It's paradise!

We have returned home safely from our Hawaiian vacation. We had the BEST time!!! It truly is like paradise! Gorgeous scenery everywhere you look...lush green vegetation, colorful flowers, all the beautiful shades of blue of the ocean were amazing...and the people...soooo nice! I already want to go back! Especially coming home to Michigan, when right now everything is drab...not a green leaf in sight, unless I count pine trees, but you know what I mean. Now I am really looking forward to spring when everything will come back to life and seem to turn green over night. Hurry spring!!! I don't have any new stamped creations, but I do have a few photos to share. I took almost 800 photos while we were there! These are a few of my favorites.

Sunset on Poipu Beach, Kauai
Rainbow over Wiamea Canyon, or the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" in Kauai
Wanini Beach, near Hanalei, Kauai
Kilauea Point Lighthouse

Me at the beach ;-) Actually this is a Hawaiian Monk Seal on Poipu Beach...they come up to rest during the day. We saw several of them while we were there.
We saw so many whales while we were was so cool!
We saw lots of dolphins too...they are so cute and fun to watch!
Beautiful lava rock formations and arches...somewhere along the Road to Hana in Maui.
Me & my wonderful hubby on our lanai before we went to a luau. This trip was to celebrate our upcoming 25th wedding anniversary. (which isn't til August, but we wanted to go while we were having bad weather in Michigan.) With the 6 hour time difference between Michigan and Hawaii, I'm just getting back into my regular routine...boy that's been tough! In the next couple days I should have something stamped to share with you. Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations on your 25th anniversary. My hubby and I just returned from Hawaii too ( but we were on Oahu) celebrating our 5th anniversary :) It's really a paradise. I think next time we'll go to Maui.

Love the pictures!
