The Tempest Boat

The Tempest Boat

This was used in the new movie of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, filmed partly here on the Big Island.  The small boat harbor was closed off for several days …small boat harbor   rrb2-009  Not far away, the big cruise ships &  tugboats criss-cross with sailing canoes & kayaks…   rrboats-022  rrboats-0281  rrboats-0321 twbdrbsnow-025  twbdrbsnow-009  twbdrbsnow-0121  rrboats-0301  A few miles down the shoreline, kayaks brave the surf at Leleiwi…pics-7-003

These images are my gifts to the world

As I love living here

& seeing the beauty all around me every day

I also love being able to share

in this new &  unexpected way

a glimpse of the wonders abounding in paradise

(a fragment of the daily adventure)
