This photograph was taken a year ago this month…last November, in Honolulu. It’s a small portion of the roof of the grand dame of Hawaiian hotels...the pink palace of the pacific…the Royal Hawaiian. I have lovely memories of taking my Starbucks to this hotel and relaxing in it’s gracious lobby. One afternoon we were even served lovely pink lemonades on a tray by a pink uniformed, white gloved waiter, when the people he brought the drinks for, had disappeared. We felt very la-de-da, don'tcha know!
If you’re heading to Hawaii this winter, I’d like to recommend the lobbies of both the Royal Hawaiian and the Hilton Village hotels in Honolulu, as lovely places to relax with a coffee or a cool drink, while watching the too-ing and fro-ing of many beautiful brides and their wedding parties!
I really enjoyed our trip to Hawaii last year and hope to go back again next year. I’ve become very sensitive to the energy of places and find Hawaii’s energy is very soft and gentle. It must be an island thing…being surrounded by all that water and nature…as I notice it here too as soon as we drive off the ferry when we come home.
Ahhh, Hawaii…sigh…I’m very grateful for your beauty, your breezes, your music and your lovely Aloha spirit...and I hear you calling me back.
Thank you all for visiting…I’m so glad you came to share a little Aloha with me today.
This pictures is doing double duty for both the 30 Days of Gratitude project and the 52 photo's project. The theme this week at 52 photographs Project is Aqua and I realized that I’d never posted this picture before, so dug it out of the archives! I used one of Flypapers, Summer Painterly textures (Dorian Grey) to intesify the colours slightly and give it that paintbrush texture.
