    At Volcano National Park on July 22, 2019

    I love the patterns to be found in the lava rock.

    @Dawni those things here are flies that bite, or it looks like the ones we have here.
    It is pretty though :)

    quit smoking so bad for you and not going to help with the Hand/Foot/Mouth. I would hate to think that it might make it go deeper in the throat or lungs.

    I know :( It's just hard to not have one when you're tired and thinking about stuff... And it's raining, and there's chai haha. Cigarettes n chai just go so well together lol. I know, excuses, but really, I've been trying to cut down and I'd like to think I'm successful. I only have a couple a day, too busy for more lol.

    This pretty thing didn't bite. I think. It didn't wanna leave even when I was moving my hand around lol

    Pretty bug, Dawni. I wish I had a photo of this, but don't. A couple days ago, while we were still on the Big Island of Hawaii, sitting at the airport killing time while waiting for our flight, my granddaughter caught a bird in her hand and held it up for us to see. But grandpa told her to let it go, which she immediately did and I have no snapshot to share. I was amazed she could catch one at all, of course. And then of course, I did the responsible thing and made her wash her hands thoroughly with soap and water.

    Here's a fun photo I snapped while we strolled in Honolulu today:

    Ginger Swan Honolulu 20190728_113800.jpg

    A swan emerges from within the ginger leaf. A fairy tale in the making, yes?

    This is where I was last week. Man, I love this lake. The water looks like glass. This pic is unfiltered and has had no alterations. The water looks like glass, and the pic itself looks like a postcard. I love my camera for nature pics!! :) (Too bad I can't take product photos as well!!)

    This is in Leadville, Colorado, where "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" (famous for surviving the titanic) made her millions. She was a silver miner, turned gold miner when the silver exchange rate tanked over night. It's also got the highest mean elevation in the entire nation, at almost 2 miles high - 10,151 feet.

    Anyway the lake is called Turquoise Lake and it's one of my favorite places to be in Colorado.

    I don't like Lake Dillon, Cee, it's too crowded, not fun to camp in, and seriously not near as beautiful as Turquoise is.

    Oh, dumb me... I thought all those colorful stones were soaps! And somebody spliced them into a photo! Wouldn't that be cool? Well, it is a cool photo any way. Thanks for sharing! :cool:
