Are you tired of my vacation yet? I hope not. This post is pure delight. Enjoy!
That is an alligator swimming in the water, not a tree limb. It’s tiny and hard to see as I only had my cell phone for this shot.
And the finale – Happy Birthday to Me!
I hope you enjoyed this little slide show of my wonderfully relaxing vacation. Boy, did I ever need the sunshine, warmth, and complete pampering. It was a slice of heaven and I’ve been telling anyone who asks, it was the closest to paradise I expect to get without actually dying.
So, now tell me where you have been that was totally renewing.
and a Happy Bday to you 🙂 Such beautiful scenery — ahhhh
I’m headed north tomorrow for a MI color tour – can’t wait!
Hope I will see pics of the trip on your lovely blog.
Wow…I just got caught up on your vacation photos…all three posts. Hilton Head and the Hilton look absolutely amazing. Now I want to go!
You would love it Annie. And I took so many pictures that one post just wouldn’t do it justice.
Absolutely beautiful! You are so blessed! – Maureen
Indeed. And today I can use the reminder. Thanks Maureen.
That was like a mini-vacation just looking at your beautiful pictures!
It’s fun to group them in mish-mash ways – sort of like life.
What a stunning place and fantastic photos! I think when I think of magic, I always think of Paris. I don’t know if I’ll ever get back there, but you never can tell. That’s my place of rebirth and renewal.
Paris is the perfect place Linda. I’m a fan too.
I can almost smell the salt air. And Happy Birthday!
Not tired, but maybe a tad bit jealous. Looks like a wonderful time!
Happy birthday! My renewing vacation is coming up … Turkey in less than two weeks! I’ll post photos too. X
I can’t wait to see the pictures you post. Have fun Susan.
It looks like you had a great birthday, Renee. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!
Renee, I completely enjoyed every second you shared with us of your paradise. Happy Birthday!
He-Who took me to Maui (his first visit there, my second) for my 50th birthday. He planned every detail without any input from me. It was the best vacation and the most renewing. The stage was set for one of the best years of my life thanks to him.
Happy Birthday, Renee. 🙂 I’m rather sorry to see an end to your photos. They have been beautiful. I loved the shots of your clam dinner and the triple sun the best.
Isn’t it great to have photos to relive those special days? Happy belated birthday!
A belated happy birthday to you! Love all the photos! I didn’t grow up near the ocean, but having lived on the Alaskan coast for the past few years, I’ve definitely come to love it. Of course, I love warm weather more than what we usually get here! But any coast / ocean setting is beautiful!
As to places I’ve been that were amazing…Paris…Tahiti…mountain resorts in Colorado…like you said in a previous post, having a great hotel is also key…great scenery, great food, and some luxury pampering…bliss! ~ Sheila
Glad you captured the non-hussle-and-bussle. Happy birthday, Renee!
BTW – I just returned from my blog break/vacation … and the first (and only so far) is here. http://afrankangle.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/on-north-american-europe/
I just love your photos, Renee. So relaxing. The picture of the shellfish looks like something out of Bon Appetit magazine. Thanks for sharing!
So serene! Love that you had time to stop and notice little details. I am a terrible photographer – lacking in both quantity and quality – you inspire me to resolve to do better! Happy Birthday – looks like you celebrated in style!
Well, I’ll put in a vote for Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes, France, and the surrounds. I love that place. Or, I can go up the road to Yosemite, at least when it’s not shut down.
Oh that was refreshing. I especially love the shots of the gulls and the plover or whatever that is. The food got my attention, too! What’s a vacation without delightful food? Happy belated birthday.
Great photographs of what looks like a wonderful vacation. How can we be tired of paradise? Happy Birthday to you (even though this comes late).
Beautiful photographs. How could I reach here so late!! 🙂
