Watery Wednesday, ABC Wednesday / "Q," "R" and "S"

Click on photos to enlarge!
My husband and I took an 11 day trip to Maui, Hawaii and just returned this past Friday night.
I missed the letters Q & R so I will add them to S for this week.
This is the view we had on a bluff overlooking Ho'okipa Beach on the eastern side of the island.
It is well know around the world among the wind surfing crowd.
It is a place where we like to spend some quality time together...just watching.

Some wind surf.
Some kite surf.
And, others board surf.
Some enter the water from the sandy beach while others prefer climbing over the rocky bluff .

Ready, Set, GO!

What a gorgeous sight it is!
Can quality time get any better than this?

Letters Q, R and S
