Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Time To Relax

My favorite time to relax is at the beach or the lake. Laguna Lake is within walking distance of our home, but we have to walk up the hill. We usually drive, even though it’s only a three minutes’ drive. On this relaxing walk, I love to take photos of the ducks and geese.

There are several beaches not too far away. On weekends without work traffic, it takes about thirty-five minutes to get there. Sometimes my husband and I go. Other times, I joined a women’s group to go for the walk and breakfast. I especially love to watch the tidal waves filing in. I include the photos of the walk on Newport Beach.

A little further away, my husband and I like to go to Maui, Hawaii. We go there basically to relax. We have been there four times. It feels good when walking on the beach as the waves coming in and wet our feet. Our evening walk would go until sunset. Watching the sun goes down and the sky changes the colors is an amazing experience.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Repurpose

We frequently take our vacation in Maui, Hawaii. Maui is not a big island. We could casually go around the island in a few days, and still have plenty of time to walk on the beach and watch the sunset everyday. We got married on Makena Beach, so we visit that beach on every trip. Makena is not a sand beach, it has a lot of lava rocks instead. From Makena, we like to get on the Road to Hana. As soon as we get on the road, we could see the lava rocks on both side of the road. The local people were creative, they repurpose the lava rocks into walls for construction, protection, or decoration.

Maui, Hawaii is considered as our favorite travel spot since we had been there three times. We always stayed at Kihei which has less tourism.

The photos were taken from the same beach which is filled with lava rocks. During our last trip, the storm was on the way. Part of the sky showed rain clouds against the blue sky, whereas the beach is filled with lava rocks.
