We’re home! The last two weeks were absolutely wonderful! Our first visit to Hawaii and it did NOT disappoint!
Our second week (post cruise) was spent on the Big Island, at a resort located on the Kohala Coast…northwest side of the island. It’s about 20 min. north of Kona Airport, simply known as South Kohala. The area consists mostly of black & rust lava fields, a result of a Hualalai volcano eruption some centuries ago. The resorts here look like green oasis among lava rocks. An extreme contrast, to say the least…

The resort grounds.
Checking out the large resort complex & burning off a few calories!
First night dinner outfit…a simple white linen occasion dress. Nothing I could put on could ever come close to this gorgeous background.
Al fresco dining at its finest….
the view from our table…priceless!

I’m liking up with Patti for Visible Monday and Jill for Monday Mingle. Hop over to check out the ladies.
Thank you for visiting!

Really beautiful photos Jeannie, so glad you are back. It is true, that sometimes the background is all the decoration we need. 🙂
Oh yes! I concur! It’s going to be difficult to top the beauty of Hawaii.

“Simple & easy”…my vacation wardrobe motto.
Welcome home 😉
All the beatitude of God for man to take pleasure and be inspired… to be responsible of mama nature is impossible to deny!
Absolutely!! Amen!! 🙂
A beautiful place, spectacular scenery. Your white dress is gorgeous. If you’re at home, soon recover your outfit?
Thank you Josep!
Do you mean do more outfit posts? Haha. I’ll try. I have a few more outfits from Hawaii then back to my usual. Okay?
Pardon my English. I meant to return to see your outfits more often. I mean?
You are gorgeous anywhere and I love that verse and Hawaii. Just came back from So. Dakota and the Badlands and I thought of that same verse–God’s handiwork is awesome whether in the desert canyons or the beauty of Hawaii.
Ah, thank you!!
Amen!! I agree with you!! His works are all around us…just have to stop and appreciate. Thanks you for your very sweet comment.
Wow, what beautiful pictures! Looks like you had an amazing time. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Thank you Joni!
It was one of the best vacations we’ve taken. We”ve checked off “visit Hawaii” from our bucket list. 🙂
Unbelievable. Not sure which is more gorgeous…you or Hawaii.
Well, now I DO love ya!! 🙂
Wow…beautiful. I definitely want to get there sometime too!
You should…at least once. It is beautiful!
It is paradise! Thank you for sharing some of your pictures with Visible Monday, Jeannie.
Yes it is. I’m glad I could share and thanks for hosting!
It’s a perfect dress for this setting. I love the photo of the bit of green against the lava fields.
I did, too! I had no idea how that little plant was surviving among the lava rocks….the first word I thought of was “perseverance!”
beautiful, peaceful…………..God put a little beauty on that island,,,,,the geography and the person!!!!
Oh Judy, you know how to make me smile. Thanks sweetie!! You’re so good for my ego! 🙂
