This is a hard one. I’ve been blessed to see so many breathtaking places in my life so far. I would have to say one that really stands out was the views of the mountains from our whale watching boats in Maui. One of the other places was in Kauai; it was where they taped the opening scene of Fantasy Island.

Trunk Bay ~ about 12 years ago.

DH and I alone in the bay staring out at that mountainous formation in the water. It was early and we were the only ones on the beach. It was so beautiful it felt like we were the only ones on a deserted island.

New England from the rocky Maine coast to the majestic mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont. Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. There is no part of New England that is not beautiful to me.

Santorini at sunset having a drink on top of the volcano

arriving in Venice at night on the water taxi

on the Lido Deck of the Carnival Liberty at midnight listening to Teena Marie (ironic it was her last live performance before her untimely death) surrounded by 3000 smooth jazz fans all dress in white

Maui on the beach on south shore at 0500 just as the sun is rising with the most beautiful woman in the world
