“Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.”  Denis Waitley

I took this shot from the beach at Hanalei Pier as the sun was setting over the Bali Hai Mountains (taken from the movie South Pacific which was filmed just north of here).  Such a beautiful and serene shot.  I had been playing around most of the afternoon with slow shutter speed shots under the pier.  When I finally popped out to see what Glen was up to – this is the scene I captured.  

Kind of takes your breath away eh?  And gives a person pause to think about where you are in life, where you’ve come from, where you are going . . . I have huge respect for the fact that the answer to those questions is different for each and every one of us.  For me what I know for sure is that every experience I’ve had in my life has created the person I am today.  

I am grateful for every one of those moments, good or bad.  I am determined going forward that in my experience of life . . . I am leaving positive footprints for others to follow, and leaving a trail of positive energy for others to be inspired as well.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”  C.S. Lewis

I am 60 years young.  I’ve had some pretty great experiences in my life, as well as some not so great.  But that’s life . . . and I create in my life the experience I want from it . . . no matter what “happens” to me.  

Right now . . . I’m sure enjoying this Hawaiian Experience!  

We were in Hanalei today just snooping around for some good photo opportunities.  I saw this old snag out in the middle of the mouth of the Hanalei River and thought it looked like a great 365 photo op.  I carefully set my camera up on the tripod, dialed in the settings I wanted, set the self-timer and away I went to get in position.  I had Glen standing out there to set my focal point.  However, I just couldn’t get out there fast enough.  The current was strong enough that it was hard walking against it.  So this was the best I got.  We did have the pocket wizards with us, but they were in the car at the other end of the beach.  By time we were done running back and forth here . . . I was just kinda done with the whole process.  Time to move on to something else!  I kind like this shot anyway . . . Glen waiting so patiently for me while he is watching the camera take the shots . . . and it’s a lovely view back to Hanalei and the mountains.  

Just another beautiful day in Paradise!

“Lumahai Beach, or South Pacific Beach . . . This beach was made famous by the movie South Pacific where Mitzi Gaynor “washed that man right out of her hair”!” www.hawaiianweb,com

We’ve arrived at our vacation destination for the next 25 days – Kauai, Hi.  The next few days will be settle in time . . . taking it easy and getting adjusted to the two hour time change.  (We’re two hours behind the West Coast).  This beach is one of our favorite hangouts on the North Shore – one of many!  We will be visiting and discovering many more I hope!  

Ahhhh . . . time for a Mai Tai!
