A friend of mine sent me a link to her husband’s fantastic scenic photos taken during their recent trip to Hawaii. He wanted to see my photos. Ummm. I don’t think they will stack up to his. I’m finding that I don’t get the same kind of photos when hanging out with a toddler. I have cute toddler pictures, but not too many of the nature shots…at least so far.The potential for wildlife photography began with turkeys walking down the road in front of the house where we are staying, but that is my only wildlife photo.
The plan for the day was to spend some time at the beach and visit with my father-in-law and his wife, who have lived here for several years. First things first. An island girl has to have her nails painted… …and then stay out of the house until the polish dries.On the way to the beach.
Stopping to smell the flowers.Kirby gets a good view of the ocean.We discover that she doesn’t like the feel of sand on her feet. It’s hard to get in the water if you won’t walk in the sand. The water was a bit cool at the start and Kirby decided that it really wasn’t for her. While Mom and Dad swam…Kirby was happier in the safety of the lounge chair, although I walked the beach with her quite a bit too.After the beach trip we met up with my father-in-law and others to see the Macadamia Nut Company.One of many special nut flavors.Photos at the gift shop.
Back to the house for naps and then dinner with the family including my oldest son and DIL who arrived that afternoon.
