Foto Friday: The Ridiculous Easter Island Bunny

You can tell from the expression on my face that I wasn’t an entirely willing participant in this production. No, I didn’t lose a bet. A dare is more like it, but even doesn’t quite fit. The story behind this photograph is actually kind of sad.

This isn’t the time or place to tell the whole tale just yet, but in a nutshell it was important to take this photo of me impersonating the Easter Bunny on Easter Island because I promised Roseitta that I would.  Even though I felt silly, and fretted that it might offend the locals, it was the least I could do given that she never made it to Easter Island like we planned. A friend who wouldn’t sacrifice a bit of her dignity to keep a promise isn’t worth having, right?

So, I hope this brings a smile to your face, and Happy Easter if that’s your thing. Springtime greetings to one and all!


  1. Aw, that’s not silly it’s fun! Something I would definitely do. Lucky you going to Easter Island. We still haven’t been there and it is so high on our list!

    1. Thanks Deb! Yes, it was a privilege to go Easter Island. Wish I’d been able to stay longer. You guys would love it there. When you go, try to schedule your visit during Tapati, which is their big festival at the beginning of Feb.
