Summer time joys!

Well, today my blog frustration level is very high. I haven't posted for awhile, and can't even seem to remember how to change the pictures! Goodness, now I guess I'll create another post about our last vacation trip...if I can!

We spent 10 glorious day is Hawaii, this time we went to Maui for 4 of the days.We stayed in an old Inn in the heart of lanai and enjoyed the local flavor there. We went for a day - long drive and experienced more local flavor, the best smoothie ever, made in an old special-needs school bus and the best banana bread on the planet, from a small family-owned stand.

The bread was delicious, and the hospitality was amazing.

While in Maui, we went on an all day excursion. We rode the Trinity catamaran to a small, privately owned island. We saw amazing scenery, including a pod of spinner dolfins just diving and jumping and spinning all the time! It was amazing, But we didn't take our camera, dumb!

We went snorkeling there, and that was another adventure. We saw a sea turtle and followed him for awhile...way cool! That was probably our favorite day of vacation..and we have no pictures to show!

Back on Oahu, we ended our vacation in a BIG way. We stayed at the Outrigger Reef, and our room was right over-looking the beach, It was a corner room, so one balcony looked over Diamond Head, and the other; the ocean.

When we picked up our rental, we 'up-graded', for very little $, and had a BLAST in this car!

Come on, how could we NOT have fun?

We drove around a LOT and took an extra loop through town before we turned the car over to the valet!

We really had a great time, and are looking forward to the next was quiet, and a little lonely without any family, but it was a great way to celebrate our 34th anniversary!
