no...not for 4 weeks mind you- but this is the what i have found that happens
to be when vacation time comes around...
it takes 2 FULL weeks to get ready for it- and 2 FULL weeks to get back on track from it!
wheww .. it has been a hard one to recover from
BUT well worth it..
So- now, it is time to share...
Dale and I had an opportunity to go to Hawaii, and we just couldn't pass that up
... WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND would?
we had such a wonderful time.
we flew into Honolulu, and our first stay was at:
|this was just a beautiful place|
this particular area was an open area in the lobby
allowing the birds to visit - :D
|view from our window- over looking Diamond Head|
a very heart touching place
where we stayed for 2 nights...
view of the "fire pit"
yes, we were close, and yes, we felt the heat!
- very cool!
|then we walked a Lava tunnel|
..not so cool
i HATE tunnels
|the Black Sand beach|
as you can see- it was windy and very chilly!
|but this was AMAZING!|
Sea Turtle resting on the sand
|view from our room|
- it was a cloudy day
|the resort we stayed at was so amazing|
we enjoyed our second day just sitting by the pool!
then on to Maui
were we spent our last 3 days
|there was a "park" in the center of the resort where we stayed|
with Waterfalls, Pink Flamingos, a Black Swan, and wild birds
..............my kinda place!!!!!!!!!!!
|The beautiful Maui Beach|
|another view of the resort|
|yep... that's me feeding the Black Swan|
|it was the season for Humpback Whales-|
we saw several- but to get a good picture was impossible
they are very fast
this is a picture of a mom and baby swimming side by side
you can only see their "dorsal fins"
it was AMAZING!
|the beautiful Maui sunset|
Needless to say - we had a BLAST!
