We went on a much needed holiday to Hawaii earlier this month and just returned home feeling refreshed, already missing the scents of this beautiful island.

a glimpse into our days during this trip..

walking on lava rocks

sandy shores

surprising showers 

but mostly sunny skies

  dusty hikes and shaved ice cones

tropical flowers and friendly people at every turn..

Our old camera is reaching its retirement, so Kalyan took pictures on his iPhone.. more to share and write about our time on Big Island. Nice to be home before these autumn colors faded, hope you are enjoying pumpkin treats and snuggling warmly under cosy quilts ( ' v ' )

What glorious weather you had, Pratima! I love those quick showers - they cool you off and you're dry before you know it! Looks like you went up to the edge of the volcano, too! I'm so happy you had a wonderful time!

I think you've captured the true laid back images of Hawaiian style. Your photos brought back happy memories of our 3 years in Hawaii. With it being 32* this morning I feel the warmth of the Hawaiian sun.
