Home for the holidays

People relaxing at Spencer Beach Park in Hawaii

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Vacation or Staycation.’ See more responses here.

I can’t remember the last time I actually went anywhere on vacation so I’m opting for staycation, which is staying home for your holidays. In Hawaii, a fine staycation doesn’t require a great deal to make it work.

A nice beach is a good start. Some shade, either from trees or a decent portable canopy. Tables and chairs are a plus, or a convenient branch to sit on. A variety of coolers suitably stocked are welcome, a barbecue even better. And of course, some warm sunny weather and calm blue waters make it a staycation to remember.

      Oh, rain, I remember rain!Actually I get more rain here than I did in Washington State, the last month or more we’ve been very dry indeed. Rainy Northern Europe sounds quite refreshing by comparison.

      Las Vegas is called the ninth island because it’s so popular with Hawaiians! I went down to one particular beach to take photos because it’s always packed on weekends, but when I got there, there were only a few groups around. The best laid plans and all that!
