Bananas and Beans Grow; Bells and Bridges Don't

ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. Says Mrs. Nesbitt: "Some have been with us from the very first round, others have joined in along the way! What fun! Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture! ABC Wednesday is now entering a 3rd year of fun! I'll raise a glass to you all!". We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "B".

Well, yes, sometimes the titles just aren't that clever. This qualifies as one of those times! : )

Bananas and beans at the ever lovely Hilo Farmer's Market (oh, no, I'm not nearly done with posting images from there!). If you plan a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii (I've said this before and I don't mind repeating it for the newcomers), DO plan on a visit to Hilo's Farmer's Market. It's a visual feast and a culinary feast. Every Wednesday and Saturday morning bright and early. Go early as it is coolest then. And, in case you're wondering, those are long beans. An Asian variety. "Dee licious"!

Bells on a performer at the Indian Market in Santa Fe, NM. The Indian Market and the Spanish Market are a big draw for tourists and locals alike. Many art collectors from around the world attend this yearly event. Both are held on different weekends.

I love, love, love this bridge. It crosses a stream that comes down from the mountain and goes out to the ocean. The water under this bridge is that stream and ocean water mixed together. This is by the Honolii Park. Go to the link to get a better idea of where this bridge is in relation to the ocean. Magnificent, isn't it?

Bed in a bedroom at a Bed and Breakfast! Let the obliteration begin! Be brave! Blathering, babbling, bemoaning, bantering and ballyhooing are all allowed!

Tag, you're IT!

Ballyhooing has to be my new word of the day. So much going on in this post.

Wow! A fun round of B's. The bridge is spectacular - I could love it, too! And the bed and breakfast bedroom looks blissful.
