday - white sand, blue sea and sky and a bit of shade - heaven. Love the matching trunks!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Now we know why this is Paradise to so many people. Thanks, Ingrid.
i know i won't need a travel guide whenever i'm ready to tour the world
i'll just call on you grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! I will gladly answer any questions you might have, DrAW, to the best of my ability! smile Thank you, kind sir.
You're presenting so well this boat Ginnie. I love the colours. I am ready to board anytime!
Ginnie Hart: It would make a great venue for a SC get-together, Richard, wouldn't it! grin Thanks.
Un vrai rêve, du soleil, du ciel bleu, de l'eau !
C'est très gentil de partager son soleil avec tous ceux qui ne vivent sous la pluie.
Ginnie Hart: It's a magical place, Ceanothe, for sure! Merci.

Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Ruth. Bill and Linda rode on a similar one and said they had a great time.
Very zingy colours Ginnie....we could do with a few weeks there right now!!!
Ginnie Hart: I think we all could, Chris. smile Thanks.

Paradise and Heaven all rolled into one Ginniesmile
How I would love to be siting on that beach watching the day go by or sailing on that boat just chilling.

Fantastic shot and the clarity is outstanding toosmile
Ginnie Hart: I know you're not in Germany, Tracy, but thank you anyway! grin The Musketeers would sure enjoy taking this out for a spin, wouldn't we. I told Astrid we'd send you up the mast to be our look-out, since you're getting over your fear of heights! grin
Looks very inviting Ginnie, great image.
Ginnie Hart: And for a price, Bridge, I'm sure. smile Thanks.
Lovely colours Ginnie, oh to get this sort of sunshine in the U.K.on a regular basis. Just noticed the shadows on the beach, a great fill in for what could be a blank area.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Brian. It doesn't seem quite fair, does it. Oh well. I guess that's why it's called Paradise.

Those shadows are of the palm trees that Trim is looking for. smile Thanks.
