Haleakalā, or "house of the sun", rises above sea level 10,023 feet. It's almost unearthly to walk upon the volcanic sand--Martian red and vast in contrast to the clear azure sky. Craggly terrain, mostly barren yet alive in some odd way. Something inside you comes to life here on such a massive volcano early in the morning on a tropical island.
Instant Hawaiian perfection... carried on the breeze and breathed in completely
It's really hard not to be happy in Hawaii. What is it about the ocean that allows us to be open to more beauty, more hope, more laughter and more love?

Just a half an hour from El Port de la Selva, we discover another little paradise--Cadaques. The childhood home of Salvador Dali is painted with golden sunsets and perfectly carved beaches. As we stroll along the water, the twinkling magic of this place comes to life.
Three hours north of Barcelona, we find El Port de la Selva, a quaint & friendly Catalonian fishing town. The temperatures finally cool and the ocean breeze welcomes us with open arms. Ahhhhhh...
|I share a crepe filled with fig and goat cheese with a little boy who admired it. The sun shone warmed me (as did the little guy) and the ocean waves lapped with a joyous tide.|
|The view from our patio|
|Sea glass treasures|
|Our beloved place for five glorious days|
|The crystal, pure Mediterranean Sea|
