Pretty in Pink…

Look, I found some more ‘pink bits’ from home and away to share 😊.
And as its the last day of April I couldn’t let the chance of another posting
to the Pink editions of Life in Colour pass by

Always a pretty good idea – don’t you think ?

Pretty pink tulips – a stress relief gift during the long lockdown (May 2020)

Another from the 2019 Leunig exhibition– I’m not sure what he had in mind here – but he does have a liking for the colour pink though.

Plenty of pink thongs on the remaining Thong Tree
on the newly renovated riverfront in Echuca ( April 2021)

I have to admit that the pink coloured walls inside the Anglican Cathedral Napier NZ were confronting to begin with. After a while they were less obvious – just blended with the other (cream) walls and the blue painted ceiling (Dec 2011)

There were several of these very fanciful lounge benches in Calgary Alberta
at a place called Olympic Plaza.
Where all the medal presentations took place for the 1988 Winter Olympics but now its a fabulous water park – a little haven in the middle of a busy city. (Sept 2010)
The benches were basic but also very ‘modern’ looking…and very pink 😊


Then there was the delicious pink fronted many windowed house we stumbled upon during a walk on Fogo Island Newfoundland (Sept 2013).
You can see more of it here

And in the distance on Waikiki Beach dwarfed by surrounding high rise buildings is the fabulously luxurious Royal Hawaiian Hotel
The beautiful Pink Palace
We spent a few nights there on our first visit to Hawaii 1988
haven’t been able to afford it since, so now it’s basic apartments for us 😊


Linking an extra (pink) edition to Life in Colour April 
hosted by Jude at Travel Words. 
Next month’s colour will be revealed on Sunday – Maybe you’d like to join in some time

  1. I seem recall that when “colour Pink” was announced, you had an aversion to it and didn’t think you had much pink your life. I also note that some those lounging on the beach are in pink or lying on pink

  2. I’ve entered books since I first found them. Eight years old and the person reading Heidi to me went to the hospital. I found the book and puzzled the rest out myself.

  3. I suppose ‘In the pink’ refers to a healthy white persons skin tone. The thong tree in Echuca was full so another has been started.

  4. A wonderful collection of pinks here. That cathedral is very colourful, and I love the pink benches. Thanks for finding these to share.
