Late Saturday Randomness

Below are a few photos from my recent vacation to the island of Maui.

This tree knows how to protect itself:

Here is a picture of its trunk close up:

Doesn’t this beach look like a foot print?

Following is a view from up-country, the land at the higher elevations heading toward the crater of Haleakalā (House of the Sun):

Such beautiful flowers from the Enchanting Floral Gardens near Kula:

I went on vacation, and now I find myself not so motivated. Unfortunately, I found this article after my vacation instead of before I left for Maui. I actually was catching up on my blog reading and was perusing Literanista when I stumbled upon a link to the article.

A friend of mine is in NYC visiting family and he was able to go see Rafa beat González today at the U.S. Open. Due to all of the rain, this match was a continuation from the night before last! They are now finally getting a few more matches in late!

Speaking of rain, it has rained for two days here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex and over much of Texas. Friends in the Hill Country and south Texas are celebrating as they have been in drought conditions for a while. Rain, glorious rain!

    Those are some of the coolest pictures I’ve ever seen! I love the one of the tree trunk! That is so amazing! Well, I’ve never been to Hawaii but I never even heard of such a tree! And the flowers are just gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing these pictures!

    Thanks for the kudos, Jill. That tree trunk is probably my most favorite, too! I can’t believe I didn’t write the name of the tree down! I will have to search for it . . .
