Hot Hazy Days in Hawaii

A  L  O  H  A !
" By all these lovely tokens 
September days are here, 
With summer's best of weather 
And autumn's best of cheer. "
                            Helen Hunt Jackson

Salt & Sea Spray are visible in the rays of the setting sun

Northern Bloggers are posting
 crisp blue skies. Soon 
we'll see their pumpkins, 
frost, flamboyant 
Autumn leaves. 

We feel the pleasure 
of our friends Down Under, 
as they enter Spring
and sing of her 
glories in flowers, 
birds and vistas.

But as Sun  departs
or rushes to you
she lingers over
Hawaii's Sub-Tropical

These are hot hazy days,
warmer than our 
Summer was.

Trade Winds are OFF
as we dream of breezy
sunny winter ahead!

These afternoons are 
best spent in the shade.

Surf to soothe 
at dawn and dusk!

Thank YOU
so much for visiting!
                       Fondly, cloudia

Shade can be soothing in steamy climates. Enjoy your hot hazy days my friend. Always a treat to pop in :)

Beautiful images.. I would love to be in Hawaii, enjoying the warm days.. Our summer seemed to be missing this year.. Lovely post, Cloudia! Have a happy weekend!

Jealous? No. but I sure do miss Summer, all three weeks of it, and the NOAA says it was the warmest summer so far---for the Western half of the mainland.

As for changing of the guards upon my leaves, just this morning one single tree has just a hint of change! Oh thank you dear leaves upon my trees, hang on! :)

Gotta say I'm a bigger fan of October than September, which can still be very hot here. But today is great. Cooler with a nice breeze.

Searching for a bit more sun myself and taking in the heat.

Shudder. Your hot and hazy days are beautiful to look at, but make me melt just thinking about them. I hope that refreshing breezes waft your way. Soon.

This heat is suffocating me. Art takes it a lot easier, but I need winter now.
