ABC Wednesday / "U"

I have learned to avoid drinks with umbrellas because they have SO many calories.
So, I just took them out!
We enjoyed a few Mai Tais while in Maui, Hawaii for 11 days last month.

The letter is U.

that's a cool shot & put a great big smile on my face... i've never had a mai tai before... but Hawaii, man oh man!

Martha Z said...

They make a colorful and artful shot. I didn't know taking out the umbrella would eliminate the calories, I'll have to try that ;)

Barbara said...

A lot more colourful than my umbrellas - these are lovely, great shot.

Seems like it's sometimes worth it to order a calorie-laden drink just to get the special swizzle stix! lol

Joy said...

Who can resist a dressed drink and those umbrellas are so pretty.

An unusual and gorgeous photo of unlimited umbrellas. Well worth a calorie or more!

Thank you for the giggle. I never thought that worked, but since you say so, it must be so!

Cheryl said...

I'm afraid of umbrellas. However, you rocked 'em with your wit and your photo of the wee ones. Great job settling my heart down after visiting so many UMBRELLA posts today.

Paula Scott said...
