Usually after Valentines Day I start to really get excited about our spring tropics vacation which we take almost every year sometime in April or May. But things just did not work out for 2009, so home bound we are and I am blue, not being able to look forward to spending time on my favorite Hawaiian island--Kona or more properly named The Big Island. This is one of my favorite pictures (I even have it on my as my computer wallpaper most of the time). It overlooks a small bay near Keauhou. That is a Sherton Resort in the distance. We rented a condo there one year and this was our breathtaking view from the lanai.
And this is my fave flower--the plumeria! In fact to make myself feel better, I ordered myself some Plumeria bodywash and lotion direct from Hawaii (and its made in Hawaii too)So it's just dreaming of the warm humid climate of Hawaii this year for me! We are planning a Southern Carribean cruise with friends for 2010, so Kona will wait until 2011.
