As I mentioned in my last post our recent visit to Hawaii afforded us, due to my brother-in-laws careful planning, a beach house directly on the beach. I could not believe our good fortune when it was apparent that the Pacific ocean would serenade us for our entire visit. Two elements of nature fascinate me and they are large bodies of water and the sun and how the sun interacts with the water. I simply do not become weary of watching both.
There is something mesmerizing about the vastness, movement, and majestic splendor of the ocean. During our week-long adventure we were able to visit many points on the island of Oahu with the three ocean picture settings of; the north shore, which is noted for it’s extremely large waves and rocky shore, Ewa beach, which provided me with a limitless number of digital photos, and finally Waikiki beach. I remember my first camera which was a Big Swinger Polaroid camera that I received for Christmas when I was a boy and now marvel at the visual clarity and seemingly limitless photo taking opportunity of the current generation of digital cameras. Photos are really a bit of magic in our all to fast-moving lives where we can for a moment stop time and remember where we have been.
The North Shore.
Our Hawaiian cousins.
As 2014 draws to a close I hope that each of you enjoy good health and happiness. Let us try to remember that the truly valuable things in our lives money did not buy. Is God a capitalist…or would he like for us to learn a better way while we are sojourners on this beautiful Earth?
