One Word Sunday: Flare At Sunset

This week, Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday Challenge’ is Flare. I’m taking a nostalgic journey back to Sunset Beach on the north shore of Oahu in Hawaii. We waited patiently  for the fiery flare over the ocean and were not disappointed.


Happy Sunday to you all and I hope you’re well and staying safe. We just spoke to  my mom-in-law Kathleen in England, who is going to be 107 in August. We were saying that we would love to be able to travel over to see her but unfortunately won’t be able to come over this year. She understands the situation though and said, “Oh well, in life, whatever we’re dished up, we just have to make the best of it, don’t we?” I’m thinking that her ‘laissez faire’ attitude to life may just be the secret to her longevity.

  2. Beautiful sunset. How are they always pretty? Markus and I see the sunset every day and are always captivated. Happy birthday to your mother-in-law. Her attitude is refreshing.

  3. Wow, beautiful sunset indeed! And cheers to your mother-in-law, she’s the vibe we really need these days 🙂
    I miss traveling through your blog posts;)

  4. Blessing her, dear Sylvia, we are all in same situation, I can’t travel too… I miss my grandchildren… Your photograph is amazing. Thank you, stay in safe, Love, nia

  5. I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I appreciate the opportunity to tag along. The sunset reminds me of the ones our older daughter and I saw in Costa Rica some years ago. I’ll miss my trip to France this year, but hopefully I’ll be able to go once again next year and it will then be even sweeter.


  6. Gorgeous photo, Sylvia. And your Mother in Law’s quote is spot on! We really should make the most of and see the best in any situation. Happy Sunday to you.
