Forestry (at your) Service.

Today I was forest girl. If only I could convey to you the amazing smells of the eucalyptus and pine tress. It was a heady aroma that tantalized all my senses. I romped around for a while blowing off the cob webs and delighting in the glory of nature.

In the afternoon I did the same thing at Baldwin beach. As I was getting out of my car I saw my friends Cheyenne & River just getting into theirs. So I hid until they approached & then jumped into the middle of the road waving my arms like a wild woman……only to look upon, not my friends, but an elderly couple (one car ahead) in a similar rental. NICE!

Oh my God, all that beautiful poetry in pictures and words and then you kill it stone dead with your last paragraph. Have you ever thought of growing up? You could have killed those two delightful old people who probably thought their visit to Maui would be a lovely, peaceful holiday and then have a raving lunatic jump out and scare the proverbial out of them. Hope they gnashed their gums at you and shook their walking sticks.

I'm on a "need to know" basis here - what does the term Forestry Service mean exactly? You know I'm always curious about word derivation - is it simply a generic term for forestry commission which is an expression we use in the UK? I have a feeling Ely might come back to me on this one - it might be his mattress moment!

Tempting.......very tempting, but I'm too busy packing! I'll be back to the motherland on Saturday! Thanks for the mention, though!

I agree with Nancy, lovely pictures!

Kind of like the Seinfeld episode where every sentence ends in an exclamation mark!

Safe journey Ely. Have a wonderful trip - perhaps we'll hear about it through Sharon's blog?

Sharon, can you explain the picture "in the glade". It looks so autumnal and yet it's February and you don't have "winter" over there do you?

Sharon, great photos. I love the puddle one...

Mater, no much seasonal change here, but depending on where what altitude you are on the island, you can have all kind of different microclimates. 52, I read somewhere.
In other words, you can move from rainy, warm, tropical weather and vegetation to a dry, chill, alpine kind of landscape in about 30 minutes drive...
