tea and sorting

my tea is black, hot and strong
... Breakfast Tea ...
back to reality I guess

I'm posting this very late
I think I must still be on Island Time
(it's only 8:45 a.m. in Kaua'i)

I collected shells and things from every beach we were on
It's fun to sort them and remember the places they are from

shells from the North Shore
(Ha'ena Beach)

bits of plastic from the East Shore
(Lydgate Beach)

shells from the South Shore
(Poipu Beach)

teeny tiny shells from the Southwest Shore
(Waimea and Salt Pond Beach)

Today I'm working on sorting my photos
Kaua'i is an amazing place
in the past I've been to Maui
(which I love too)
both places are just so DIFFERENT from each other
Kaua'i is very unspoiled and natural
we had a beautiful beautiful time
I would go back every year if I could


I hope your day, your week, your summer is sun-filled, warmth-filled, beauty-filled
I just love this time of the year!

So good to see that you are back. You were missed. I enjoyed seeing the very distinct and unique shells and flotsom that you found at the various beaches. I can't believe you are drinking anything hot. It must not be hot in the Pacific NW today.

Welcome home, dear.

Really lovely to have you back home Kimmie...I can only imagine that Hawaii is a place you might not want to leave so soon

your treasures are all so wonderful ... plastic never looked so good and the tiny shells ... I spy some limpets! I could entertain myself for hours ... maybe days ... beachcombing!

hope your reentry to reality is sweet and smooth ... the things you've seen and experienced will never leave you ... that is what I adore about travel it makes us so rich

Terri Kahrs said...

Welcome home, Kimmie! I love the treasures you've collected. Just thinking of walking along the beach put me in a great state of mind! Hugs, Terri xoxo

ooo, you found some lovely things on the island! there is a glass beach there, just around the corner from an old landfill...perhaps I will blog about it someday.

Bea said...

I love my black tea. Sometimes you just need it black and strong. Your collection of shells and doodads from the beaches are so beautiful. I have something similar but they are all in one giant glass jar. I do keep the little bags of sand that I collect, from the beaches, separate. Why, I'm not sure but I like their different colors. :)Bea

I know you had an incredible time. I prefer Kauai over Maui. Two very different islands. I love Hanalei. I can smell the plumeria!!!!!!!
