Better than Gold

A day by the ocean is better than gold.

But even more brilliant is what the nights hold.

The glow of the sun as it kisses the sea

infuses our spirits with tranquility...

reminds us that endings make room for new starts...

and warms us with beauty that captures our hearts.

Not even the menu serves up a distraction.

For Todd, it's the view that provides the attraction.

(Though fish and filet do give some satisfaction!)

Your wonderful poem and pictures bring Maui memories back to me. The evening sunsets are truly gorgeous. It is just so tranquil and I love the pictures of Todd just relaxing. That alone did my heart good. Good too that you got a picture of you and Dave in the evening twilight. I just wish we could have been there.

I do hope that you are taking lots and lots of pictures. Then you can bring the whole lot and let us see them when you come here for the golfing trip.

Just what day are you coming home? I have forgotten, even though you did tell me. I know the five days pass all too quickly when you are in Hawaii. Keep on having fun.

I'll take some fish and filet with a side of sunset any day!

Your words and photographs work perfectly together. You did get gold, a golden sunset! We hope you obey the Bible and eat, drink and be merry...wait...we're pretty sure we got that wrong. ;-) Enjoy!
