We have been able to go to Turtle Bay several different times over the years. Most often we go with a school group with lots of little ones. I have always enjoyed each trip. This time was special, though. We went with just family—our friend Amy came along, but she counts as family, so …she doesn’t count. As I was saying, just family, with grown kids, offers a very different experience. In the past, I tended to chase after and herd kids. This time, I was able to really engage in the activities and actually became absorbed in what we were doing.
I think this was the favorite spot: feeding the birds. They were full of color—literally and figuratively.
Next up: the butterflies. I want a garden like this!
