Island Adventures

The closest I got to sewing in the holidays was buying a cushion someone else sewed.

But I did have an island adventure that included taking every opportunity to point out the '5-O' (just like on TV),

visiting the aquarium,

watching filming of Hawaii 5-O at the hotel across the road (we only saw the extras),

following a 'combat wounded veteran',

seeing the green mountains, 

taking a bus trip through a macadamia farm,

learning a bit of fire dancing,

taking a boat trip on a giant fish pond in a tropical downpour,

learning more about growing pineapples,

subtly taking a photo of a dog in a pushchair while in a shop,

waiting for buses,

shopping for moonshine at Walmart (kidding),

cooking up farmers' market apple-bananas to go with our pancakes and ice-cream,

eating quite a few of my favourite biscuits,

seeing a few hula shows,

and these $700 shoes!

And annoyingly, eating breakfast on the lanai every morning with this view.

Now it's back to reality and perhaps some sewing this weekend.


  1. Haha, what an annoying trip! Welcome back :)

  2. How fabulous, and those shoes-swoon!
