kauai sketchbook 2
Monday, February 20, 2012
There’s a big grassy area right before the sandy drop-off to the beach that’s ideal for sketching – with open views to the deep blue Pacific. The colors of the ocean are mesmerizing…especially the aquamarine. I found a nice shady spot beneath a tree to sit and sketch and take it all in.
A super rough sketch of the view from our lanai – looking out across the vast ocean.
Bare feet in warm sand. Happiness.
The night sky is dazzling here. Inky blue black with brilliant stars – Venus is especially bright. Thoughts of ancient mariners finding their way…guided by the stars, sun, moon & planets. I love this quote by John Muir: Whatever special nests we make; leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone, we all dwell in a house of one room with the starry firmament for our roof.
