This peacock is very calmly crossing a parking lot, not a bit worried about being surrounded by cars – probably used to them.


These guys look like they’re doing a little dance as they walk… They are called gallinules or ‘alae ‘ula, a native endangered Hawaiian species.


We felt carefree, too, in the laid-back atmosphere of Hawai’i.  Here is my husband, Dale, relaxing on  the verandah behind our room on Maui after a great breakfast of leftovers from the night before…
