We've just returned from two weeks in Maui celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.
We saw glorious sunsets

And a beautiful blue ocean on our many excursions around the island

I got in the spirit right away (with the best Mai Tai on the island at Mama's Fish House!)

And we had several wonderful dinners AND desserts at great restaurants! Look at that coconut pie!!  We were actually celebrating Cris' birthday that evening.

But most of the time we ate at home on our lanai watching the ocean and the people below.  We saw whales almost every day from our birds eye view of the world on the 6th floor.

Did I mention the sunsets?

The flowers were gorgeous!

And the landscape and seascape awe-inspiring

Iao Needle State Park was beautiful

We saw the sunrise above the clouds at Haleakala Crater (28 miles of switchbacks from sea level to 10,000 feet)

and sunset that same night from Lahaina harbor (a long day!)

Took my spiral notebook and pencil and wrote about our adventures each day.  We met lots of great characters that will undoubtedly appear in future stories (Stick Man, Romeo, Pink Lady and Mogambe).  But now its back to work!  I start my next class, Keys to Effective Editing, next week.  And I need to catch up with you all!
