Today is National Hawaii Day.
Unfortunately all of my pics of Hawaii are old and nondigital. But I thought a beach scene will be reminiscent of my vacation in paradise...
Gotch your back, I have a 'FEW' LOL
If I was at Mom's condo I could show you hundreds since it's one of the places we lived. As it is, I'm on a break at work. So here's a volunteer that made a stand of Veronica into a cute posey.

fran, have you ever read The Aloha Quilt?
Grandson enjoying his tour of duty in Hawaii!
Coming to an end in Oct, as he'll spend rest of his time in VA.
I have been to Hawaii twice, but it was quite a few years ago. It's a beautiful place and when I lived in California, it was an easy trip. It is a far piece and very expensive once you get there but it is simply beautiful! I learned to snorkel on a vacation there and that was great fun. Since none of my Hawaii pictures are available digitally, I will share a California beach picture.
Was looking for one of a sea arch. I can't find it in the mess that is on my computer.
View from condo last time we were there. Loved morning coffee on the lanai. Sigh.
No Hawaii, no beach scene or pretty flowers. No artistic talent either. Just me and my lap comforter that comforted me all day yesterday after the news of the death of my 'special' sister-in-law. Tomorrow is the annual family reunion. We will honor her by going ahead with this family gathering. She would insist that we do so.
(((lgmd))) I'm sorry to hear this. I lift my beverage along side you all.
Lgmd_gaz, sorry for your loss.
The flowers were amazing:
I'm so sorry, lgmd...sending you thoughts of strength and comfort in you time of sorrow.
I'm so sorry for your loss, lgmd. And glad you have some comfort.
My deepest sympathy for you and your family.
Since I don't have any Hawaii pictures readily available, I am posting a few of my oldest granddaughter. She is so gorgeous. Can't believe she is 28 already.
I used to drive her crazy taking pictures of her, I was so glad when I got my first digital camera and could take tons of pics.
lgmd....so sorry for your loss. Your lap buddy sure looks comfy.
