When I saw the theme for this week at the Heart Journalling project at The Greeting Farm, I knew that I had to focus on my honeymoon.... we spent several weeks lazing around the beaches and delights in the pacific paradise of Samoa.
I've never been a beachgoing person, so I've no idea how I ended up in Samoa for my honeymoon. But it was paradise. I can recall moments as if they happened yesterday, and I would love to visit again. Although these aren't pictures I took myself, we spent a lot of time at Lalomanu Beach... I can remember sitting in a fale (the huts) just watching the beach and water... and then I could hear my husband walking the beach singing the theme song to "Gilligan's Island" .... good grief!
I made reference to Robert Louis Stevenson here, as he spent his last years living in Samoa. We spent quite some time at his home, Vailima, and walking the gardens. I've always love his written works, so it was humbling and special to walk where he did. Our first prayer and the grace we shared at our Wedding Breakfast were chosen from his prayers and writings....
Thanks for peepin'!
