Oh Delwyn,Ho'omaika'i,Congratulations, how beautiful your son's (and new daughters) wedding.What a relief the tsunami never materialized, but how scary for all of you.I am a bit envious. Love Kauai. LOVE Hawaii.enjoy!
All the photos are great but that first one is striking! That looks like a really huge beach in the last!
Even under the rainy sky and mist, it is a stunning place. :)
So grey, yet, so beautiful.
delwyn the shades of grey are as rich a palette as the rainbow when seen through the eyes of a poet, an artist. these are beautiful. steven
Beautiful in every weather. The mood set by the tones of grey and the magnificent mountain forms is soothing. Thank you for sharing a moment on Kauai.
beautiful words and images.
Beautiful pics, the second one especially.
Delwyn, I love seeing the magnificent landscape where you are right now combined with poetry written in another time and place. It illustrates the circle of life, and, literally, shows how our experiences in life are poetry themselves. Thank you.
Oh Delwyn, what a perfect setting for a wedding... or anything! I know you are enjoying your visit. My favorite priest in the world is at St. Michael & All the Angels Episcopal Church in Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii. I had to peek & see if he was performing the ceremony.
Hello LoriI see a fellow kauai lover...thanks for your kind thoughts and yes it was a little dramatic...we hadn't seen the news of the earthquake on TV the previous night so were oblivious to the unfolding story and when those sirens went off we were gripped with fear...But it was the most perfect day weather wise and if you know Kauai you will remember that those days are not consistent...the next day was stormy and rainy as my misty pics show. So it all worked out well...and the bride didn't have time to get nervous, and those family members preparing food didn't have time to over cater as could have been the case - we whipped up salads and BBQ'd meats right after the ceremony!Happy days
Hi LoracI love that photo too because it reminds me of Japan so much and also those lovely Chinese paintings like the one at my header.Happy days
P.S. LoracHanalei Bay is a sweeping arc of beautiful beach, when I took the photo the tide was slipping way out leaving a wide swathe of sand.
Hi Amyyou are rightI think that this place is equally as beautiful in sun or rain...because the waterfalls run down the mountain faces...and the sun sneaks through in crepuscular rays...Happy days
Hi MartinI think Steven expressed that well- that greys can offer variety of colour and mood and be just as moving as colours.Happy days
Hi Stevenyou put that well...but I think that all it takes is time to stop and look with the eye of an admirer...or a lover of nature...thanks for calling in..Happy days
Hi BonnieI'm glad that you see the beauty in my grey days too Bonnie...I walk this bay alone each morning both for exercise and as a meditation...it clears my head and calms the mind and replenishes my soul...Happy days
Hello and welcome Laurait is nice to have a new face...I will pop over your way after my walk...Happy days
Hi Ellenthose waves spray from Puffs snout as soon as the sea blows up a little creating a dramatic display...Happy days
Hi JenniferI have thought those same things Jennifer as I look through my haiku collection and when writing haiku...every generation feels similar emotions and expresses themselves in their own ways but we can find common ground and shared emotions...I like your idea that we can see our experiences as poems of life...Happy days
Hello LizzyThe kids were married by a friend who has been mates with my son since they were 5 years old.Over 30 family and friends made the big trip up from Australia to take part in the wedding so it was a very special day for all involved...and that tsunami evacuation really bonded us all together in a shared drama and experience that will remain vividly in our memories for life...Happy days
I'm soaking it all in. Never been to Hawaii.
You do Kauai proud, Delwyn!Glad you are here with us in Hawaii, and that your family is happy & well.Aloha, Friend!Comfort Spiral
congrats, and enjoy your Hawaii vacation!
Hello RosariaWell I am glad I can share my views of Kauai -in this beautiful state of Hawaii, with you ...Happy days
Hi CloudiaI'm glad you approve...it is always interesting to see how someone views and presents your home to the world...thanks for your kind wishesHappy days
Hi there Tomthank you for stopping by with your kind wishesHappy days
Some of my greatest memories along the shore of Lake Superior are the ones with the heavy fog. As my wife and I sat painting a scene in the fog, the sky suddenly cleared and we found ourselves sitting a hundred yards from a large land form. You beach area is so beautiful and it would be refreshing to walk there daily. I am glad Hawaii finished well.
love the grey stormy days with sea and mountains (so long as I am dry and safe) but how fortuitous that the wedding day was so blue and sunny!enjoy the rest of your stay in Hawaii.
Hi Larrythe mist can be like a mysterious shroud can't it?It is a great walk, 1/2 is easy walking - I save that til the end, and the other 1/2 is heavy loose coral sound, which makes walking hard but good for exercise...Thanks for your kind remarks - the day was just perfect...Happy days
Hi Violetwe were determined to have the wedding on tsunami day knowing that the next day was to be rainy.Walking in the drizzle is ok here Violet because it isn't too cold...and the rain...well I just think I'll change when I get home...Happy days
I love a misty day, Delwyn - your photos are marvelous.
