What I did on holiday


I ate too much. I drank too much. I shopped too much. However, I did show some restraint when it came to sunning myself so did not get sunburned.

My Rare One and I drove on one-lane, sheer cliffside roads with no guard rails (yikes). We hiked around the 'Iao Valley and the Seven Sacred Pools as well. We went to the volcanic craters of Haleakala on Maui and Diamond Head on O'ahu. And in Honolulu, we had a free ukulele lesson!

One of my favourite things was visiting 5 labyrinth sites on Maui. I'll be blogging about them over the course of the winter so stay tuned. But here's a sneak peek of a labyrinth at Dragon's Teeth Point in Kapalua, complete with a beautiful rainbow!

Glad you didn't get burned!! Looking forward to hearing about your happy time!! (p.s. I lived in Hawaii for four years and never got to Maui! But I did go to the Big Island).

sounds like you enjoyed yourselves and I can't wait to see the the other labyrinth photos, they are a passion of mine, we would all benefit from more time spent in the labyrinths.I could use one right now actually,

Jeanne said...

Amazing! And good for you, sounds like the perfect holiday for me. I solely watch Hawaii 5 0 for the view and all the colours.

So glad you are back! I have missed you! Oh and I'm going to be working on Reg's Bender post this aft. It's snowing for the first time and I don't want to do crap.

Happy for you that you had such a stunning vacation and am envious of all that sunshine you must have gotten. Good for you for not getting scorched!

I'm lucky if I get to just leave my town, yet alone the state!

Glad you had a good time! I hope someday, I will get to take a vacation and blog about it!

Unless you were smuggling drugs in your jumpers I demand to see a picture of the couple on vacation. Even if you just send it to my email addy. It's been long enough. We are on the same tribe and I have so few close tribesmates who I respect and enjoy their comments. I will be QUITE put out if this request is ignored.
