Textures

To celebrate our wedding anniversary and to escape the cold and snow, my hubby and I traveled by plane
(de-icing the plane as seen through the airplane window)


(The scrubby gray and lime green plants covering the "mountain" contrast with the deep blue sky dotted with floating white puffy clouds.) 
to the lovely, warm, semi-arid tropical Caribbean island of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin. 




We "discovered" a most gorgeous beach, Happy Bay.  Rocks emerge in various configurations at one end of this lovely crescent of sand.  



Time to return home.  Our flight out has been significantly delayed.  We miss our connector.  The airline puts us up for the night and we get about 2½ hours of sleep.  The upside of this is we get to watch a beautiful sunrise from the window of the plane.  ( I will confess to you that it's rare for me to ever see the sun rise.)  Here we are on top of the clouds!
