Early morning, blue skies, gentle breeze, fresh smells as the forest of ohios awakes…bird song bouncing through the tree tops. We’re prepared …chocolate, water and walking stick. The trail is damp from overnight rain, rocky and in some places steep. The colors are luminescent, shiny bright….
Mauna kea glimpsed through the forest canopy.
Beneath the towering heights of the Pali a beautiful botanic park lies….plants, animals and birds…on the windward side of Oahu….
Its name means to “make a place of peace and tranquility….
Heliconias….above and below
Taro growing on the edge of a lake.
A beautiful fragrance….??
Red seal bamboo…
The view driving in….
smooth weathered rounded curved and ancient…..
This weeks photo challenge is Curve.
A crisp sunny morning walk with friends …
a smorgasboard of seaweeds and kelp
and other fascinating sea offerings ……
A hermit crab venturing out of its shell
A soft pale pink sponge
A glistening red shell the size of my little finger nail with an occupant!
Skeletal remains ….think its a skate
A perfect feather carefully draped atop
A glorious autumn morning’s walk which we finished off with a swim in the ocean…. Happiness is a beach!
