Fun Fotos for Hawaiian #TreeSquares

Are you having fun with Becky B’s #TreeSquares. Yes? Me, too, along with a few other challenges, too.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home, which is Prescott, AZ and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree from my travels. Cee shared a photo for her CFFC and we are to find photos with some of the same topics. This photo is of the small grape vineyard with hay fields. Possible topics: children’s play area, haystack, grape vines, trees, green blue, red, stairs, lines, field, trees, green, tan,


Heading for Hawaii

The nice thing about virtual travel is that you can go from the East Coast of the United States all the way to Hawaii in the click of a computer screen.

Here is a warning for Natalie the Explorer as we share a cup of coffee on her site. None of this happened this week except for playing with the photos using Bridge. Unlike Natalie who went out and photographed some wonderful examples of public art this week, I did the photography for this post in my relaxing home office in Prescott.

Ka’anapali Beach

So, here we are in beautiful Maui, HI. You are looking at a #treesquare “foto” exhibiting: green, tan, trees, and lines. The person is thrown in as an extra. She didn’t make much working as an extra. In fact, I would hazard a bet that she didn’t even realize she was working and not in heavenly, HI gazing contentedly out at the beach.

In this fun foto, you know from the tree, that you are not in the boat, but on land with a bit of green for company. You wish that you were taking the picture from the vantage point of the boat, trailing your feet in the warm ocean, looking for whales.

You are feeling so sorry for yourself that you’re not on the boat that you snap this picture while drinking Elderflower Liqueur at Mama’s Fish House on the East Side of Maui.

Outside you see trees, green, tan, an aqua green ocean playground dotted with adult toys. There’s a line outside the window, that if you were feeling more agile rather than a little tipsy, you could walk as a tightrope in a children’s playground.

Instead you smile contentedly at your husband as you sample the cold cream of asparagus soup and wait for your entrees of wild caught Ahi with Hana lime and coconut milk and Mahi Mahi, sautéed with garlic, white wine, capers, and mushrooms caught by Joe Hobson along the shores of the Kuau Cove. You want to eat slowly and save room for Chocolate Martini Chocolate Liqueur, Créme de Cacao, Stolichnaya Vanilla Vodka for dessert.

I vote the for trees in Hawaii as the best so far on the spiral from Prescott to the outer ends of the world. Where are your favorite trees?

Have a wonderful weekend. Don’t forget about relaxing with a quote or two at Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays.

At the time of this revision #10, Cee’s PPAC #6 is up and running. Join Natalie in sharing your photographs of the amazing art you see freely from your street or sidewalk.

  1. Perfect capture of the boat framed in the branches. And I think I would be happy to I have the vantage point on land. The boat and whales would be nice, and yet watching the day go by with a cocktail, beautiful dinner, and great company is a thumbs up any day of the week. (Cheers to coffee and Natalie too. ) Beautiful photos. Donna

    • Maybe, John. I’m ready to go again, but I want to wait until it’s cold here. We are having some monsoons, as you have heard, I’m sure. Vince was going to go to Scottsdale yesterday, and they got almost 4 inches of rain. I’m so glad he stayed here. 🙂

  2. Marsha, I enjoyed going back to Hawaii virtually with you today. I can feel the breeze and visualize the beautiful scenery. Dinner at Mama’s Fish House sounds divine. Thank you for linking up with #weekendcoffeeshare.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
