First morning to wake up on Huahine (and I woke up at 4:00 AM). Yesterday is a bit of a dream (including the magic Super Bowl) here in the tropics.
Here is a little time lapse I shot at dawn. I spent 46 minutes standing on a ledge making sure my tripod was stable (one frame every five seconds with HDMotion on the iPhone). I am just getting acclimated to the climate, the ambiance, the heat, the feeling of this place. The title of this post is not original; instead, a line from a Stephen Sondeim tune (Follies). We walked into town before 6:00 AM for our once a day visit to the Super Fare (what Susan Christian has termed “the best supermarket in the world”). We left with long beans, two turquoise “noodles” for lagoon water aerobics and general lolling, two hum bau, a slice of local pate, a small bunch of bananas, some local cherry tomatoes, some local honey, some muesli and some garbanzo beans.
More soon of course, but this first post (in situ) is for my Marilyn.
I am going to share this one on Facebook but generally will not be using that venue to share my blog this year so if you want to hear from the Beach Bum with a Camera, please follow my blog. Just click that follow button in the side bar. Easy to opt in, easy to opt out.
Actually that was last Monday. Rain is slowing, just came from church in Maeva. I will post a recording later as the singing was beautiful.
Looks as if the wind and rain have passed. It’s been lovely here today….a soft, light snow and ice floes on the bay. Love seeing you at work!!!!
o, the clouds!
Beautiful Sally, thank you. Thank you for reminding me each time how very special Huahine is and how blessed we are to breathe her in every day and every night. My love comes riding to you both atop the those gentle waves.
How lovely Sally. to see and read of your tropical paradise. It truly warms me in here in freezing, snowy New York. “The Sun Comes Up”, I think of you!! I love that song, and I knew it was a line from a Broadway show. and I will be doing just that. Thanks for the info. Love you both!
