Island Paradise

Is there anywhere in the world more beautiful than Kauai?  Well, it might surprise you to know that I just vetoed my old framed Kauai photos and replaced them with Costa Rica.  But it is not so much as Costa Rica has a leg up on Kauai as much as I'm completely running out of wall space.  And our Kauai trip was many moons ago.  In fact, I had to scan in these photos.  I took these before we had a digital camera.  So I may be saying goodbye to gazing at these travel photos on a daily basis.  But at least I can share them with you today.  The top photo is a taro field set against a mountain backdrop.

The Coconut Coast.

Norfolk pine.

Bamboo

 A peek at the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

Inn Paradise.  

Old Hawaii.

 The majestic Na Pali coast. 

Now you may or may not favour my new travel pics that replaced Kauai in this frame.  But a girl has to do what a girl has to do.  Or maybe I need a bigger house??????

Tough! Two beautiful paradises to choose from. I am not feeling too sorry for you, Sharon. Your Hawaii pictures are simply gorgeous, though. :-)

Don't move Kauai!!

My husband and I honeymooned there almost 6 years ago, I am dying to return one day. I just adored it!

I need to get out more often, but at least I can travel vicariously through your gorgeous photos!

I'm sure you remember when I went to Kauai several months ago. It might be my favorite place. Great photos Sharon!
