Still in paradise

Its tough to take, but here I still be. Today my dad and I went to Spencer beach- it was lovely in the water- but a tad windy so we moseyed on.
We visited Mahukona where there oce was an old railroad from the plantation days.
I went into the bathroom there and saw this adorable tutu bathing suit for a Keiki 
(hawaiian for child) hanging on a hook...

Speaking of tutu here is Dad-we call him "tutu-papa" (tutu is hawaiian for grandparent)

Conveniently his name is John!
I have to admit- I keep feeling like time is going too fast and  find myself dwelling on the inevitable end of my time here- and just then I saw this message ...

And here is a "whimsical" farm painting-still unfinished- but I will share it with you anyway!

I'm enjoying my 'stacation' and visiting HI with YOU! Your Dad seems like a hoot! Looks like a LOST vista - seen any of the characters? xoxo This painting will be a 'two thumbs up' when you finish it!
