Okay, I’m back. Just in case you’re wondering why I’ve not been responding to “Likes” and other stuff, I’ve been away for since April 8 and just returned to El Paso only last night. Where have I been this past month? Three nights in Sydney, Australia, followed by a transpacific cruise to Seattle, Washington.
So, just in case you’re growing weary of China, here’s a preview of what to expect some time after that series concludes. From Sydney we traveled to Noumea:
Lifou and its sparkling blue waters:
Port Vila on Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu:
Espiritu Santo with it’s crystal clear fresh water pools:
The uninhabited Mystery Island of Vanuatu:
Viti Levu, Fiji, with its cascading waterfalls and intense sunsets:
The beaches of Dravuni, Fiji:
Pago Pago and the Westernmost U.S. National Park:
Honolulu on the island of Oahu in Hawaii:
The Grand Canyon of the Pacific — Waimea Canyon on the Hawaiian island of Kauai:
The frontier-style streets of Lahaina on Maui:
And finally the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State with images of Marymere Falls and a blizzard on Hurricane Ridge:
Yes, we really did end this trip in the midst of a raging blizzard.
Look for more images from this adventure in my next travel blog series sometime after the completion of China.
