Still dreamin' of the Beach


After all the craziness of Christmas it was time to escape for some R & R so we headed off to Maui.  I can't even tell you all the things I loved about this place.  It as really paradise on earth.  Usually by the end of a trip I am ready to come home and sleep in my own bed....but not this time...I could have stayed there forever.  I think Matt and I may have to retire there or at least make it an annual winter pilgimage ....yes it was really that good.


The climate was great.  A pleasant 80 degrees everyday.  Not too hot but warm enough to be out swimming and playing on the beach every day.  I think this was reinforced when we arrived back in Spokane to 11 degrees and talk of a winter storm warning. Uggh.

We spent some time doing a few touristy things but mostly we just hung around the pool or went down to the beach.  Just being together and having some fun. If I had to pick one word it would be BLISS. 

Pure bliss.

  1. So, so jealous, and we're not even buried under snow.

    Maybe some day I can make it to Hawaii to cheer you on during THE Ironman.

  2. I honestly can't even look at this right now while it's blizzarding out my window.

    Please take me with you when you make your pilgrimages there.

    Ken and I went to Maui in January and June. January is THE BEST month to go, imho.

    The Moses impression only proves what I've always known about Matt. ;) The pic before that where he is engulfed in the wave is AMAZING! Love the shots. Living vicariously through you at this moment.
