hawaii walks

I've been trying to go on walks every morning...the weather is usually cool.

If you are lucky, the morning rain will have stopped. (Sometimes I get caught mid-walk in a passing shower.)

The sun is just starting to get out of bed and you can feel the energy of the neighborhood waking up and getting ready for their day ahead.

Here are some things I've seen on my walks...the humane society's truck. I wondered what they were looking for? Hopefully nothing bigger than a dog or cat.

This house has a cotton tree in front. At first when I saw it, I thought someone had "decorated" it with cotton balls here and there.

Might be kind of hard to see the cotton, I was walking past when I snapped this.

I love how big the sky is in Hawaii.

Not many electrical wires to block your view, not many buildings either, well, where we live anyway.

Without these obstructions, it makes the sky real big!

This house has many birds, every morning they are chattering away.

To my surprise on this particular walk, there was a cute dwarf bunny, just out in front.

When it saw me stop to try to take its photo, it hopped back inside the fence.

A guy under his Dodge Dart praying that it will run so that he can go to work.

What interesting things have you been checking out on your walks?

Nate, it actually lives in that fenced area and can climb in and out.

Take care.

Ahh love the morning "cold" in Honolulu :) Seeing the Humane Society truck reminds me of the year I worked there as a volunteer, hehe. I was a dog washer...

How cool! I was just taking a walk around our Seattle neighborhood tonight thinking of all the quaint quirkiness I love about it.

I love that sky photo--gorgeous! I've got to get to Hawaii someday.

That's neat about the rabbit!

A rabbit hanging out on the side of the road like that??? Too cute, but real smart to hop back into where it belonged.

We went for a short walk up the mountain this morning. All I saw (or was trying to see) were pretty weed-flowers to pull so I can stick them in my garden.

That must've been a hard job Kathy!

Hope you get a chance to come to Hawaii Abigail, especially now that you live "closer" :)

Nate, Cute yeah??

Super smart Rowena, so far all the "weed-flowers" you've been picking up are nice!

Take care everyone!

I never think to take my camera on my walks but I should. ;-) I hope that little bunny stays safe!

The next day I walked in front of that house and there were 2 bunnies! Debinhawaii :)

Take care.
