I am in Hawaii! My sister lives on the Big Island. I am here to help her celebrate her 60th birthday. This shot was taken from her lanai last night. It is SOOOO sweet here!

@clodagh smith: And I had no idea a few days ago that I would be here either! It was a spontaneous, last minute decision to surprise Susie! Maybe your thoughts helped to plant the seed!
