Trade Wind Happy

A  L  O  H  A !
 When the Trade Winds blow,
 it makes everyone feel young
like this fellow enjoying 
a ride in the back 
of an open vehicle








How wonderful to work 
high on a roof with the
 Ko`olau Mountains watching











Surf is up too!

" If you can spend 
a perfectly useless afternoon 
in a perfectly useless manner, 
you have learned how to live. "
                                       Lin Yutang

Blow away Volcanic haze!
Come freshening North East Winds
bring the scent of far off cold
and open ocean-

Clear the skies
and open our hearts
to Delight!

Bright Sun
Glinting waves
Fresh visitors.

Thank YOU
for visiting today!
Hope YOU are feeling it too-
                    Warmly, cloudia

I love the Lin Yutang quote. I wish it were easier to relax and not feel guilty about spending a perfectly useless afternoon. :)

Aloha Cloudia, I live for Lin Yutang's quote. I just read it the other day...one of those truly wise quotes. Enjoy your day of sights, sounds and something that sizzles!

Definitely got to love a good breeze. I've always read of the trade winds. Such an exotic sounding thing to my ears.

My mind wanders there in my Jimmy Buffet moments.

An afternoon spent doing nothing is not necessarily wasting time if you are experiencing joy!

Not sure how happy he looks to be in the back of that truck (but that may just be the light). Would love to put Lin Yutang's quote into (in)action today…
Thanks so much for sharing this happy beauty.

I think I'd rather go surfing than work on a roof. (And I don't even know how to surf!)
