|We arrived home just a few days ago|
to snow....the sun was out and the
snow was all mixed with the leaves.
It was our own special Fall and Winter,
thrown together to greet us.
|This is a long promised graphite|
drawing, that I worked on over the Summer.
I have been exploring Graphite
and watercolor combined.
It's definitely different for me,
but it is expressing where I am at the moment.
|We also visited the Nixon Library, which was just too|
close to miss. We are on a quest to see ALL of the Presidential Libraries. They are a wealth of information and history, no matter which political party you are aligned with at the time.
|Golf....my husband's passion. Maybe, you can see why, from this photo. This was one of his favorite places to play, and why not? That is a view of Haleakala, which is the resting volcano, right across the valley.|
|...and this is our breakfast view in the morning!!|
Seriously, a ship was coming into Lahaina for the day.
That is the island of Lanai, behind the ship.
|Even when it rained, the surfers were out...and the sun was trying to shine. We had only a few Maui showers, but they were spectacular.|
|We went "up country", to our favorite Lavender Farm|
the view is always spectacular of the valley (this is directly across from where Sweet Hubby was playing golf)
|The Lavender Farm grows Lavender, but also has a|
Botanical Garden filled with many local plants.
One of my favorites is the Protea, as shown above.
|We eat out on our small lanai, almost every evening,|
as we would watch the sunset. Sweet hubby would grill
local fish, and I would toss a salad.
A perfect way to end our day and our stay
on an island that we love deeply.
