Aloha, good morning!
I have lots to tell of my trip here on the Island of Kauai. Everyday day but two I have taken a long walk. Yesterday I must have walked at least five miles. Here are pictures of my journey. So many things to photograph and I have tried to narrow it down and also to put as a slide show. My first pictures are of a self portrait challenge that Misty has challenged readers of her blog to. I may post more of these later in the day but so far here are mine:
Last week I took a couple of classes from Marionette in Waimea with my friend Connie. One day a silk painting class. Believe it or not all these years I've dyed silk scarves I had never tried silk painting. I enjoyed the process and will probably do some more of this. Marionette has an easy technique. The second day we took a water color class. Marionette has posted about this class on her blog . You wouldn't believe the 93 year old man who was another student. He was a sweetheart and a very talented painter!
The weather has been unusual for the Island. More cloudy and rainy than ever. When I was here in Dec. I only had one sunny day. This time has been better but still rather cloudy and windy. Rain is predicted to start tonight and get worse on the weekend. I am leaving Friday and I am hoping things are not too bumpy as I dread turbulence on planes!
I'm off for my walk now and here is a sample of the path I take.
