It was by mere coincidence that my outfit matched the decor of the hotel room furnishings. This quaint yet luxurious retreat provides an unparalleled oasis like none other that I have experienced. Lanai–the pineapple island is my personal shangri la. There is no other place that I would rather be when in search of a bit of R&R. I was engaged to be married here, and frankly almost divorced if you read my previous post (kidding, kidding) but it is not the fond memories of my first visit that make it so special. The island and her people are just amazing. I am constantly being drawn here almost as if some magnetic vortex is pulling me. It’s pretty normal that I ask my husband to just jump on a plane for a weekend trip. I ask about twice a month–we make it twice a year–fine, I’ll take it!  Once I got him there for six days–talk about heaven.

The wild spinner dolphins that come to frolic in Manele Bay and the abundance of deer (Lanai is the only of the Hawaiian islands that deer inhabit) and the ranch-like environment with horses galore at the Lodge at Koele=Pure bliss. It’s too bad that our trip was cut short this time but we’ll be back. I’m most sad because I had some amazing photo shoots planned that would have featured beautiful scenery. I will have to wait for the next trip to share that.

I boarded the plane in this Express ensemble–a flourescent yellow blouse with the bright blue shorts. I wore my Hermes Blue Electric Gator CDC and no, security did not think it was a weapon. The agate earrings that I have on are by Doolittle Jewelry. My eye make-up is blue as well, just a thin coat of Bobbi Brown’s Blue Moon cream eyeshadow.

Blue and Yellow combine beautifully. Based solely on my observation, the interior designers of the Four Season’s Lodge at Koele agree, although they didn’t go nearly as bright.
