Just so you know, I like the word vegetation. And I really like taking pictures of it. I love my Macro lens and Hawaii was an amazing place to take pictures of all kinds of growing things.

I think one of the neat things about traveling is seeing how God created the world all over. It couldn’t be more  different in Hawaii that it is in Southern Alberta. The colors everywhere. It all reminded me how powerful the creator is. And really how much of an artist HE is.

It reminds me of one of my favorite children’s songs.

“Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,


Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,


Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by our lilac tree,


I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heav’nly Father created for me.


He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.


He gave me my ears that I might hear, The magical sound of things.


He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him rev’rently


For all his creations, of which I’m a part. Yes, I know Heav’nly Father loves me.”


I am also glad that Regan (and Jodi and Mike) were willing to go slow as I took everything in with my eyes and my camera.



We also found this collection of cool fruit was awesome too sitting on a table at the farmers market. We missed most of the market cause we were off having adventures, but this was all sitting out on the table. We tried the fuzzy looking red ones.
