Photo du jour: Extinct volcano {+award}

{For the August Break: Photographed on Oahu, Hawaii}
I wasn't going to post this because of the wonky angle, but oh well! Koko Crater has a great hiking trail and features in old Hawaiian myths (though the one I know is a bit too, er, naughty to post :)).

Also, before I completely pass out, I wanted to give a shout-out and BIG thank you to Stacey at Design Addict Mom for being so sweet and passing along a fun blog award to me just moments earlier, just after I put up this photo. (Yes to fun things!)

I've been devouring her gorgeous design blog (please do have a look around, if you haven't yet!) - it's just a lovely moment I like to take for myself amidst unpredictable workdays (which is what an amazing blog does so well!) Thank you, Stacey, for the blog inspiration & beauty -- so grateful you've enjoyed mine! A full response to those fun questions is coming up, promise! (And here's to a full night's sleep all around! :))
~ Meantime, wishing everyone a fun, wonky weekend! ~

double yes to fun things!

I love the wonky angled picture. I will be adding the Koto Crater trail to my list of things to do next time I am on Oahu. Looks so beautiful!

Great pic! Now sure how you managed to get it all so clear -- from a speeding car? Or in danger of being run over by one? bb

Stacey said...

That photo is so gorgeous that it doesn't look real! I'm sipping on my coffee( i need the caffeine). Thanks for the shout out my friend. Kisses.

Nicole said...

Oh, man! Koko Crater looks like a BEAUTIFUL hiking trail! I've never heard of it before, but i'll be sure to keep it in mind for the next time I visit Hawaii.

Hi Meghan - agree on *double* the fun! Thanks & it'd be great if you could try the trail (it is an old military path!)

Hi Kat - haha, well you know how hard it is to do anything when speeding along Kalanianaole Hwy!! :) Thanks and have a great wkd!

Hi Signe - thanks so much, I love your images a lot! (I don't even know about the bloglovin thing, I'm so tech-UNsavvy! :))

Hi Kirsty - thanks so much! Have a great wkd!

Hi Bombay Beauty - that stretch of road in Hawaii is definitely NOT a good spot to pause for photos! It is a very early AM shot, so not yet traffic rush hour :)

Hi Stacey - hahaaaa! Oh my gosh, I just had to chuckle out loud. (I'm on my 4th cup, but it's not doing very much for me! ;-)) Thank you SO MUCH for thinking of me, and also I'm SO SORRY I was sleep-deprived myself and incoherent last night (forgive me!) I promise you a better (PROPER) posting-response soon! Thanks so MUCH, you know how much I enjoy your beautiful blog, so I'm so humbled you thought of mine.

Hi Nicole - thanks so much! The trail is pretty cool (an old military one), and I hope you get a chance to enjoy!

Hi Justine - thanks and I'm sorry I probably had Paris tips on things you already know! :) Love your Aug Break photo today, the old made beautiful :)

Hi Style, She Wrote - :) thanks so much & enjoy your weekend too!

Hi Alternative Wife - thank you and hope your wkd is ab-fab as well! :)

shopgirl said...

I agree with everyone Jude! It's awesome the way it is. It looks like you took the photo at an angle on purpose.

I heave a big sigh every time I see you put up a photo of Hawaii. I love Hawaii...I've been there twice in my life and I always wonder what it would be like to live there.

xoxo
