A Hawaiian dream II


Turquoise, green, blue... The colours dreams must be made of, perhaps. To the lighthouse, the one with a shiny, red roof. Mouthwatering shrimp scampi from the world famous Giovanni's shrimp truck. "Eat like a local" they say, and we sure stuck to it. Beautiful coconut-bamboo wind chimes, their music so very different from the tinkle of the metallic chimes. 'Enchanted Banyan', the shade under which many a story is told and many a future foretold. Beads again. The omnipresent hula, be it the dance or the dolls. The Ko'olau mountains, fascinating and forever fog-masked. Guarding the windward side of the island, they stand like green giants rising from the blue ocean. The Byodo-In temple framed by the misty mountains. The ever striking red pagodas matched perfectly by an echoing calm. Feisty heliconias at the temple gate. The remains of the day.

    1. Celine, merci beaucoup! You give me way too much credit. That is the the reflection of the ocean on the mirror in our hotel room that I just happened to notice one day. So I ain't that gifted after all; just curious I suppose. :-)
