Tops of the Mountains

Salt Lake City, Utah

It was a gorgeous sunset, as we watched it set over the Oquirrh Mountains. If you look closely you can see an airplane that just took off from the Salt Lake Airport. Can you see it?

A Christmas Carol

Sandy, Utah

Last year we started a fun, Christmas Tradition, to take a different grandchild with us to Charles Dickens; A Christmas Carol.  This year it was at the new Hale Theatre and once again, it was wonderful!  Our grandson, who went with us, loved it.  I RELAXED and was all ready when the show began!

Winter Frost

Salt Lake City, Utah

We had a Winter Frost that lasted for a few days.  Frost covered everything.  I wanted to go outside and take a photo, but it was too cold.  I was so lucky that the frost last a few days, so I finally ventured outside and got some photos of it.

Blue Cardinal

Salt Lake City, Utah

Usually birds fly south for the winter, but after a recent snowfall I went outside to take some photographs of the snow and there were birds everywhere, flying, singing, chirping. They were all blue cardinals and they were very pretty. I hope they get where they need to be so they survive the winter!

So Hawaiian

Hanapepe, Kauai, Hawai’i

As we walked along the street in Hanapepe, I loved this scene with a bike, it seemed so Hawai’i with the Hawaiian shirts in the window, a palm tree and the outside plants.  Hanapepe is a charming, sleepy town that comes to life on Friday nights with food booths and lots of shopping.

Hanapepe Swinging Bridge

Hanapepe, Kauai, Hawai’i

When we were on Kauai last year, my sister and her husband found this awesome, quaint swinging bridge in Hanapepe.  It is a foot bridge that crosses over the Hanapepe River and links the old town of Hanapepe to the Hanapepe Valley.  It was originally built in the 1900’s as the only way for locals to cross the river.  In 1992, it was badly damaged by Hurricane Iniki and has since been restored and reinforced. It is used today by farmers and locals who need to cross the river, as well as, curious tourists.

Bundle of Trouble

West Valley City, Utah

Bundle of Trouble was written by Ruth and Nathan Hale and so in memory of them, this was the last show at the ‘old’ Hale Theater. It was awesome and this was the right place to RELAX before the show started. Do you like my Christmas socks?

Awesome

Salt Lake City, Utah

I went out onto our deck to get a photo of this gorgeous sunset and one of my grandson’s followed me out. He asked me if I was going to make this photo into one of my post-cards, so, I asked him what he thought and he replied, ‘It would be awesome’! I AGREE!

Seaweed, Rocks and Ocean

Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii

I love the contrast of these rocks, that are covered with seaweed, and the ocean behind.  If you look closely you can see surfers out in the waves.

Tree Tunnel

Maluhia Road, Kauai, Hawaii

The Tree Tunnel of Kauai is a row of Eucalyptus Trees that was planted approximately 150 years ago by the Scotchman, Walter Duncan McBryde.  Each time we drive to Po’ipu from Lihue, we drive thru the Tree Tunnel.  This particular day it was raining and you can see rain drops on the windshield of our car, I took this photo anyway!

Waves

Poipu, Kauai, Hawaii

I love watching waves. They are so ferocious with a new pattern as each wave comes in!
