It's good to be back, but now that garden really needs my attention. If only it would plant AND weed itself. The same goes for laundry.
This was a last minute trip (and an amazing deal) - due to Ty's medical conditions, that's the only kind of trip we take. When he was really sick, we didn't go anywhere together for a couple of years--one of us was always home with him. I think we've travelled more this year than we have in the past 18 years combined.
My side of the family (my parents, brother and sisters and spouses) is trying to plan a trip to New Zealand this Fall, and it would be really nice to go - especially since it's where my dad grew up. But it's so far away, it's hard to plan on it. I keep thinking something will come up with Ty and jinx the whole deal (and then I will have to watch him go through more pain and heartache). I hate that I'm superstitious that way.
Anyway, I was a little distracted (from thinking about the garden).
And for that matter, so was Mr. O.
Both by the scenery above
and below the surface of the ocean
The shoreline -
The aquatic life!
And all the color - EVERY where
Can you believe the scenery?
I love this shot.
Note the crew lifeboat drill
Hands down - the most beautiful part of our trip
Rain forest (those vines are actually roots from plants attached to the tree branches - who knew?)
Did I mention the sunsets?
And the food was to. die. for.
Anyone care to hazard a guess as to where we were?
