While on vacation in Hawaii last fall, Anthony and I visited the aquarium near Waikiki Beach. It might seem like a weird thing to do considering we’d been snorkeling and seeing and swimming with the most beautiful fish. But I try to make it a point to visit the local aquarium and zoo wherever I travel. And I’m so glad I did on this trip. Yes, the fish were spectacular. But did you get a look at this rock?

It looked to me as if someone had gone to town on these babies with giant rolls of washi tape. I loved the soft pastels against the dark rockface and flowing, freeform design.

And this one was my favorite. Absolutely mesmerizing with those beautifully done swirls.
