...to the rain forests of the northern part of the island...there was a lot of green to be seen. If you look carefully...you may just see a speck of white high above the green canyon...getting a birds-eye-view via a zip-line. Let's just say I have no photos from up there...it all zipped by far too quickly!
We observed sea turtles...a little green and a little brown...
...and walked on rocky shores with golden green moss...
...while birds of the same colour sang to us from the palms nearby.
And I must include a photo of the elusive Kona gecko...he disappeared magically most every time I pulled out the camera. This little guy was quite bright green in colour...with red specks along his back.
Climbing over walls...and growing along the roadside...we saw the most amazing giant split-leaf philodendrons. No green thumbs required...they grow abundant and wild.
Though I am not wearing green today...I have been been known to wear the colour on occasion...as I did the night we visited Bubba Gump's Shrimphouse and tried Forrest Gump's Nikes on for size.
And...along with the green theme...it's time to see who has the 'luck of the Irish'...and have a draw on My Front Porch for the 'not so green' Olympic mittens that I am giving away. If you left me a comment on my last pre-vacation post...your name is in the pot. I enjoyed hearing your thoughts on the winter games...it seems everyone caught the enthusiasm once the games began!
And now...the winner is...Ellen B @ The Happy Wonderer! Send me your current mailing address, Ellen...and I'll pop your Vancouver 2010 Olympic souvenir in the mail.
Have a wonderful day!
