Take a Break from Winter - Wordless Wednesday




I thought some of you might need a break from winter and enjoy some shots from Hawaii. Once again I couldn't decide on just one picture. Enjoy.

Beautiful, all three, but I think my favorite is the hibiscus. Mmmmm, seeing those pictures makes me want to visit myself!

Stunning, as always :).

I love the turtle and the other pics are very soothing. Thanks!

happy WW!

Shelia said...

The beautiful hibiscus has me yearning for Spring. I load my garden up with them every year.

Happy WW! :D

Bobbie said...

Robert, I could swear I know that turtle personally. They're all great photos, and I can see why you couldn't pick just one.

Yummy said...

A very nice set of photos! Thanks for giving us all a mini-vacation. :)

You can see my post here.

Its beautiful, I like the second image.

All 3 pictures are great. I really like the coconut trees the best. Coconuts grow in the tropics worldwide, but they will forever remind me of my time here in Jakarta. My three year old is so enamored of coconuts that he shouts "COCONUT TREE!" every time he sees one as we drive around town. And yes he can tell a coconut from the hundreds of other types of palm trees here.

Misty Dawn said...

Gorgeous photos with fantastic colors! If you don't mind my asking, what camera do you use?

I love your blog header too, by the way.

Eve said...

Thanks for the break. The cold and snow are becoming really bo-o-oring!! Not to mention how hard it is to get outside. I'd like to sit and watch that turtle for a few hours.

Serena said...

Hibiscus, palm trees and sea turtles can all be found in my home country Malaysia. And hibiscus is our national flower! Thanks for sharing. :D

You wouldn't rather be in Michigan enjoying our 11 degree weather? We're expecting about 10 inches of snow tomorrow. It's going to be a winter wonderland!

Your photos are gorgeous.

Dottie said...

Wow! Beautiful photos. Never been to Hawaii... looks much more appealing than the blowing snow and ice that we have right now.

Betty said...

Thank you for posting those beautiful pictures. Spring will be here before we know it.

Thank you for visiting me today and leaving a comment. I hope you will visit often.

Jaime said...

Aah, Hawaii! Lovely piX ~ in stark contrast to my wintery scene. You interpreted the shot correctly (my kids' valiant effort to niX the impending meltdown). ThanX for visiting.

(eXcellent background tunes)

Patrick Belardo said...

Beautiful! I especially love the palm trees.

Rhonda said...

So nice of you to throw such beauty in the face of someone who lives in the dessert. No, really. Quite wonderful that you've caused me to think of another place I'd rather be...*giggling* Loved the music, extraordinatry fotos and appreciate so much your visit. Happy WW on Thursday ;)
