Impromptu Adventure

our own special 
light.  "

Most of my adventures
take place
in my own head
these days.

Routine can be 
comforting
when life has been
anything but -
Ye,t it's good
to shake things up
once in a while.

I drove to shop
in Hawaii Kai,
and the highway 
going back to Honolulu
looked like a 
parking lot.

On islands,
the main roads
are often coastal;
Not too many 
options.

But I decided
to make it an adventure
and continue around
the isle,
and come back
to town over 
the Pali Highway
through the 
Ko`olau mountains

H = Home, S= Shopping
P= Pali Highway

I chose an adventure
over a traffic jam.

Right choice!

I fell in love
with Oahu all over
again.

What a gorgeous day!
(Just sayin`)
& Sharing it with
YOU
is the best part.
Please keep safe
in Your adventures-

Toodle-OOO
       Warmly, cloudia

Definitely good to step out of the rut and into an adventure, sometimes, Cloudia! thanks for sharing.

Thanks, friends!

Friko said...

That’s exactly the sort of adventure I’d welcome any day.

Nothing like that available here though. Pretty scenery, yes, but rain to go with it.

I like the saying Evelyn Dunbar and a view of the first picture. Yours.

A great G. K. Chesterton quote. And it sounds like a nice mini-adventure in seeing things out of the usual.

As we say in LA, hang loose and rest easy, Cloudia! Let the good times roll.

Now that's my idea of fun! Lucky you, Cloudia.

A good way to break the routine. A little jog through the mountains.

The weather at your place is much better than here, although we should not complain.
