Growing up, my family spent three weeks every August going to Hawaii. We stayed at a resort that had a small number of freestanding bungalows surrounding a grassy patch that merged to the sand and sea. The rooms were low-key but spacious enough to comfortably settle in and call home. Days were spent collecting puka shells, swimming, reading books, playing cards and not much else. These photos, although shot in Australia, remind me of those times. The relaxed, carefree spirit and 70’s vibe feels very familiar and gives me a renewed appreciation for a time when unscheduled, lazy days were all that was planned.
