My short holiday to paradise. #Hawaii


First, I need to apologize for being absent this last while. I meant to leave a notice, telling you that I was going to be on a holiday for a week in Hawaii but then all the last minute craziness of getting books published and packing, scheduling blogs and editing kicked in and I ran out of time.
In case you're green with envy, I'm sorry but... it was a well-needed break. One I like to think I deserved. In any case, it certainly was greatly appreciated.


My favorite thing about Waikiki is the absolute loveliness of the place...
I know there are many places in the world that have wonderful views, we have a lot here in Canada. 


And there are other places that are warm also. (Okay so not so much in Canada - unless we're talking about the summer LOL!) Only it's not just the warmth but the wonderful ocean breezes to make the heat bearable that makes Waikiki special. 

I'm talking about a place where palm trees decorate the horizon and let a person know they're in a tropical climate. And one that has such gorgeous greenery everywhere one looks that it's hard to just walk anywhere in a hurry. 

I guess I need to mention there's one more important difference about Hawaii that
keeps bringing me back. It's something I notice the minute I step off the plane and out of the airport. The incredible smell of the island flowers that permeates the air grabs me every time I return, I just have to take a few minutes, close my eyes and let those memorable scents remind me that I'm back.


Okay - there IS one other thing I guess I need to mention that makes Waikiki a terrific place for a holiday. Jimmy Buffetts do make the best margaritas and Nacho stacks in the world!!!



***In case you're wondering whether there will be a book soon with Hawaii as the setting... what do you think??  :-)
