The one about the beach

We spent the last week in Hawaii. Neither of us had been to Hawaii before. Rob chose to visit the Big Island for it's volcanoes and the observatory on Mauna Kea.
The best day was the afternoon on the beach. The Big Island has very few white sand beaches. This was one of them. I got bumped around by the waves pretty good and am still sore in spots, including a sprained thumb. Darn ocean filled up my suit with over half a cup of sand while it knocked me over and pushed me to shore. It was very fun though; playing in the ocean in January.
We sat on our towels and relaxed. I drew in my sketchbook, desperately missing my art supplies at home. It has been so long since I drew anything freehand. I need to do that more often.

FAB-U-LOUS! Lucky duckie.. I am so jealous. I have never been to Hawaii, yet! I am glad you had a nice time and hope you got a nice "break" too.

I LOVE the big island...perhaps because it is less popular and quite unique! I'm glad you had fun, sand and all!

You were on the cost line where I spent the first 16 years of my life! What a wonderful trip you must of have! I am sure all the contrast of colors and natural elements have effected your artist scents!
