The layout of our house

A week on Ohau | Justina Blakeney


See from the Waimea Falls Park & Botanical Gardens

I just bought back again from a getaway on Oahu with loved ones. We put in the week on the seashores on  the North Shore, climbing up wild hills, consuming from food stuff trucks, enjoying game titles and decompressing. We even tried using surfing for the initially time.  It was a incredibly mellow excursion and fantastic to reconnect with character and invest some excellent time with men and women that I like. Below, some snaps from our walks as a result of the Waimea Falls Park & Botanical Gardens and a very long hike we took.

I am a *extremely* sluggish hiker, and when I hike I love creating recurrent stops to just take images, and go “foraging” for colours, shapes and styles that encourage my design function. (You can learn far more about my ‘foraging’ follow in my ‘Jungalow: Beautify Wild’ book 🙂

On this hike, I collected some fallen foliage and points. When I received back to the lodge, I made a several collages that spotlight the unique colours, styles, designs and textures. The polka-dotted leaves are my beloved! They are spores on the leaves, which are reproductive buildings (form of like seeds).

Of training course, I had to #facethefoliage even though I was at it…
