MAUI – Waking up next to the Pacific Ocean. Palm trees swaying. Beach run in Lahaina.
My third trip to Hawaii. My first visit to Maui. I feel blessed to celebrate 10 years with my hubby.
Also. I need to resist the urge to check work email. I scheduled some tweets. Hotel wifi tempts me to stay plugged into my life back on the mainland.
This view from our balcony took my breath away. Vibrant sunset colors reminded me to enjoy what I have right now.
My inner shutterbug likes to take center stage on vacations.
We spotted three dolphins playing in front this boat last night. Squint. You’ll see it.
I wanted to start snapping away. I knew my iPhone lens would capture a black smudge. I gave up on the perfect Maui photo and enjoyed the impromptu show. I watched dolphins leaping and flicking their tails. I imagined hearing their laughter. I squeezed Mark’s hand.
My favorite part of my first sunset in Maui.
The leftovers from Hurricane Dolores transformed San Diego into Water World. iPhones and televisions buzzed with flash flood warnings. Cars swam in flooded streets in Ramona. I watched a new pool grow in our backyard.
I’m blaming the rain on this lingering cold.
Before the rain, I savored stunning views of San Diego and the bay. I think you could see the tips of Baja California coast and Mexico, if you squinted.
I was starving after our hike up and down the Bayside trail.
