Cool & Easy

Good Wednesday everyone!

I hope you don’t mind that I share a few more stories from Hawaii.

On 4th of July, we were blessed to have witnessed the Turtle Independence Day Celebration at the Mauna Lani Bay.  Since 1989,  in cooperation with Oahu’s Sea Life Park, this resort has raised and released over 200 honu – Hawaiian green sea turtle – into the wild.

The 6 youngsters released this year weighed between 17 to 24 pounds.  An adult turtle can grow to 3 feet in length & can weigh up to 450 pounds.  The Hawaiian green turtle is protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.


Now to my Red, White & Blue outfit…

When on vacation, I prefer clothes that are cool & easy, light & breezy…but not too cheesy.  This rhyming is easy, but making me queasy. I guess I’m a poet but didn’t know it!! LOL! 😆

Okay, I’m back!  Btw, although not visible, I am rockin’ a red belt.

Thank you so much for reading!

  3. Love your pictures….especially the young sea turtles being released into the sea. We saw some fabulous turtles when we went snorkeling in Maui, they were so BIG – just magical. You look great as always!

  4. just catching up on all of your fabulous hawaii pics and posts
    i am turning green with envy over here!!
    hope you are recovering quickly from such a wonderful vacay

  5. What a fun ceremony to witness on the 4th…freedom for the turtles! I’m also a fan of comfy for travel…it also has to pack nicely. Do you take a little steamer in your suitcase or how do you keep your linen from being major wrinkly when you take it out of the suitcase?

    • Hi Becky!
      It was very special. The ceremony, the dance and the chanting before the release was interesting as well.
      I did use the iron provided at the hotel for some but I don’t know why I even bothered….it wrinkled as soon as I put them on! That’s ok, I love wrinkled linen!

  6. Hi Jeannie, the event of releasing the turtles back into the wild is so meaningful and you are so lucky to be part of it! Kudos to the Hawaiians efforts in the conservation of these endangered species.
    Looking at your posts makes me wana book for a beach holiday soon!

  7. Have really enjoyed the vacation pictures — and you do look perfectly comfortable in the vacation wear! i’ve always been afraid of linen because of wrinkles, but there is NOTHING more comfortable!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
