Aloha Friday v5

Nautie Friends!

I'm back in Bali (which feels blissfully familiar and easy compared to Nepal).  

I celebrated Aloha Friday exactly as it was meant to be celebrated - by doing absolutely nothing - and then eating.  

This also means there is no song for you....vintage instagram of Hilo Bay?  It'll have to suffice - not quite Halloween-y is it? 

(Also, there is absolutely no sign that Halloween exists here other than my Instagram. This suites me just fine.)

I hope you lovelies are enjoying your Friday wherever you find yourselves! 


Favorite Photo From Bali

This photo ended up being my favorite (as in I put it in my favorite pile because who can really choose a favorite?!).

My Mom and I were walking along the rice paddies when I realized we were perfectly silhouted over the bright green. 

So naturally I stopped....and we struck a pose.

I've got my skirt hiked up on one side with a palm tree on my left and my Mom's got her arms up vogue style. 

Mom and I strike a pose.

This is a scheduled post to keep you company in case I'm incommunicado while I'm Going Nomad!  Thanks for your understanding!  xoxo

Blue & White

My favorite color combination.  I've documented it several times here.  Like when I was in the Azores and found a beautiful blue and white church or, when I just posted a single photo of Mediterranean Blue.  Once, I even wrote about having the blues and then spotting some dolphins.

Sometimes (and maybe more times then I care to admit), I stand on the bridge wing and just take photo after photo of our bow wake crumbling into blue waters.  I literally have hundreds of archived photos of various bow wakes.  

There is something so soothing about an ever changing array of white against blue.

Crossing the Pacific (on September the 8th to be exact) - I did just that.  I stood on the bridge wing and let an endless array of blue and white soothe me as I snapped away.  They're not even all in focus and for some reason out of focus works for me.

It's criminal how many of my photos end up in a digital archive.

I hope these soothe you the way they soothe me.
